Fund-raising at the Jubilee Column

During the "Stuttgart Glanzlichter" the creative spotlight will be on the Jubilee Column on Stuttgart's Palace Square as the symbol of "Herzenssache", a fund-raising appeal that's truly "close to the heart": With every donation to "Herzenssache", the children's relief campaign of the SWR and SR broadcasting corporations and the Sparda-Bank, visitors can illuminate this Stuttgart landmark. Donations can be made either online or in person at the Palace Square.

Königsstrasse lluminations

"Stuttgart Highlights" will light up the whole of Königstrasse. Some 110 trees along the middle of the shopping precinct will be decked with thousands of LED lamps. Look forward to this very special atmosphere!

100% Green Energy

All lit up: As well as using the latest LED technology, the "Stuttgart Highlights" project also relies on 100 per cent green electricity from the Stadtwerke Stuttgart, making it an established partner of Stuttgart's energy revolution. The climate-neutral green energy provided by the Stadtwerke helps to reduce the CO² emissions that harm the climate, making an important contribution towards a sustainable future.
