When In Germany, Eat Sausages

In our new Globe Trotter series, Viral Travel reviews all the best places to see, eat, and stay at, in every country of the world!

This week we visit: Germany


Germany is worldwide famous for its hearty meals and gigantic portions – from mouth-watering schnitzels and pretzels to delicious apple strudels and out-of-this-world Schwarzwalder Kirschtorten, better known as Black Forest cakes in English-speaking countries.

Although you can’t go wrong with basically any traditional German dish, we have decided to introduce you to the country’s most loved food of all time – sausages. Locals really love their sausages and they wouldn’t trade them for the world – this may sound like a generalization, but Germans are super serious when it comes to wursts.

Believe it or not, there are over 1500 different types of sausages in this Central European country and you will find them literally everywhere, from street stalls to fancy restaurants. The most popular sausages are bratwurst (made of fried ground pork and spices), Wiener (smoked and boiled), blutwurst and schwarzwurst (both are blood sausages).

Depending on the region you are visiting, the most popular ones are Berlin’s currywurst (sausage with curried ketchup on top), Bavaria’s weisswurst (you peel the white sausage before eating with sweet mustard), and Nuremberg’s rostbratwurst with sauerkraut (fermented shredded cabbage).
