Social Events Am ersten Abend planen wir zuerst eine Stadtführung durch die Stuttgarter Innenstadt. Im Anschluss gibt es ein gemeinsames Abendessen in Stuttgarts erster Lokalbrauerei, dem "Calwer Eck" (schwäbische Küche).
Am Mittwoch bieten wir eine Besichtigung unserer 3-D Visualisierungs-CAVE an.
Am Dienstag oder Donnerstag sei ein Besuch der Neuen Staatsgalerie empfohlen (Di/Do bis 20:00 geöffnet). Die Sammlung moderner Kunst des 20. Jahrhunderts ist wirklich sehenswert.
Spaß macht auch ein abendlicher Besuch des Stuttgarter Fernsehturms. Er ist sowohl der erste Stahlbetonturm, als auch der erste Fernsehturm der Welt.
Die Social Events sind auf Selbstkostenbasis, also nicht in eventuellen Kursgebüren enthalten.
Wir würden uns freuen, wenn Sie daran teilnehmen möchten.
