The Fans Tour starts with a short film portrait of the greatest sports venue in Baden-Württemberg, their history, and their conversion into a pure football arena. You will look behind the scenes of the Mercedes-Benz Arena and gain exclusive insights as you learn the jobs of the media on game days and what goes on in the press conference room, media room and mixed zone.

167. Cannstatter Volksfest on Saturday, September 29

Dear members and friends,

Please join us on Saturday, September 28 for a joyful visit and celebration at the

168. Cannstatter Volksfest - aka Cannstatt Beer Festival

© www.cannstatter-volksfest.de
© www.cannstatter-volksfest.de

Stuttgarters together with millions of guests celebrate one of the most beautiful and largest beer festivals and fairs in the world.

Since last year there is a new policy for Saturdays and before a public Holiday: two shifts are sold. Last year we took the evening shift and it was not a good experience. This year we booked the day shift which lasts from 11a.m. until 17:15p.m., last beer is served by 16:45p.m. 17:15 we have to leave our tables.

Our Club reserved table number 72 in the "Dinkelacker" Tent. We meet at 11:00 o'clock at the above-mentioned fruit column, it is a popular meeting point in front of most of the tents. We have no experience so far how full the tents will be on a Saturday at 11 a.m. and how strict the door policy will be at that time, our guess is that people want to use their limited time in the tent. Therefore we ask you to be on time.

There is a mandatory consumption on the weekends of 3 beverages (1 liter of beer per voucher or any other beverage) and 1 meal per person (half chicken or any other food). Which totals to 35 € including a wrist band that allows you in and out of the tent. After registration and confirmation by Christel Baumann, we ask you to transfer the amount of 35 € to our Club's bank account, the money must have arrived by September 23, you'll receive the bank information after your registration. Your vouchers for beverages and food incl. wrist band will be handed to you at the meeting point.

Important information - Please note: There is a mandatory minimum charge for the waiters: 60 cents per beverage and 70 cents per food order. This is their salary. Everything above the 60/70 cents is tip. So please support your waiters. If you do not use all your beer vouchers you can still use them another day at the Volksfest this year or at next year's Cannstatter Volksfest.

We have 20 seats to sell, first come first serve, members have priority. No-shows will not be refunded.
