Which tent during the volksfest or does it matter??

by Roadquill

Hi gang, I will be in Stuttgart during the Volksfest. The webpage (http://www.cannstatter-volksfest.de/index.php?id=19&L=1) has 10 different venues. Are there any differences? Is there a recommended one? I would like to contact the "best" and see if I can reserve part of a table and then let whatever VT'rs join in if they wanted, but since I don't have a clue what I am doing, I thought it better to ask here first. Karl

Best does for sure depend on the personal criteria.
Beer: either Schwaben Bräu, Stuttgarter Hofbräu, Dinkelacker or Fürstenberg
For me a choice on this would be easy: Fürstenberg
Size of the tent: the bigger the ...

Program:
Differs not only from tent to tent but also there from day to day. From the names of the bands I would say that Fürstenberg and Schwaben Bräu tent have the most traditional bands. The Wasenwirt a music program definitely more for the younger crowd.

The day I went there was room in all the tents so I wandered around and sat down in any tent. I don,t know if it is possible to reserve places, the crowd is so much smaller than Munich. But please try to see the procession, this was a highlight, the brewery carts drawn by draught horse beautifully decorated with flowers, the Bands and the groups dressed in their National costumes were fabulous.
I had a funny experience in that I had been standing at the side of the street in amongst a large group of people and had been chatting to a local lady and said how this was a novelty for me coming from Australia - she immediately shouted at the people in front of us(in German naturally) "make way for this Australian woman to get to the front, she has to see something!" They did too so I had a great view.

The venue for the Volksfest is the Cannstatterwasen, it will resemble a fairground with rides and so on. the u-bahn 11 is a special just to the grounds. Cannstatt is a suburb close to the city, the trip will only take a few minutes. There will be festivities in the city as well such as closed off streets with eating and drinking venues outdoors. The festival takes place over a week or so.
Note that the procession takes place on sunday the 26th sept, I don,t know where it starts but if you are at the Wasen before 11a.m. that,s where it ends up. Otherwise just ask a local where would be a good vantage point.

There used to be an Alpirsbacher tent. If it still exists, try that one, as it would serve the best beer. Otherwise, I agree with abalada that Fuerstenberg is the best choice.

Travel Tips for Stuttgart

Looking southeast from the station tower

by Nemorino

If the weather is good when you arrive at Stuttgart Central Station (Hauptbahnhof), you can start getting oriented by going up to the observation deck on the tenth floor of the station's clock tower. Admission is free.

Here is a view looking southeast. The Opera House is in the center of the photo, partly hidden by two trees. The white building to the left of the Opera House is the Small House for spoken theater, and the darker flat building to the right is the Landtag or State Parliament building.

My visit to Stuttgart was in...

by PartyRambo

My visit to Stuttgart was in fact, a visit to the suburbs os the city - namely, to visit Porsche & Mercedes, but also to visit Gemballa Automobilinterieur und Technik, in the suburb of Leonberg.
If you love Porsches, this is the ultimate pit stop - but you must be serious about tuning your car to the top of its limits.
Uwe Gemballa's love of racing led him to create one of the finest tuning & customizing Porsche shop in Germany, and his debut of the 'Avalanche' in (1986?) put him on the design map as well.
The attached photo is of a red Avalanche (a modified 911 Turbo) through a glass window, so I'll dig up & scan a better picture at a future date.

Destination Farm Restaurant

by seoulgirl about OBERE RAUHMUHLE

This is a fun place to go. It is family run, husband cooks and wife is the waitstaff. They are hippie types with a farm. You will most likely be eating there own pork, butchered by them recently. They have a nice outdoor garden which is surrounded by their farm and a walking path behind. They also have a nice assortment of vegetarian dishes. My friend had some tofu cakes that were a special one day and we were all jealous. The jagreschnitzel is excellent. Everything is very good.

Hauptbahnhofturm

by antistar

The train station tower is ten stories tall, and topped with the grand star of Mercedes. Not only is it an eye-catching icon of the city, perfect for navigation, but it also serves as a viewing platform to snatch great pictures of the city. If you want to stand under the Mercedes star, you don't even have to pay any money, as the lifts to the top are free. If you have the time you can even stop off at the exhibitions in the different levels, or the restaurant on floor 8. To get to the top you must take one of the two lifts in the tower to floor 9, and then walk up a few more steps to the observation platform.

The tower is open until 9pm on weekdays, until 2pm on Saturdays (partial opening until 4pm), and on Sundays it is closed.

Oberer Schlossgarten

by antistar

Behind the theater is a beautiful little park in the shadow of the north wing of the Neues Schloss. From here you can cut through to Schlossplatz, past the Kunstegaude (House of Art), to view the Schlossplatz itself, and the Jubilaeumssaule. Also fronting onto the upper palace gardens are the state theater and opera house.
