Hi guys! We are back home in beautiful Stuttgart. Just about the right time as the festival season has started! This weekend you can enjoy a cool drink while listening to good music under the open sky at Marienplatzfest 2016!
For some years now, the Marienplatz is a hot spot in Stuttgart – and not only because of the temperatures during the summer months! 😉 A lot of great restaurants and bars are located in the area like Café Galao and the pizza place L.A. Signorina. To find out more about these locations check out my former posts:
Café Galao: My first dinner outside in 2013!
But on four days each year, the Marienplatz is really the place to be. And that’s when the Marienplatzfest is going on!
It has already started last Thursday but you have still today and Sunday to pay it a visit. It’s definitely worth it!
I went there on Thursday after work.
It was incredibly hot so my friend Janine and I had to have a cold drink right away! We found a stand where they gave out samples of rum on ice for free. Sweet! So that’s how we started into the evening.
Afterwards we checked the food trucks. As a vegetarian my options were a bit limited but I found a stand were they sold falafel. So that’s what I had and I have to say, it was a good decision. They tasted great.
Then we felt like cool drinks again and got two “Hugo”! Yummy!
My favorite spot by the way were the carpets on the street in front of Café Galao! You don’t get the chance very often to hang out there! 😀
Marienplatzfest offers a free program every day as well. You can listen to bands playing, mainly Indie Folk, Electro Pop, Songwriter und Tribal Hop but there are also other events going on like a slackline competition and a impro theatre for example.
