Weekend / Wochenende in Stuttgart

At the end of March I visited my sister in Stuttgart. Here are a few impressions of the long weekend.
Ende März habe ich meine Schwester in Stuttgart besucht. Hier sind ein paar Eindrücke von dem verlängerten Wochenende.

In the market hall I bought candied violets and gin.

Then I met a friend (and collector) for lunch, which was wonderful because we hadn’t seen each other for several years, so we had much to talk about.

Then we went to see the Patrick Angus exhibition “Private Show”.

I have to say that it was strange to be thrown back into the 80s like this. Some things / themes seemed almost unreal – so very far away. We both loved his cityscapes and his hommage to Picasso.

I had some time to go for a stroll around the rest of the museum later. I really liked some of the art displayed, but was also very distracted by the interesting architecture.

Some Stuttgart impressions.

My sister and I did a short hike through a beautiful forest and visited Schloss (castle) Solitude. Very pretty sight – and an absolutely stunning view over Stuttgart to Ludwigsburg.
We also discovered a tiny cemetery where quite famous people were buried: von Weizsäcker family, John Cranko, Robert Bosch…

We also took the famous “Zacke” (rack railway) to the tv tower on the hill and the forest there. Very pretty views.

Are you thinking about bringing home a painting of your favourite place as a souvenir or giving it as a gift? Check this journal – or check this Pinterest board! There you can find many more of the locations I have visited.

And if you are interested in a Stuttgart painting (or a painting of another place in Germany), send me an email!
