Wilhelmer gastronomy – hospitality has a name and 40 year tradition

It all began 40 years ago in West Stuttgart­ with the “Stuttgarter Stäffele”. Erika ­Wilhelmer opened a wine bar in the state capital, serving wonderful Swabian cuisine that has since attracted guests from all over the world. That, however, was just the first chapter of a long success story. “Stäffele” was followed some time later by the restaurant-café “Ampulle”, with its original pharmacy furnishings a jewel of a place in West Stuttgart. It’s not just that name of Wilhelmer was on everyone's lips there, Erika Wilhelmer and her son Michael were also doing big things in the catering business. Whether for large companies or smaller occasions – Wilhelmer Catering offers excellent service of the highest standard for events of various sizes.

The latest highlights are “Wilhelmer’s SchwabenWelt” at the Stuttgart Beer Fes­tival and the world’s largest Pig ­Museum with the attached restaurant “Stuttgarter Schlachthof”. The SchwabenWelt has been entertaining around 150,000 visitors at the Cannstatt Fun Fair annually since 2009. The unique old timber look, stylish interior design and unforgettable atmosphere have earned the SchwabenWelt already the reputation as one of Germany’s most popular fair marquees.

The Pig Museum and the Stuttgarter Schlachthof are the latest but no less successful projects of the Wilhelmer family. In its first year, the Pig Museum already recorded more than 50,000 visitors. In the Stuttgarter Schlachthof, a traditional inn with wonderful sun terraces, a large beer garden and capacity for more than 800 persons, guests enjoy varied German cuisine in an unrivalled atmosphere.

With so many establishments, the Wilhelmers rank as one of Stuttgart’s most respected families on the gastronomy scene, and we wait with baited breath in anticipation of new projects and the next years of Wilhelmer gastronomy …
