After the Solitude Day in 2011 and 2012, the Akademie finally hosts another Solitude Night, a big summer feast with numerous artists, and a nice program including readings, performances, a concert and not to forget food, bar and DJs during the night.
For everybody who always wanted to have a look behind the curtain we offer two guided tours through some private and public spaces of the Akademie and the current exhibition, starting at 6 pm and 6.30 pm.
Drinks will be served by the staff members and food (Maultaschen, Sausages, Flammkuchen and Crêpes) will be provided by mobile caterers from the Stuttgart area.
In bad weather, the Solitude Night takes place inside.
