Hi guys! November in Stuttgart is packed with a lot of fun events. My personal highlights are related to improvisational theater, the Italian language and Christmas markets!
- If you haven’t had the time yet to visit the amazing Pumpkin Festival in Ludwigsburg, you still got the chance to do so until November 6, at the Blühendes Barock in Ludwigsburg. It’s really something you want to see.

- You love theater but don’t want to watch a play in German? The New American Theater (NEAT) will perform Animal Farm by George Orwell on November 3, 9, 10 and 17 at Theater am Olgaeck in English.
- Bring your broken stuff to the 15th Repair-Cafe at Ekiz in Stuttgart-West on November 5.
- Weather-Alert: There will be some purple rain over Stuttgart on November 5 because of the Prince Tribute Night at Tatti Bar! 😉
- It all started somewhere in the NY subway system with a video of some street musicians that went viral. Now, the Lucky Chops are the hottest Brass Band the Big Apple has to offer. But you don’t have to buy an expensive plane ticket to listen to them. They will perform at Im Wizemann on November 7. Tickets are still available!
- You want more theater? There you go: On November 7 you can watch the new piece by Stuttgart based, American Playwright Michael Hilton: Light below us. Observe some colorful characters who regularly meet in the neighborhood Deli “Barnacles Delicatessen” in Central New Jersey.
- On November 8, the first Stuttgart Language Exchange will take place. It starts at 7 pm at The Paris. The basic principle is that there are several tables and at each table one pair of languages is spoken: German-English, German-Spanish, German-French, German-Italian, German-Portuguese, German-Russian, German-Arabic, German-Turkish. If you want to meet new people and work on your language skills, that’s your event!
- You love improvisational theater but it’s too hard for you to listen to it in German? Then save November 11 and come to Merlin at 8:30 pm! The two Canadian impro experts Steve Jarand and Amy Shostak will perform together with the team from Improtheater Stuttgart in English.
- Stuttgart will become a bit more Italian: On November 12, the theater Dreigroschentheater shows short sketches in Italian and German and on November 13, 16 and 20, you can enjoy Don Giovanni in Italian with German subtitles at Oper Stuttgart.
- You can visit two interesting fairs under one roof at Messe Stuttgart from November 18 to 20: Veggi & frei (veggi and free) is a platform for vegetarian and vegan products and services and eat&STYLE is a food festival that offers hands-on experiences, workshops and yummy samples.
- Christmas is just around the corner. And you know that it is when all the beautiful Christmas markets are opening again! On November 22, the medieval Christmas Market in Esslingen AND the baroque Christmas market in Ludwigsburg are opening their gates. And on November 23, the huge Christmas market in Stuttgart will follow. Don’t even challenge yourself with the question, which one is more worth seeing. Visit all of them!
- A sweet, little and very colourful pear amongst the trade fairs in Stuttgart is DEKUMO. The name consists of the first letters of the words Design (design), Kunst (art), Mode (fashion) and it is the perfect place to shop for creative and lovely gifts.
- I know, Halloween is over. But the exhibition Körperwelten (Body Worlds) is a bit spooky, too. From November 30 on, you can have a closer look at preserved human bodies and body parts at Schleyer-Halle. I have visited this exhibition 10 years ago and I was somewhat irritated and fascinated at the same time. You see the human body like you’ve never seen it before. That’s fascinating. But you know that what you’re looking at are real skinned human body parts. That’s VERY irritating! Well, Körperwelten is definitely a one of the kind experience.
As usual, this is only a small selection out of all the great thingsyou can do this November in Stuttgart. If you think I missed something, let me know in the comment section! 🙂
