It's always quite crowded in S-Bahn and U-Bahn in Stuttgart's early October. Everyone wants to go to the Wasen, the place where the traditional Volksfest takes place.

Some go for the exciting rides, some for the beer tents ... we personally just went for an evening of fun:

Merry-go-rounds for our little one, sugar roasted almonds for all of us.

Recently it was celebration day in our local protestant church parish: Erntedank - Thanksgiving! It is a day to give thanks for the plenty of food we have and for all the good things we received.
The church altar was decorated with loads of fruit and vegetable and various food items:

The day was celebrated with service, lunch, coffee and, certainly, delicious cakes! It was great to chat with people - old friends, new acquaintances. There was an outdoor play area for the kids which was happily used. Also, the bell tower of the church was open for a visit and I had the pleasure to experience the narrow stairs and to see the large bell that reminds our town of time and church services.
