I don't know if anyone here would happen to know, but might as well ask! We're going to stay with some American military friends in Stuttgart, Germany in a few days. I saw online that that's where Waldorf Steiner education began. So I wondered if there are any Waldorfy places there we should go to? Toy shops or anything?

 

I don't think my friends would know, they're older and their kids are grown up and they've only been there a couple years.

Try the school there, they should be able to put you in contact with a few people. There might even be a playgroup you could attend while you're there (as a visitor) to see how things are done in Germany. That would be a good way of meeting people, etc.

Yeah, it's Steiner heartland.

 

This is the first ever school:

This is the teacher's college:

This is the seat of the Anthroposophical society:

Apparently there is a special exhibition until May:

And another in the Stuttgart fine arts museum (it's Steiner's 150th birthday or something).

Not sure what they do, but it looks very Waldorf:

You might also like guided tours at the anthroposophical cosmetics companies around:

Enjoy!
