Killesberg Park Walk on Saturday, May 20
Dear Members and Guests,
please join us on Saturday, May 20, 2023, for a guided tour of the beautiful public
in the North of Stuttgart
Stuttgarters love their Killesbergpark (Höhenpark Killesberg) with its blooming fields, the valley of the roses, its beautiful trees and art installations. It also has been a site of numerous garden festivals since its transformation from a quarry into a park in the 1930s.
Among other attractions, like the 40 m high Killesberg Observation Tower, the park is home of the narrow-gauge Killesberg railway, where in summer visitors can go on steam (or diesel) train rides through the park.
On a guided walking tour we will hear about the history, the current use and hidden treasures of the Park. After the tour we will have an early dinner at the Höhencafe Killesberg, located next to the Observation Tower.
