The former orphanage has now become an international meeting place: Welthaus e.V. and the world shop have opened their new premises directly adjacent to the Welcome Centre. The old orphanage is an information centre, a place to meet people and exchange ideas and a centre providing a welcoming and recognition culture for people from all over the world who come together in Stuttgart. For example, the Institute for Foreign Relations, the German-American Centre / James-F.-Byrnes-Institut Stuttgart e.V. or Engagement Global etc. are also housed under its roof.
Welthaus Stuttgart e.V. has opened directly adjacent to the Welcome Centre Stuttgart: it has a World Café and global classrooms for meetings and events that are available to Stuttgart citizens and people from all over the world. The World Café is no ordinary café but instead an open events venue and meeting place.
