MEMBERS ONLY YULE IN JULY DINNER & GIFT EXCHANGE

YULE IN JULY “Holiday” Dinner & Gift Exchange
For members only
Friday, July 15th starting at 19:00
Location: The Ratskeller Restaurant, Marktpl. 1, 70173 Stuttgart (cellar of Rathaus)
Prepayment & menu information to follow

The IWC Stuttgart Steering Committee cordially invites all members to a very special evening on Friday, July 15th!

We have sorely missed our annual holiday dinner the last two years and since we can’t be 100% sure it won’t be cancelled again this year, we have planned a mid-year version of this much-loved event.

This year’s dinner is being planned at the brand-new Ratskeller Restaurant in the basement of the Stuttgart Rathaus. We have a private room reserved just for us and and are working on a dinner menu with them now.

We will start our evening with a complimentary glass of Sekt at 18:30 and move on to dinner at 19:00. After dinner, all members are invited to take part in our optional gift exchange, which is loads of fun every year. More details to follow!

As soon as we have settled on the menus for the evening, we will ask you to choose and prepay for your food. We have requested a price of around €30 per person, with a meat and a veggie option, plus appetizer and dessert.

In the meantime, please RSVP in the private Facebook event to get your name on the guest list. If you don’t have Facebook, please let Emily know you are interested by sending an email to info (at) iwcstuttgart.org 💌

Looking forward to celebrating together!

MEMBERS ONLY: TOUR OF BEBENHAUSEN MONASTERY AND PALACE (+1 Event)

Sunday, June 5th at 14:00
Location: Im Schloß, 72074 Tübingen
Nearest station: Tübingen + bus
For members +1 guest
Host: Alex Elwin
Prepayment deadline: Friday, June 3rd

Completely befitting a state holiday with its roots in Catholicism, Alex has arranged a wonderful tour of the monastery at Bebenhausen for us on Pfingstsonntag (Pentacostal Sunday), the 5th of June.

This English-language tour will last 90 minutes and includes a tour of the Bebenhausen Palace, which is also on the grounds of the complex.

The monastery was established in the late 12th century and its fortunes grew rapidly until it became one of the richest monasteries in southern Germany. It also became a residence of the House of Württemberg as a hunting retreat and Württemberg’s first king (Frederick I) turned the south-eastern portion of the complex into a palace. After World War I, and the dissolution of the Kingdom of Württemberg, Bebenhausen Palace became the permanent residence of Württemberg’s last King and Queen, Wilhelm II and Charlotte.

We will meet at 14:00 in front of the main entrance to the monastery and the tour will start promptly at 14:15. A walk in the nearby forest to see (penned up) wild boar is possible beforehand and Alex is looking into coffee and cake in the village afterwards – let her know if you would be interested in either of these options.

WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT THE LOCATION

Medical masks are still required in the palace, but optional in the monastery. Alex can give advice about where to park.

Neither strollers nor wheelchairs are allowed inside of the palace and the monastery has two steps and a couple of rooms that are not barrier free. A maximum of 20 people can attend, so see below to RSVP as soon as possible.

THIS IS A +1 EVENT, WHICH MEANS:

  • Your +1 can be a spouse, partner, friend or child
