Join member Katja Zajac for a day in the countryside at the open air museum in Beuren! This recreated historical village tells the story of life in the nearby Swabian Alps with twenty different buildings, including farms, houses, workshops, and a bakery.

Children will love the many animals who live in the village (chicken, rabbits, goats, and sheep) and there is even an old-fashioned corner store with candy and sweets to buy.

We will have a one-hour English-language tour explaining the history of the houses and their inhabitants, life on the Swabian Alb as a farmer, and what a typical childhood was like in the area long ago.

Afterwards we will make a reservation for lunch at the museum restaurant (optional) and then you are free to spend the rest of the day exploring the museum grounds which include a playground and an orchard. The grounds are wheelchair and stroller friendly and open until 18:00. Please let Katja know if you are interested in lunch at the Engelberg restaurant at 12:30!

Audio guides in English are available for the permanent exhibition and wagons are available to borrow (20 euro deposit). We are welcome to bring along our own food and drink, or even a picnic lunch for those not joining us at the restaurant.

All members of your immediate family are invited to come along! The tour guide and museum entrance will be sponsored by the IWCS, but we are requesting pre-paid donations of €10 per family or €5 for an individual to reserve your space (maximum 25 participants total). All donations will be included in our annual donation to the Frauenhaus.

To reserve your spot, please RSVP in the Facebook event being set up in the members group or use the form below if you are not on Facebook. To confirm your reservation, please transfer the your family’s donation to the IWCS bank account no later than October 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 (we will be charged by the tour company after that date). Members who have to cancel at the last minute are welcome to find another member or guest to send in their place.

Bring a picnic with you or wait and slake your thirst at the Bootshaus Biergarten (Greek/German) on the banks of the Neckar once we reach Marbach, where you can let the children stretch their legs at the playground there.

For all you culture buffs out there, the Schiller museum is also located in nearby in the Marbach city center, so anyone interested could also take this opportunity to visit it. We will be returning to Stuttgart via S-Bahn.
