Tobias Bätz

A Michelin-starred chef who conjures up exquisite German country cuisine

Tobias Bätz is a true gourmet craftsman. Together with his team and patron Alexander Herrmann, the head chef at AURA knows how to combine modern, innovative cuisine with local traditions to surprise and delight guests. It is no coincidence that two of the coveted Michelin stars have been shining above the restaurant in Wirsberg since 2019. His product philosophy: consistently regional. Together with his food scout, he has built up a network of around 60 partners and farmers in the region so that he can influence the quality of the food used right from the start. The common denominator: quality, sustainability and a sense of home. Supposedly exotic ingredients from regional cultivation open up almost limitless culinary possibilities.

Success isn't owned. It is leased, and rent is due every day.
