Everything looked so promising: covid infections dropping, vaccination rate rising, sun shining… And then this new Delta variant of the virus came into play. I was hoping that this month’s post about fun events this July in Stuttgart might be a normal one. But nope. It will still be a Corona edition where I point out online events or things to do where the risk of catching (or spreading) the virus ist very low.
- This is something for all my American readers: On July 2 you can learn how to prepare the perfect July 4th snack at Snack-a-Vaganza on youtube. The event is organized by d.a.i Tübingen.
- On July 2 you can also check out the Tour of Hope. The live stream will bring the work of DJ Jens Herzberg, mainly House and Techno, from the rooftop terrace of Stuttgart Library directly into your living room (or where ever you might be :-)) You can follow the event here youtube.de/stadtbibliothekstuttgartyt
- Between July 14 and 18 you can join the nature film festival Natur Vision online. You can dive into a variation of topics while watching “Beauty and the Bees”, “Bikes vs. Cars” or “Chicks on Boards” to name just a few.
- Between July 21 and 25 the Indian Film Festival Stuttgart will also be celebrated online. The festival pass (18 Euro) allows you to watch current feature films, short films and documentaries from all over India for five days at home.
- Meet other English speakers around the globe virtually on July 12 at Stammtisch Transatlantik.
- The book club of DAZ (Deutsch Amerikanische Zentrum) will meet online on Zoom on July 22 in order to discuss “Night Sky with Exit Wounds” by Ocean Vuong.
But it is summer and of course we don’t want to sit at home in front of a computer all day. So: Get out there! 😀
- All the public outdoor pools of Stuttgart and the area are open now. You have to buy your ticket online in advance. In order to avoid the crowds you might consider going in the morning.
- In my last post on the blog I have pointed out 4 fun outings for families with toddlers. In this article I share my 3 favorite short walks and a highlight of Stuttgart with you.
- Any hikers here? Check out the hikes in the area of Leinfelden-Echterdingen! The city has published two hiking guide books in English which you can download free of charge: Refreshing Walks and Idyllic Recreation at Siebenmühlental. Don’t be astonished when you check out the cover of the first guide book and think the lady on the picture looks familiar – I am the co-author 🙂
- Another great hiking trail is Herzog-Jäger-Pfad at Waldenbuch. You find a virtual map here.
Have a great July in Stuttgart (or anywhere in the world :-)) and stay safe and healthy!
