Location: Gasthaus Waldhorn, Krehlstr. 111, 70565 Stuttgart-Rohr
Nearest station: Stuttgart Rohr (S-Bahn)
Members +1 guest are welcome, maximum 14 participants
RSVP deadline November 5th

Do you know the story of St. Martin and the geese? When he was elected bishop in the 4th century,  St. Martin’s modesty didn’t allow him to accept the position so he hid in a stable full of geese. But the birds were making so much noise that he was found and was ordained despite his attempt to avoid it. This legend forms the basis of the traditional goose dinner on St. Martin’s Day in Germany, Austria and other European countries (the actual date is on November 11th).

On November 7th we will celebrate St. Martin’s Day together with a traditional menu consisting of:

  • leg and breast of goose
  • two kinds of traditional German dumplings (Semmelknödel and Kartoffelklöße)
  • red cabbage
  • and a roast apple (Bratapfel)

If you still have room for a dessert it can be ordered a la Carte.

This is a +1 event, which means:

  • Any IWCS member plus one guest are welcome to attend
  • Your +1 can be a partner, spouse, adult child, or friend
  • You and your guest each pay the cost listed below

The price of this menu is €31,50 per person (drinks not included). The club will sponsor table water for everyone. Please be advised that this restaurant only accepts cash, so please bring plenty with you!!

After RSVPing and confirming with Sandra that there is space available, you will be asked to prepay your portion of the train ticket (amount to be determined once we know how many are going). In case of a last-minute cancellation, you are welcome to find another member to take your place.

Each guest will be responsible for their own food and drinks at the festival. Right now we have a lunch reservation for 10 people but can increase that up to a maximum of 15.
