Your feel-good hotel in Boeblingen near Stuttgart

Your “Reussenstein“

Extending a heartfelt welcome to you from our family here at “Reussenstein”!

If there is one restaurant and hotel that can honestly claim to be a true “home away from home”, it’s Reussenstein. Guests travelling alone, couples, business travellers or families can not only find both a wide selection of suitable rooms and apartments – all of them designed and decorated in delightful detail, in keeping with South German tradition – and also the extensive culinary care and attention offered by TV chef Timo Böckle and his team of expert cooks. Reussenstein is the most traditional hotel and gastronomy business in Boeblingen, our hometown, and its has been continuously operated by us here in the Böckle family for over 70 years. Although near downtown Boeblingen, Reussenstein is still quiet and conveniently accessible by public transportation and close to our lakes here in Boeblingen. The Stuttgart airport and exhibition center can be reached easily by Motorway A81, or just jump on a bike and ride over to Stuttgart, our state capital. The first-ever cycle expressway in the state passes right through our nearby forest. Nice to see you here…

The best way to find us is by taking the motorway exit “Boeblingen Ost“.

Griaß godd midnander und herzlich willkommen auf meiner Heimseite

Timo Böckle, son of a Swabian butcher family, completed his apprenticeship as a chef in Eltingen. After passing the final exam, he did his military service – first in Stetten, then in the Theodor-Heuss-Kaserne in Bad Cannstatt. In the latter, he was the shift leader of the officers’ mess and was responsible for catering for the Bundeswehr´s sports promotion group. He was responsible for the implementation of military and civil events in Stuttgart. After completing his military service, he moved to the Black Forest. There he worked as entremetier in the famous Hotel Bareiss in Baiersbronn.

His first engagement outside of Germany took him to the cruise ship MS Europa, on which he was employed as sous chef in the gourmet restaurants Venezia and Asia (today Restaurant Global) during the maiden voyage, and later on her first trip around the world. On the high seas, he also met his future boss,the famous celebrity tv chef Johann Lafer.

After his return he worked as Chef Poissonnier in the gourmet restaurant Le Val d’Or, which was then awarded 2 stars in the Michelin Guide, at Johann Lafers Stromburg in Stromberg. In Lafer’s cooking school and its television studio in Guldental, he gained his first experience in conducting cooking courses and preparing for various television programs and book productions.

This was followed by another stay abroad and a job in the Pacific restaurant of the Carlton Hotel in New Zealand. He took the opportunity and at the same time worked on stage in the Katsura restaurant, where he studied Japanese cuisine and teppanyaki.
Back in Germany, at the age of 25, Böckle successfully passed the master chef examination at the renowned hotel management school in Heidelberg. Finally, due to a serious illness of his father Wolfgang Böckle, he joined the family business Hotel-Restaurant “Reussenstein” in Böblingen, founded in 1953 by grandfather Walter Böckle. Since 2005 Timo Böckle has been in the third generation – together with his sister Sandra – managing director and owner of the Böckle GmbH family. In addition to the hotel and restaurant, this also includes a cooking school, a spaetzle drive-thru, the trade in game from the region and a gourmet shop with regional gifts.
Timo Böckle appeared for the first time as a TV chef immediately after taking over his parents’ business. Since 2005 he has been making the show “coffee or tea” on the Südwestfunk broadcasting(national television)on a regular basis. As a result, he was present in various programs: “Böckle on Tour”, “SWR Spontankochen”, “kitchen classics”, “SWR Saturday evening show” and “Lecker hoch Drei” on ARD Digital. To this day, Böckle is at the stove with “coffee or tea” on the first Wednesday of the month in Baden-Baden. He is repeatedly used as a cook in front of the camera at various events and special programs on SWR television such as the “Pumpkin World Cup” in the Blooming Baroque, at the “Buga Heilbronn” or at the “SWR Summer Festival”. “Koch ein!”,The SWR’s on-demand video cookbook with Timo Böckle, has been running since 2020. This production is broadcast on YouTube, on Facebook and in the ARD media library.
