The Esslinger Cultural Festival "stadt im fluss"
The cultural festival "stadt im fluss" (City on the River) designed by the Cultural Office shines the spotlight on Esslingen’s channel landscape every three years.
The cultural festival places special emphasis on the networking of many of the city’s public and private cultural institutions, while simultaneously promoting the active participation of Esslingen’s clubs, schools, and cultural institutions.
The productions successfully present the many known and hitherto unknown places along the arms of the Neckar that flow through downtown Esslingen; artists take possession of Esslingen’s channel landscape and present it from a whole new perspective.
In 2013, Esslingen am Neckar received an award of recognition for its Cultural Festival from the “Lebendige Stadt” Foundation, naming it one of the most beautiful festivals in Germany.
