in Stuttgart-Bad Cannstatt

The Streetcar Museum takes us on a journey through the history of public transportation by street cars in Stuttgart from its beginnings to present time.
After our tours, we’ll have a sekt reception and lunch at their local bistro, after which we’ll enjoy a private tour on the U23 Oldtimer Streetcar that brings us directly from the Museum on a panoramic route up to the platform “Ruhbank” and back to the museum.

Timetable:
10:30 – 11:00 Meet at the Streetcar Museum (Straßenbahnmuseum) [ directions >> ]
11:00 – 12:00 Guided Tours Streetcar Museum – one English tour / one German tour
12:00 – 14:00 Lunch – Sekt Aperitif (the Club pays for the Sekt), Maultaschen with potato salad (vegetarian Maultaschen available on preorder)
14:00 – 16:00 Panorama loop Tour with the U23 Oldtimer Streetcar (Museum – Ruhbank – Museum, the U23 stops at “Ruhbank” for a 15 min break, there will be no other stops).
Please let us know your choice of Maultaschen (regular or vegetarian) with your reservation.

The cost is 7,50 € per portion. The small bistro inside the Museum is run by their Club and therefore can only offer basic meals on a limited menu. Beverages (beer, wine, mineral water, soft drinks, tea, coffee) are served as well at a small price. Please pay your meal and drinks individually; the Sekt served after the tours before lunch is covered by the Club.

Cost: 30 € members; 40 € non-members – this includes entry and guided tours in the museum, the Oldtimer panoramic tour and tips. We ask for upfront payment; payment instructions will be sent upon registration.

Best regards,

Signatures
