Fresh and organic for the school canteen
Uhlandshöhe Waldorf School in Stuttgart

It is the birthplace of anthroposophical schools: The Waldorf School at Uhlandshöhe in Stuttgart is the first of its kind in the world. To mark its 100th anniversary, the old administration building on the school grounds was replaced by a modern building. The organisation invested around 22 million euros in modern classrooms, state-of-the-art specialist rooms for science and art and a eurythmy hall. In addition, a new dining hall and a professional kitchen were built, in which state-of-the-art MKN technology has been in use since March 2023. Healthy, vitamin-rich food in organic quality and the complete avoidance of convenience. These are the principles behind the menu in the school canteen at the Waldorf School at Uhlandshöhe.


Up to 350 meals a day have to be prepared at the school for the pupils and teaching staff. Fast, fresh and delicious. Recommendations from colleagues in the professional chef sector led to the decision in favour of MKN technology. The kitchen team appreciates the many MKN features such as simple operation, optimised time sequences, precise regeneration, reliability and sustainability as well as the quality of the appliances. This is ensured by appliances from the Modular Optima 850 range, such as an induction hob, pressure cooker and pressure braiser, as well as a FlexiChef Team and two FlexiCombi appliances. All in all, the best conditions for bringing fresh and delicious dishes in organic quality to the table without stress.


On 7 September 1919, the entrepreneur Emil Molt opened a school for the children of workers at his Waldorf-Astoria cigarette factory in Stuttgart's Haußmannstraße: the Freie Waldorfschule Uhlandshöhe. The educational concept was developed by Rudolf Steiner, the founder of anthroposophy. The focus is on the talents and abilities of the children. They should be encouraged - cognitively, artistically and in terms of craftsmanship. Intellectual, practical and creative subjects are therefore equally important. Today, this pedagogy has spread from Stuttgart all over the world. More than 1150 schools and almost 1900 kindergartens offer Waldorf education.
