Mapping my way from Stuttgart Central Station
to Hanns-Martin-Schleyer-Halle

Stuttgart has a pleasant appearance overall.
At the beginning of my trip, everything was in the process of construction. The big park next to the station, was replaced by ruins. I had some trouble crossing the narrow roads where signs “Under construction” were assigned.
The path I have chosen as against to the ones that were proposed by the map navigation, in my opinion was much safer (tram-lines circulating frequently) and easier to remember. Timing wise, it took one hour and a half to get to the Concert Hall, but that was only because I had to turn back several times while getting lost in Stuttgart.

Traffic on B10 – Uferstraße in Stuttgart 

The long queue next to the Porche Arena – indicated that this is the place I was looking for. (According to the map – it was a bit further)

My camera wasn’t allowed into the Concert Hall (I left it at the entrance with a person responsible for valuable things of that kind). My mobile phone was at it’s last 5% of battery due to it’s use for correct path checks, so couldn’t take as many photos as I wished I could at the actual Concert. Instead, I got to enjoy the view, to listen and dance to the awesome music! So, no regrets.

Before the concert, there was a possibility to buy food and beer. I’ve eaten while was on train so didn’t consider buying anything.

As I belonged to the Golden Circle and the past days was on an antisocial mood – chosen a seat next to the entrance, on the third row. This allowed me to feel protected and comfortable. And in short time I felt like that was where I was supposed to be.

♡ – Full of Determination and Straight-forward messages.
♡ – Had a very powerful Light Set-up – empowered their performance. Loved it.
♡ – IMHO: too much screaming, couldn’t understand the words, but again, I don’t really know that well German language. (could be also caused by the sound equilibration).
♡ – The innocent sounds (piano, flute) and their combination with brutal male growls. Love it!

♡ – LEGENDARY for me:
Got to know their music from the OST of Queen of the Damned (2002)
Found this Concert and came to Stuttgart – Their Tour.
♡ – Every team member showed their capabilities at their full extent.
♡ – Played with us, Made us scream and not to worry about everything else besides feeling ourselves free and enjoying our time there.
FuckYeah!

General thoughts
throughout the Concert:

♡ – the Team for the event was great!
Professional and very efficient
1. Had to assemble and disassemble set-ups for each band in short time and I know this is not an easy task.
2. There were doctors and emergency situation officers that were energetic and they actually helped many people. I saw that! 🙂
3. There were security guards everywhere and I found it very funny and entertaining to watch the “wave people” getting grabbed and put down by them when those were getting close to the stage.
4. A secret that I observed is that they had some tape that was used as a kind of mobile barriers, this kept people actually active and formed a bigger collective. People could still leave the “square”, but less that normally will do that, since the tactile and visual barrier was set.
5. Light – a very powerful tool to send a message. It amplified it. Was spectacular.
6. Everyone was very nice from their team, no aggression and when I was asked to leave (the concert finished), one of them even said “Thank you.”… so cute!
♡ – every band showed their skills and send a message;
made us unite.


Going back to
A U G S B U R G

The walk back to Stuttgart Central Station was nice, even if I felt drained, without any means of help from my phone’s map, I got to destination successfully.

The silence of the night was such a big contrast to the extremely loud music from the concert.

Had something to snack in a open central station cafe and fell asleep several times while waiting another 2 hours for the first train to Augsburg.

Station Time 25.03.2017
Stuttgart Hbf 03:36 ICE 619
Augsburg Hbf 05:29 39,90 €

Fell asleep several times in the train as well.

Luckily, I got off at my station! Took a bus to Königsplatz and then waited another 18 minutes for the tram.

Got home safe and slept long, so long that I’ve missed my choir class. 😀
