Join us in September for a two-hour guided tour of the famous Stuttgart Markthalle! Everyday goods from all around the world are offered here – the Stuttgarters love their market and come here to shop, to meet up with each other, to gossip or to enjoy the fantastic gastronomy. During this tour we will be doing some tasting and taking a peek into the cellar.

Stuttgart’s indoor market with its modern style, its reinforced concrete beams and its glass ceiling has long been named a protected heritage site. However, the indoor market is as vibrant as never before, celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2014.

We will meet on Sporerstraße, in front of the entrance to the store Merz und Benzing. Due to the cramped and uneven passages of the building, this tour is not suitable for buggies or wheelchairs.

The IWCS will be covering the cost of the tour guide. Members are asked to prepay €15 to cover the tastings and a small donation for the Frauenhaus.

To start the reservation process, please RSVP in the pending Facebook event or use the form below to contact the activities team if you are not on Facebook. This event has limited space (maximum 15) so RSVP early to save your spot!

Please complete your reservation by transferring your prepayment no later than September 10th. 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.

Prepayments are non-refundable after the payment deadline. Members who have to cancel at the last minute are welcome to find another member or guest to send in their place.

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. Please note that this historical site is unfortunately not disability friendly (no wheelchair or stroller access).

The member cost for this event is €10, to be paid in advance. The International Women’s Club Stuttgart will be subsidizing the remainder of the fees for the tour.
