Where the music plays

The jazzopen is purely a city festival. The stages in Stuttgart's valley are no more than 50 metres away from the festival centre on Schlossplatz or can be reached on foot in five or ten minutes at the most. Getting there is also relatively easy.

Lockers at Schlossplatz

Who hasn't been there? You come straight from work or a little shopping trip to the jazzopen and don't know where to put your bags. Generally speaking, it's better to leave large bags at home, but for all those who have no other option, we will be offering lockers at the Schlossplatz for the first time during the festival to store bags and rucksacks. There will be two different locker sizes on site: a small locker (9.5 cm x 19 cm x 32.5 cm) and a large locker (24 cm x 20 cm x 32 cm). But the range is limited. So if you want to be on the safe side, you can reserve a locker now. How does the reservation work? Simply click on the following link, enter the desired day and size and relax and enjoy the jazzopen.

Here is where you should get off

For the concerts at Schlossplatz  and in the Altes Schloss, get off at Schlossplatz or Charlottenplatz. The BIX Jazzclub is within sight of the Rathaus stop. The SpardaWelt Eventcenter is 300 metres from the Hauptbahnhof.

By car

If you are coming from out of town - via the A8, A81 or A831 - always take the Stuttgart Zentrum or Stuttgart-Mitte exit. If you follow the road towards the city centre, you will automatically end up on the city ring road. The approach via the B10/B14, B27 and B295 also leads to the Stadtring. Follow the signs for free parking spaces in the city centre car parks and choose one. Whichever one you choose - from there it is never far to your desired stage on foot. But be careful! The journey to the city centre can sometimes take a while due to the intense traffic!
