Stuttgart Events & Festivals
19 Jul 2024 - 24 Jul 2024
The SWR Sommerfestival takes place every year on the weekend that includes the holiday Whit Monday, generally in Stuttgart’s Schlossplatz. SWR, or Sudwest Rundfunk, is the public broadcasting company for Baden-Württemberg and Rhineland-Palatinate. They began the festival in 2009 as a celebration of their various media programs.
The SWR Summer Festival thus includes a wide variety of programs, including special offerings for families with kids. You can visit stands that give you the chance to get to try your hand at presenting the news and reading from a teleprompter, get to know the offerings in the online SWR “Mediathek” or media library, or play a game based on the famous “Tatort” police procedural show. There are several live performances, including musicians and comedy acts. The full program and tickets are available on the SWR website.
