Stuttgart Air Raid Bunker Tour - on Saturday, August 21, 2010

Dear members and friends,

For our next event we will delve into the underworld of Stuttgart's bunker systems and visit two bunkers, one dating from the Second World War, the other from the Cold War period. An additional highlight is the museum exhibit "The War Is Over"

This exhibit features camouflage, anti-aircraft technology and photographs of aircrews shot down over Stuttgart, as well as parts of aircraft wrecks.

We will meet Saturday, August 21st 2010 outside the Stuttgart-Feuerbach S-Bahn station at 15:00. The tours last approximately 2 hours. It is best to come by public transportation. If driving, the B- 295 "Steiermärker Strasse" from the B-27 the meeting place on the Wiener Platz is to the left just after the railroad underpass.
Please see map >>.

It is recommended to wear sturdy shoes and perhaps bring a sweater, since it can be cool in the bunkers.

After the tour, we will walk about 500 meters to the Wichtel Microbrewery (Stuttgarter Strasse 21, 70469 Stuttgart. www.wichtel.de), for an ala carte meal.

The menu ranges from Wichtelkuchen, a type of pizza, salads, schnitzels, all at reasonable prices with freshly brewed beer from their own brewery.

Please make reservations by Sunday August 15th, 2010, with


Best regards,
