Stuttgart is not only the city of wine and of automobiles, it´s also the city of joie de vivre and of boisterous festivals.
Sometimes sporty, sometimes light-hearted, but always magical, these put the citizens of Stuttgart in a great mood at any time of the year!
A glimpse of the chock-full calendar of events of this "little metropolis" is enough to know that Swabians know how to party heartily.
The mother of all festivals in Stuttgart has been taking place since 1818 on the "Cannstatter Wasen" – the second largest beer festival in Germany.
When it´s in session, the festival square of the otherwise tranquil Bad Cannstatt becomes a funfair for 4.5 million visitors from all over the world.
These can test their ability to hold their liquor in the original beer tents, experience the ultimate kick on hair-raising rides and marvel at the grandiose musical fireworks presentation.
