After this golden days in October fall has finally arrived. But it brings us lots of fairs, cultural highlights and even the beginning of the Christmas Markets! Check out my favorite events this November in Stuttgart:
- Celebrate Dia de los Muertos, the Mexican “Day of the Dead” on November 1 at Linden-Museum with live music and special workshops for kids.
- If you like French movies you will love the French Movie Days. They are on between November 1 and 8. The movies will be shown in various locations in Stuttgart and Tübingen.
- You haven’t visited the Pumpkin Festival in Ludwigburg yet? You can still do so until November 5! Don’t miss this fun, pumpkin-themed event.
- A legendary circus is back in Stuttgart until November 12: Circus Krone. Great artists, wild animals and fun clowns will put a spell on you and your kids.
- Shop for international arts and crafts at Markt der Völker (Market of the Nations) from November 1 to 5. Next to great (Christmas?!) gifts you can enjoy live music and food from all around the globe.
- How about enjoying a Full-Moon-Concert inside THE landmark of Stuttgart, the TV-Tower? You can do so on November 3 and 4.
- Halloween is over but you can’t get enough of spooky things? Then you should join the Ghostwalk through the city center on November 3. The tour will be held in English and you will learn about spooky monks, headless horsemen and shadowy figures, who still can be seen at dawn in Stuttgart. Creepy fun for the whole family!
- How about a fun night at Staatsgalerie Stuttgart on November 4? You think a visit to a museum can’t be fun?? Well, the Young Night “Pop in , Freak Art” will tell you otherwise. Short tours, performances, DJ-liveacts and yummy snacks and drinks await you!
- Fall is the time when going to the theater get’s interesting again. If you feel the same way, you might want to check out the new production of NEAT, the New English American Theater. They will perform the story of the genius Einstein on November 6 and 9.
- Have you heard of the project Up with people? Their mission is to empower young people to be positive agents of change for a more hopeful, trusting and peaceful world through music and action. The stars of the musical show are on a gap year, travel the world, perform in many different places and cultures and stay with host families. Sounds like a very interesting and fun project. You can see their show The Journey from November 6 to 13 at Liederhalle.
- All women who want to improve their German language skills are invited to join the Frauen-Lesekreis (Women Reading Circle) at the library in Feuerbach. The group reads stories together and discusses the content afterwards. Their next meeting is on November 11.
- Shop for creative things and maybe even Christmas gifts at the fair Deine Eigenart at Im Wizemann on November 11.
- Music-enthusiasts listen up: The New Fall Festival is in Stuttgart from November 15 to 19. Various locations, like Liederhalle and Carl-Benz-Arena but also Neues Schloss and Straßenbahnwelt will host events. The goal is to give pop culture a special framework.
- Another shopping opportunity: at St. Cathereine’s Bazar on November 18. you will find little things like Christmas items and books from the UK and USA.
