What you’ll do

You’ll feast your way through East Berlin with one of our local Berlin hosts by your side, discovering its exciting flavors and indulging in traditional delicacies like currywürst, pretzels, schnitzels, strudels, bratwürst and eisbein - try saying that list out loud, quickly.

Note the inclusion of contemporary ingredients as you go along - as Europe’s youngest capital city, East Berlin is known for its cultural diversity and fusion of nationalities. This has been reflected in its cuisine, where local favorites include dishes from a broad array of cultural backgrounds, notably from Turkey.

Wander around East Berlin with your host, stopping off at trendy eateries and wholesome food markets that locals love along the way. Chat to your host about the food cultures of the various districts and learn about the way Berlin’s history has influenced its cuisine today.

Perhaps you’d like to end off your experience at an outdoor biergarten. Predictably, the beer game is strong in the capital.

Fun food tour

Had so much fun learning about the city and eating our way through it. We loved eating all the German food. Our guide was amazing and very knowledgeable about the food in Berlin. She took us places we would have never found ourselves from oldest bakery in town to the best kebabs!!

bright, knowledgeable , engaging

Josa met us at our hotel at the designated time. He reviewed the day’s itinerary which he tailored to our requests. He was personable, informed and answered our many questions about Berlin - past and present. He ended the tour by offering his assistance should we seek his help. He proved to be a bright, knowledgeable , engaging guide , whom we strongly recommend.
