MEMBERS ONLY: Family Halloween at Nymphaea Animal Park

The IWCS Mother’s Corner invites all club members and their families to join us on Halloween weekend (Saturday, October 30th) for a walk through the Nymphaea Animal Park together!

We will let the kids have a taste of Halloween while enjoying feeding the animals at the park (costumes optional but encouraged!). Afterwards we can sit in the attached Biergarten as weather allows and visit while the children use the playground. We will meet up at the entrance at 15:00 to buy our tickets.

Each family will be responsible for their own entrance cost (see below) **BUT VERY IMPORTANT** we must make reservations in advance for the exact number of people due to park regulations that limit the number of visitors. The RSVP deadline for this event is October 15th, so please let Rebecca know before then how many people in your family will be attending so she can reserve enough spots for our entrance time.

Entrance costs are payable on the day of the event at the entrance. Adult tickets are €3, kids 7-17 are €1 and 6 and under are free.

Current Covid-19 regulations – Masks for ages 6+ are required at the entrance and inside the enclosed animal houses/aviaries (no 3G required at this time). The playground is currently open and feeding the animals is also allowed.

To RSVP, please respond in the private Facebook event or use the contact form below if you are not on Facebook.

Upcoming 2018 Holiday Events SAVE THE DATES

sunset-1906999_1920

Now that we’ve transitioned from our long, hot summer into the chillier autumn, our Activities Planning team has come up with a list of fun holiday events that we would love to see all your smiling faces at!!

We are starting off in October with a Halloween Party for the Mother’s Corner Group. Members with little ones are welcome to join Laura and Mimi for a fun day at the pumpkin festival at Schloss Ludwigsburg on the 28th.

In November we have two amazing specialty dinners planned for you. The first is a North American-style Thanksgiving dinner in member Rachael B’s home for the whole family on the 25th. Then members and one adult guest are also invited to a traditional Goose dinner at a local restaurant for St. Martin’s Day on the 29th.

Whether you prefer turkey or goose, German or North American traditions, members are welcome to join either or both! Space is limited, so RSVP early. If neither appeals to you, we will still be hosting our regular monthly dinner in November as always.

In December we will again be celebrating our annual Christmas dinner and gift exchange, happening on the 11th at The Stäffele in Stuttgart-West. This dinner will take the place of our regular monthly dinner and is for members only. The gift exchange is hilarious and one of the highlights of the year! More details about the menu should be available next month.

Other holiday-themed events being planned include the Frauen helfen Frauen Virtual Giving Tree during Advent time, a Christmas party for Mother’s Corner on December 13th, and our annual Cookie Exchange at Sandra B’s home on December 9th.

Put these dates in your calendars now to make sure you save room for some club activities this holiday season!

Ghost walk

The exciting nighttime walking tour will lead us from the Old Palace, through the Market Hall, to the Collegiate Church and will delve into eerie encounters with spooky monks, a headless horseman, and two shadowy figures…who some say still can be seen at dawn. You will also learn about the chequered history of a former monastery, why there are tram tracks in the market hall, where decapitations took place, which customs prevailed in old times in cemeteries – and much more.

Please note that this is an easy walk around Stuttgart, which means it is wheelchair and pram friendly. We will end up near the Leonhardskirche at the edge of the Bohnenviertal. More information can be found at the Stuttgart Geister website.
