  • The Cannstatter Volksfest, the Stuttgart version of the Oktoberfest (and of course the muuuuch better event :-)) is on until October 9. Get thrilled in one of the fun rides, dance on a table in a beer tent and have ferry floss, Magenbrot or  a bag of roasted almonds.Things to do in October: Cannstatter VolksfestPhoto credit: in.Stuttgart / Thomas Niedermueller
  • Also still on in October is the Pumpkin Festival in Ludwigsburg! This is such a fun event. Thousands of pumpkins are on display. This year`s theme: Welcome to the Circus! But you don’t only have to look at the pumpkins, there are a lot of food stands as well – even a gourmet one! 🙂 If you want to know more about this event, check out my friend Meredith’s post Ludwigsburg Pumpkin Festival 2016!Pumpkin Fair Photo credit: credit:
  • On October 2 you and your family can look behind the scenes of the Wilhelma, the zoo and botanical gardens of Stuttgart. At Wilhelmatag you can go backstage, hear fun stories about the animals and exotic plants and a rich entertainment program awaits you. Kids pay 8 Euro entrance fee, adults 16. There is a family ticket for 40 Euro as well.
  • When the days get shorter and the nights darker, I love to go to the theater again. Have you heard of NEAT, the new english american theater company? This October, they perform several times at Theater am Olgaeck: On October 10 and 13 you can see Dracula and on October 27 Animal Farm.
  • The first Burlesque Festival of Stuttgart is on at Keller Club on October 7. Twelve performers from all over Europe participate in the contest. Sounds like a lot of fun!
