After a day off, where we had the opportunity of visiting the Bauer recording studios in Ludwigsburg, Germany, the Gran(i)Tour, starts its second half, with the most “rural” event of all our mission.

From 7.30PM it will be possible to visit Reiner Schmidt’s farm in Beuerlbach, North-East of Stuttgart. Here you may see different types of experimental grains on which four local families have been working for years.

The Jug Band Colline Metallifere performance will follow the site visit (around 9PM).
