The Weissenhof Estate in Stuttgart (Weissenhofsiedlung and the Weissenhofmuseum im Haus Le Corbusier) is a unique look into the forward-thinking architectural and design minds of the late-1920s.

WeissenhofsiedlungThis distinctive residential building exhibition known as “Neues Bauen” (or ‘new build’) reflected the societal and cultural changes of the early 20th century.

The semi-detached homes designed by Le Corbusier  and built in 1927 are aesthetic, social and technical examples of the ever-changing architectural attitudes of the time. Following extensive restoration of the interiors, the façades, and the grounds, the structure is now open to visitors. The homes are considered to be part of the Bauhaus school of architecture, celebrating its 100th anniversary this year.

Please join member Lene B. for a 90-minute tour through the grounds and the museum on Tuesday, May 7th. We will meet at 10:45 and start the tour  promptly at 11:00. Participants will be asked to store ALL bags and purses in lockers at the museum.

Members + Families Event: Alpaca Walk and Farm Tour

Members + Families Event: Alpaca Walk and Farm Tour

Alpaca Walk and Farm Tour (English)
For members and their families

Saturday, 18th May 2019 starting at 9:45
Location: Alpakafarm Schaber, Hochen 4, 72622 Nürtingen-Neckarhausen 
€35 adults / €10 children 6 and up / children under 6 free
Pre-payment deadline May 8th
Your host: member Claire DeVaney

Since they were domesticated like their llama cousins around 5000 years ago, alpacas have been kept for their meat, wool, and as a super pack animal ideal for mountain treks. They can walk long distances on relatively little subsistence; they’re sure-footed and agile; and they’re super fluffy and cute!!

Alpacas are whimsical members of the camel family with lovely kind eyes and a gentle nature. In recent years their wooly faces and observant, calm demeanor has made them highly sought after walking companions.

We’ve organized an amazing day out with these gentle beasts for members and their families in May. It includes an alpaca-accompanied trek in Nürtingen followed by a tour of the farm with plenty of petting allowed. The gentle trek will last around 1 hour and will take in views over the Schwäbische Alb from Göppingen over Kirchheim to Reutlingen.

During the guided tour we will see the farm and furnished with all the knowledge we could ever need about alpaca care, diet and breeding as well as the fascinating role of alpacas today from therapy animals to wool production. As a parting gift, all adults will go home with a pair of alpaca wool socks!

You’re then invited to join us for lunch in Nürtingen if you wish (not included in cost of the tour).

Practical Information
9:45 Arrival and registration – please be punctual
10:00 Trek begins
11:00 Return and begin farm tour
12:00 Tour ends
12:30 Lunch in Nürtingen

There is a Hofladen on-site but best to bring water and perhaps a snack. We will walk in any weather. With any luck we’ll have sunshine but of course be prepared with weather-appropriate clothing such as a rain jacket, waterproof shoes, and so on.

The farm is best reached by car (or take a taxi from the Nürtigen station). If you would like to attend but don’t have access to a car, be sure to post in the Facebook event and we can try to arrange a car pool!

Your cost for this event will be €35 per adult and €10 for each child age 6 and up. Children under 6 are free! To reserve your spot, please RSVP in the pending Facebook event or use the contact form below if you are not on Facebook.

To confirm your reservation, please transfer the  €35/€10 per person to the IWCS bank account no later than May 8th. If you have any extenuating circumstances that keep you from getting the funds to us by that date, please speak directly with the host so we don’t assume you are no longer interested.

Our favorite outdoor explorers, Abenteuerreich in Remstal, will be taking us on a guided walk this spring through the meadows and woods around Schorndorf to learn how to distinguish between poisonous and non-poisonous local plants and collect a goodly amount of the non-poisonous variety. At the end we will make a pesto from what we’ve collected to eat at an outdoor picnic.

Although we will be greeted in English, most of this tour will be in German, so be prepared to work your brains, learn some new vocabulary, and have your kids or fellow members translate if necessary (we did this on last year’s tour and there was no problem understanding at all!). Bring along worn-in walking shoes/boots, a waterproof jacket, a camera, a penknife, a small basket or other container, and a notebook and pen. We’ll find out the exact meeting place nearer the time.

Current IWCS members and their entire family are welcome to join this event and costs will be partially subsidized by the club. Children (up to age 13) are free and two adults or teenagers are invited to attend at the discount price of €25 per person.
