1. German Christmas biscuits
From Vanillekipferl (little half-moon shaped vanilla biscuits) to Zimtsterne (star shaped, soft, cinnamon-flavoured biscuits), Kokosmakronen (chewy, soft coconut biscuits) to Butterplätzchen (plain, buttery biscuits) — Germans do know a thing or two about baking.
Combining two of the best foods: curry sauce and sausages. This is the perfect greasy salty drunk food, best accompanied by a big portion of chips. There’s even a museum dedicated to this delightful food in Berlin!
This is the ultimate hangover breakfast. Potatoes, egg, and onions, fried in a pan, and served with pickled gherkins — if that doesn’t cure your hangover, nothing will.
Crumbly dough, covered in crunchy nuts with chocolate round the corners. A triangle has never tasted more yum.
You know when you go to Pizza Hut and mix the Coke and Fanta togther? Germany sells that ready made in a bottle! What a world.
Also called Fleischpflanzerl in the south of Germany, they’re basically a thicker burger patty, often served with potato salad or eaten on a bread roll, with some mustard on the side.
11. PROPER Lebkuchen
A chewy, soft centre, filled with nuts and spices, covered in chocolate or glazed with sugar, with almonds or hazelnuts sprinkled on top. It wouldn’t be Christmas without them.
12. Ritter Sport
Little chocolate squares that come in all kinds of flavours. You might have seen them in airports before, but there’s so many varieties to try. Also the Ritter Sport museum (of course there’s one) has the best vending machine ever.
14. Strammer Max
Egg on ham on dark, German bread. So simple. So good.
A GENEROUS layer of hazelnut flavoured chocolate creme sandwiched between two wafers. The classic after school treat.
18. Duplo chocolate
More chocolatey hazelnut deliciousness, this time with a kind of nougat creme inside.
