Stuttgart Summer Festival
The Summer Festival is Stuttgart's most elegant open-air party. For four days in August, the Schlossplatz and the shores of the Eckensee lake in the Obere Schlossgarten park are given over to enormous white marquees erected for the enjoyment and relaxation of visitors and residents. Around half a million visitors every year come to enjoy the Festival's unique summer atmosphere.
Held for the first time in 1991 to mark the end of the European Cycling Championships, the Stuttgart Summer Festival has now become an established feature of Stuttgart's cultural and events calendar. A widely varied program of different music and entertainment acts on five stages puts everyone in a good mood and provides the perfect backdrop for unforgettable summer evenings. Visitors are treated to expertly prepared local culinary delicacies and choice beverages.
Dates in 2012: 2 to 5 august
