Started at 7pm at the “Altes Schloss” (old castle), made it to the 3rd floor where the Tsar relations of the Württemberg Kings are shown, skipped this level, as too much crowded – went through the exhibitions of “stone age” through Roman times and middle age till 19th Century.
Passed and skipped as well the “Neues Schloss” (new castle) as of overcrowded, Had a short stop at the crowd of the oldtimer transport to the Porsche museum.
Entered the museum of the “Kunstverein Stuttgart” – currently mainly video installations, photos etc regarding the topic “folded SPACE”, exhibition called “Something in Space Escapes Our Attempts at Surveying”. Liked Charbel Ackermann: The New Geometry, (2003–2006) with ironic exaggeration of the topos “axis of the evil”.
Crossed part of the park, passing the opera, and went over to the Historic Museum. Despite the heavily crowded rooms, still interesting view, and presentation of the Baden-Württemberg state’s history.
Staatsgelerie was not participating unluckily. So forwarded to the planetarium. Waited some 20-30 mins to enter the show. After not having been in a planetarium for dozens of years, it was an event again.
Main station tower platform was the next target. Interesting views to the nightly Stuttgart and the leftovers of the main station.
Once again crossing a road through the underground – finally reached the miniature train exhibtion, created by very enthusiastic hobbyists.
Technically that was less the 20 percent of the offer, regarding time, taking into account all the waiting time it was more than expected to be done.
Felt 50.000 vistors.
only few twigs blooming.
Sunny February afternoon at the Killesberg park in Stuttgart.

Thinking where to go next, currently prefer South America over Australia but this may change,

Today, still about 9 million km from the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, Rosetta’s pre-programmed internal ‘alarm clock’ woke up the spacecraft. After warming up its key navigation instruments, coming out of a stabilising spin, and aiming its main radio antenna at Earth, Rosetta sent a signal to let mission operators know it had survived the most distant part of its journey.
