The German Food Tour:

The German Food Tour is the first food tour in Berlin focusing on German food. And German food has much more to offer than Schnitzel, Wurst and Sauerkraut.


In Berlin there are restaurants of nearly all German regions, for example Bavaria, Baden, Hesse, Thuringia or Brandenburg. Sometimes they are hidden and not located in the main tourist area.


German Food Tour


The German food tour – guided in German, English and Spanish – leads to four typical restaurants in the center of the city and four German regions are covered. In every restaurant there is a snack and a typical drink like German beer or German wine. Juice or mineral water is also available, if you do not drink alcohol.

All restaurants visited are small, sometimes family business and no chain restaurants. The tour lasts 2 to 3 hours, during which you will learn all about German cuisine by a knowledgeable guide. Furthermore you will receive tips for good restaurants in town.


The amount of food equals a normal dinner. To end the tour the customers will receive home made German cake, for example Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte, cheese cake or fruit cake. There are options for vegetarians.

The price of the tour is 60 Euro, all inclusive. Most part of the tour will be done walking. The distance between the restaurants usually is 5 to 10 minutes walking distance. If one restaurant is too far away, we will use public transport. If you do not have a ticket for public transport in Berlin, you can buy a single ticket which is around 3 Euro however this is not included in the tour price.


Even in bad weather the tours go ahead regardless of weather it is sunny or rainy. Maximum size for a group is 12 people.


The tour is Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 6 pm, all year round. Starting point is Kollwitzplatz in Prenzlauer Berg.
