Kulturwasen in Stuttgart
...how to enjoy cinema, theatre, opera and more during Corona Times in Stuttgart.
The Festival Event of this Summer 2020 in Stuttgart!!!
From the 28th of May the Cannstatter Wasen (the area where we used to go for the Frühlingsfest/Beerfestival)will become a gigantic cultural arena. Not to go by foot but by car!
Up to 1000 cars can park in front of a 240 m² screen and a stage. This is the place to be in Stuttgart for cinema screenings and live performances. Its name is “Kulturwasen”.
"There has never been an event of this size constellation," says Christian Doll, Managing Director of the concert agency C2 Concerts, which launched the Kulturwasen together with Chimperator and the Arthaus Filmtheater.
The Kulturwasen kicks off on 28 May with a cinema week. A special feature: you can choose between the German and the original language in the car on two channels.
On June, the 5th the concert sessions start with Tim Bendzko. In the weeks to follow there will be bands like Revolverheld (June the 12th ), and other German bands and comedians.
The opera of Stuttgart (Staatsoper) will present a program and many other events and films are planned. When the travel regulations loosen more also international artists will come.
"Culture is a part of our life and also a quality of life for all of us," says Doll. "We hope that the format will be well received here in Stuttgart."
The event will take place until the end of August. This means at least 95 days full of events with around 125 cinema screenings and 45 to 50 live performances. The organizers expect about 250,000 visitors by the end of August. The current program as well as tickets are available at https://www.kulturwasen.de. Food packages can be pre-ordered, popcorn is available for the movies, but even home-brought food is allowed.
Stuttgart has got a Festival Summer this year, even with Corona!!!! What great news!!!
Let’s go…and have fun!

Here some of the FAQs from the website translated into English:
WHERE CAN I BUY MY TICKETS?
You can only buy tickets online at Kulturwasen.de, Easyticket.de and Kinoheld.de. There will be no box office on site. Please have your ticket ready at the check-in and show it when the car window is closed. The ticket will be scanned from outside and checked for validity.
ARE THERE SNACKS AND DRINKS TO BUY?
Yes, but you have to order them in advance and they will be given to you at the entrance to the site.
CAN I BRING MY OWN FOOD AND DRINKS?
You can bring your own food and drinks. Please do not dispose of your rubbish on site, but take it back with you and dispose of it at home.
HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE ALLOWED IN ONE CAR?
Basically two people are allowed in the car. At some events, up to three additional children from the same household may also sit in the car. You can see at the ticket shop at which events this is the case. We would like to point out that the view from the back seat to the screen/stage can be very limited depending on the car model. Please also note the FSK restrictions of the films/events. If the age rating is not observed, we must refuse admission.
HOW DO I GET TO THE EVENT SITE?
You can reach the event site via the access road Talstraße or via the entrance Benzstraße through the new tunnel. Please follow the instructions of the traffic guidance system and follow the instructions of the security staff and the parking lot attendants.
ARE THERE TOILETS ON SITE?
Yes, there will be toilets on the premises, which will also be cleaned and disinfected regularly. Please note: You are only allowed to leave the car with mouth protection.
MAY I LEAVE THE VEHICLE?
No. You may only leave the vehicle to go to the toilets. Only one person is allowed to leave the car. Exceptions to this rule are parents who have to accompany children or persons with disabilities who need assistance. A mask must always be worn when leaving the car. In addition, the valid distance regulations in public areas with a minimum distance of 1.5 metres to other people must be observed. Due to the regulations, the window panes must also be kept at least 80% closed.
WITH WHICH CARS CAN I COME TO KULTURWASEN?
For technical and organisational reasons, cars with a height of more than 2.10 metres are not permitted. Nevertheless, cars will be arranged on the grounds according to their size so that visibility is not obstructed as much as possible. Convertibles are only allowed with the top closed.
HOW DOES THE SOUND TRANSMISSION WORK? MUST MY CAR MEET TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS?
The sound of the event will be played on your own car radio via FM frequency. FM/FM reception must therefore be available. Alternatively, you can bring a portable FM radio with you. So it is best to familiarize yourself with the technical settings in your car in advance. You will be informed about the corresponding frequency on site.
DO I HAVE TO SWITCH OFF MY LIGHTS DURING THE EVENT?
Yes. At least the daytime running lights must be switched off during the event. It is therefore best to familiarise yourself with your standby settings in advance. Modern cars often have an automatic switch-off function.
ARE CHILDREN'S FILMS ALSO SHOWN?
Yes, we also have children's films in our program, which are shown in the afternoon. Just have a look at our program.
