As summer turns to fall and days gradually turn shorter and colder, community members can continue to find opportunities to explore locally and engage in their interests.
The “Feuerwehr-Museum,” or fire fighter museum, in Stuttgart-Münster offers a chance to experience all there is to know about the Stuttgart Fire Department.
The “StuttCard” card is a combination transit and visitor pass. The card is available as a 24, 48, or 72-hour ticket and valid throughout the entire “Verkehrs-und Tarifverbund” (VVS) public transportation system. The card covers admission in to all museums and many leisure facilities as well as reduced entrance fees.
