Firefighter Museum, 19 September 2015

Dear Members and Guests,

Please join us on Saturday, 19 September 2015, for the visit of the Stuttgart Hall of Flame Museum - and learn about the history of firefighting from the 15th century until today.

In an old factory hall from 1906, the Stuttgart firefighter alumni club presents a tremendous collection of old fire trucks, carriages, historic equipment, uniforms, documents, pictures, which leads you through six centuries of firefighting in the City of Stuttgart. It also documents the development of organized firefighting established by the Duke of Württemberg, from the foundation of the voluntary firefighter associations in 1851, to the establishment of a municipal fire brigade in 1891.

We will start our visit with a brief introduction into the history of the museum and then continue with two guided tours, one in English and one in German. And our friends from the firefighters will also serve some coffee and cake for our wellbeing.

Meeting time: 14:45 at the entrance of the museum.
Start of introduction: 15:00 sharp
Cost: Members are free, guests pay 5 €
Address of Meeting point: Museum entrance at Murgtalstasse 60, Stuttgart-Münster
