Deutsches Currywurst Museum Berlin

Posted By Guru4Travel on Sep 15, 2016 at 5:44AM

Currywurst (curried sausage) is as much a part of Berlin as Brandenburger Tor. About 800 million portions of Currywurst are consumed in Germany each year – with 70 million Currywürste eaten each year in Berlin alone. Traditional and unconventional at the same time, it is the culinary emblem of Germany's capital city.

No German national dish inspires as many stories, preferences and celebrity connoisseurs as Currywurst.

In 2005, Berlin fan Martin Löwer came up with the idea for a Deutsches Currywurst Museum - and since it's opening in August 2009, Berliners and tourists alike have been eager to learn the secrets behind this sought-after and legendary snack.
