Currywurst should be on the Berlin flag. Some of the best food you’ll find in Berlin comes from the street food vendors. There is even a museum in Berlin dedicated to the history of currywurst, that’s how much of a big deal it is. Currywurst is steamed and fried pork sausages cut into small pieces. Then there is the sweet curry ketchup and a sprinkle of curry spice for that special flavor and appeal. We can thank Herta Heuwer, who used ingredients given to her by British soldiers, for this sweet 1949 Berlin creation. Now, onto the stands!
Many will argue that Curry 36 is the best currywurst in Berlin. We think its worth coming to your own conclusions. Your best location to begin your wurst journey is here, but try not to get hooked onto your nostalgic first time, we want no bias biting.
Located in Prenzlauer Berg, Konnopke’s Imbiss is one of the leading currywurst stations in Berlin. Many will swear by its excellent flavor and juicy delight. We hope you like mayo, because here you’ll get plenty of it. We would be really shocked if you left here disappointed.
This locally sourced meat joint is a golden find in the middle of Mitte. They offer both pork and beef wursts for those of you who can’t handle pork and extra garlicky saucy sauce, which is always key to a delicious currywurst.
If you’re close to Gesundbrunnen, or on the train passing through Gesundbrunnen, you will hear Germans talking about Curry Baude – if you understand German that is. Just listen closely for Curry Baude and watch as the locals lick their lips aching to get out of the train and onto their Curry Baude dish.
If you need the spiciest currywurst in order to really enjoy your wurst with fries, try out Curry & Chili in Berlin’s Wedding district, if you dare. Let us know if you manage to pull out any other flavors besides “hot.”
Curry 61 is cool because they also have a vegetarian option, which most of these curry joints refuse to have. It’s almost non-sensical, but also non-exclusive to only meat eaters. Make it spicy, and no one will even notice you’re a vegetarian.
If you want to get classy with your curry, check out Dom Curry. You can find this curry booth right in the heart of Berlin, by the Gendarmenmarkt. Eating fancy, while you eat street food on the go, now that’s true class.
This place is far out, if you’re sticking to the Mitte, Kreuzberg, and Neukölln area, but well worth a bite. Krasselt’s is located in Stieglitz, which is a good place to people-watch and see what it’s really like to be surrounded by mostly German locals.
