Marbach & Neckar river cruise on Saturday, 19 May 2018

Dear members and friends,

Please join us for a day trip to the fascinating small town of
Marbach, including a return trip from Marbach to Stuttgart on a Neckar river cruise ship
on Saturday, May 19, 2018

Marbach is a lovely town on the Neckar north of Stuttgart surrounded by the original town wall and containing many half-timbered houses and narrow streets which give it a real medieval flair. Marbach is also Friedrich Schiller's birthplace and home of the Schiller Museum and the German Literature Archive, as well as being the birthplace of Tobias Mayer (b. 1723) who devised a quadrant used to measure the position of celestial bodies with high accuracy.

We will meet at 09.15 hours at the Stuttgart Hauptbahnhof S-Bahn station underneath the Arnulf Klett Platz. From there we will ride the S-Bahn to Marbach. In front of the Marbach station we will look at a statue of Tobias Mayer's Quadrant and then move on to Schiller's birthplace, where we will be met by our tour guide for an English language tour through old Marbach. After the tour we will enjoy lunch at a riverside Beer Garden restaurant (a la carte) before boarding our ship for a leisurely cruise back to Stuttgart through locks and along lovely vineyards. You won't want to miss this delightful outing!
