    Stuttgart Wine Village
    At the end of August wine connoisseurs and wine lovers from all over the world return to the beautiful state capital of Baden-Württemberg to sample the fruits of summer at the popular "Stuttgart Wine Village". More than 350 wines from Baden-Württemberg are sold in more than 120 lovingly decorated vine bowers on Marktplatz and Schillerplatz around the Altes Schloss. Typical regional specialities such as Maultaschen (meat and spinach stuffing in pasta pockets), Kässpätzle (Swabian cheese noodles), Schupfnudeln mit Kraut (potato noodles with cabbage), etc. are served with the wine. The most delightful and largest wine festival in Germany goes on for ten days and eleven nights in Stuttgart

    Christmas

    uuuuuh, it reminds me of "Glühwine" = "mulle wine", (a type of prepared warm wine) and "weiswurst"(sausage) . I love this combination in the cold December christmas atmosphere and

    the Christmas Market in Stuttgart is not only one of the oldest, but certainly also one of the most beautiful and largest in Europe with over 200 stalls on Marktplatz and Schillerplatz. The Stuttgart Christmas Market is traditionally opened on the last Thursday in November with a ceremonial concert in the inner courtyard of the "Altes Schloss". The small wooden houses lovely decorated with angelic figures, fir branches and Christmas balls are open daily up to Dezember 23 from 10.00 a.m. to 8.30 p.m. and on Sundays from 11.00 a.m.

    Christmas-Market

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In Stuttgart is a great and beautiful Christmas-Market. When I heard the first time, that Tourists are coming with buses to see it: I ´didn't belive. But now I know why: I didn't see a Christmas-Market like this.
    It is very big.
    You can buy many hand-made Christmas stuff.
    There are many different hot-wines to drink.
    In the middle you can find an ice rink.

    The harvest festival (Canstatter Wasen/Volksfest 26.09. - 12.10.2014) is for old and young looks like the Octoberfest in Munich, but I think it is nicer than the Octoberfest in Munich.

    Stuttgart Wine Fest

    The Schwaben area is very famous for its wine - and also for the many wine festivals, which take place in the late summertime, around August/September.

    Normally this festival is thought of the harvest in Stuttgart. Now it is almost like an amusement park. Lot of food and beer. Fun for old and young.
