Celtic Exhibit, Saturday, January 26, 2013

Dear Members and Guests,

Please join us for the first program in our 65th anniversary year as we visit the featured exhibition of the state of Baden-Württemberg for 2012-2013,

The World of the Celts
Treasures of Celtic Art and Artistry

Saturday, January 26, 2013
at the
Baden-Württemberg State Museum: Altes Schloss
(Old Castle: Downtown Stuttgart, Schillerplatz)

We will meet at 14:30 in the courtyard of the Old Castle. Instead of a group guided tour, we will view the exhibition armed with an audio guide. The audio guides and exhibit explanations are in German and English, so everyone can go through at their own pace and concentrate on what interests them. Cost for the exhibition , including entrance and audio guide, will be €12 for members and €15 for guests. We will collect the money at the meeting point, and a club representative will purchase the tickets and audio guides for the group.

This is a world class exhibition, with objects drawn from all over Europe, including recently excavated objects never before shown. Take this opportunity to enter the world of the Celts and marvel at what their culture produced. TIP: The exhibition is actually in two parts. The other part, Centers of Celtic Power, showing the history and evolution of Celtic culture, is in the Art Building (Kunstgebäude) on the other side of the New Castle. We won't have time to see the other part on Saturday, but save your entrance ticket. It is good for entry to the other part of the exhibition even on another day. The exhibition runs until February 17.

Following our visit, we will gather again in the museum courtyard around 16:30 , and walk together across the Schlossplatz to the Schönbuch Brauhaus, Bolzstrasse 10 , at the corner of the Stefanstrasse, 70173 Stuttgart (See map >>).
There we will enjoy fresh beer on tap, and an a la carte dinner with main entrees ranging from €8 to €18, along with soups, salads, and smaller courses, while we discuss the beautiful things we have seen, and swap other tall tales!
