Ice Parlour Proprietress Esther Weeber-Kirschenlohr

How about a scoop of "Mops" (pug dog) or Mercedes ice cream? Unusual varieties, the finest ingredients and a unique location: the Eis-Bistro Pinguin is a cult ice cream parlour, and no less of a cult is the view from across the way on Eugensplatz. Enjoying an ice here on a balmy summer evening with the panorama of the city at your feet is an experience not to be missed!

The owner, Esther Weeber-Kirschenlohr, is Swabian through and through: born in Stuttgart into a family of traditional showmen, she grew up on the fairgrounds of Southwest Germany. The family opened the Pinguin in 1986 – and Esther Weeber-Kirschenlohr has been a full-time inhabitant of Stuttgart ever since.

Her staple diet? Pinguin ice cream, of course. Her favourites are pistachio in rainy weather and refreshing fruity varieties when it's sunny. Esther Weeber-Kirschenlohr's guiding principle as regards her ice cream is: When you put good things in, good things result. And that's why it tastes so fantastic!

Once you've enjoyed the sunset here, you're hooked! An entrancing place when Stuttgart's valley basin is bathed in sunlight." We have to agree with her.
