Vegan Guide to Berlin, Germany

Berlin is the capital of Germany and also the country's most populated city. It is becoming known as the vegan capital of the world. There is lots of vegan and vegetarian restaurants in the city. On top of that there seems to be vegan options all over the place in non-veg places. You can even get the local dish currywurst veganized!


Why You Should Go: It is an exciting city with a variety of unique neighbourhoods. Berlin is well known for it's impressive museums and monuments. The public transport is excellent and very affordable making it easy to get around. The city is full of history and must see historic sights. Berlin is also an affordable city to live in and attracts all kinds of artistic types making the city full of all sorts of interesting attractions to see.


Getting to Berlin: There are two airports to choose from: Berlin Tegel Airport and Berlin Schönefeld Airport. We flew into Berlin Tegel Airport and took the bus into town to our hotel. There are public transport booths and ticket machines were you can buy transport tickets. Both airports are well connected to the city. You will have no problems.

How vegan friendly is it? We found Berlin to be super vegan friendly.  It is probably as vegan friendly as a city gets and you will be overwhelmed with choices of restaurants. Berlin has a few locations of the German vegan grocery store chain called Veganz. Otherwise, there are supermarket chains like Kaiser's that have lots of vegan speciality items and a Veganz section. There are Kaiser's all over Berlin. There is also a chain of health food shops called BIO COMPANY. Our hotel was right near a Kaiser's location which was convenient. 

An Example of Vegan Food Available: 

Soy: A vegetarian Vietnamese restaurant located in Mitte. Other than honey and milk for tea, everything else is vegan. We enjoyed the food here so much that we chose to visit twice during our visit to Berlin.
Sun Day Burgers: Located in Markthalle Neun is Kreuzburg, Sun Day Burgers is a vegan burger stand. These burgers were fantastic. We will definitely be back.
Brammibals: Located in the borough Neukölln, Brammibals is a cafe that specialises in vegan donuts. It's hard to resist getting a box.
Cat Tuong: This is a completely vegan Vietnamese restaurant located in Pankow (Prenzlauer Berg). We had so much to choose from, and it was hard to decide. Everything was delicious.
Vego Foodworld: If you are craving an amazing, greasy burger check out Vego. It has an extensive menu of burgers and other fast food which hit the spot. This burger had a bit of a crispy bun but it was still friggin' delicious. Vego foodworld is also located in Pankow
Veganz: We went to Veganz, and got ourselves some cake for dessert at Goodies which is a little cafe inside the supermarket. There are 3 Veganz locations in Berlin. Each location is a bit different but they have vegan clothing stores and places to get take away food as well as a supermarket.

We managed to try the vegan food at numerous different places and kept costs down as much as possible while in Berlin. We didn't eat out for every meal. Instead we self catered a bit with food bought from the supermarket. Check out what we ate:

Sight SeeingWe made a video of our favourite sights in Berlin: 


Where to stay: We stayed at 'Hotel Alexander Plaza' just around the corner from Fernsehtrum. It is a four star hotel.This hotel has free wifi in the rooms and has free coffee and tea at reception. The beds were very comfortable and the room was spotlessly clean. The hotel was perfectly located in Mitte close to transport links.  If you want to stay in the same area for less money you can stay at the CityStay Hostel. It is on the same street: Rosenstraße.

  3. Those Sun Day Burgers looks delicious! I don't think I've ever actually had a vegan burger, but those make me want to try them out. & I had no idea Berlin was so vegan friendly, wish I had tried more things while I was there. (Just another reason to go back! :P)

    1. They were delicious. We were eating vegan burgers before we were vegan. They are so flavoursome.

  5. I've been reading a lot on Berlin lately and it seems like such a great city! I wouldn't classify myself as vegetarian as I eat fish once in a while (especially while traveling) and I'm certainly not vegan but I am more and more aware of what I'm eating. Knowing a city makes it easy to eat better while being delicious is always a plus for me!

  9. Berlin is still on my bucket list. I have always been underwhelmed with the food options in other German cities, but had no idea that there were so many great vegetarian options. Will have to keep these recommendations for my trip.

  10. Yesss! Looking at this again because we're leaving on Thursday for Berlin!! Can't wait. Brammibal's, Cat Tuong, and Veganz are our must-trys!! There is also a vegan crepe place that I really want to check out since I'm a sucker for crepes (grew up with my mom making Hungarian crepes). And an all vegan pizza place! Aghhh there are just too many places and we also break it up with eating at home sometimes too to save money. Maybe we'll just have to plan on making another visit (haha can't believe I'm planning another visit before we even go).
