Pastry cook Aline John

The great art of cake making: There's an insider tip for bon vivants In the west of Stuttgart: at "tarte & törtchen" the patissière Aline John conjures up miniature works of art – often from her grandmother's recipes and always with the best ingredients – organically grown, fairly traded or from the region. One example: "Wunderland", the patisserie's bestseller, is a combination of slightly bitter poppyseed mousse and white chocolate, with a sweetly acid cassis topping. And it tastes just as fantastic as it looks!


Aline John feels at home in the Stuttgart Region, and after many stops in France and Germany has now realised her dream of her own bakery with a delightful café back in her homeland. Fortunately for us!

Birkenkopf at night

Favourite lookout: Birkenkopf


Aline John's favourite lookout point is the Birkenkopf, the highest hill in the inner-city area with a height of 511 m. It is also of historical significance: piled on top of it are more than 150,000,000 m³ of debris from the devastation of World War II – which is why it is known locally as "Monte Scherbelino" ("Mount Rubble"). From this memorial site there's a fantastic view!
