Spoil your taste buds in Germany
From bratwurst to beer, the Germans have given us fantastic, familiar cuisine. However, when you spend some time in the country you'll discover a far more extensive world of hearty flavours. For either breakfast or dinner you can enjoy Brotzeit, a spread of cured meats, excellent cheeses, and wholegrain bread. For lunch or dinner, be sure to try spätzle, a free-form noodle cooked with cheese, onions, or meat, and sauerbraten, which is essentially pot roast.
Vegetarian alternatives can be found in most city restaurants. Lots of the traditional soups are made with vegetables and plenty of fruit is grown in the country, including apples, pears, and cherries. Don’t miss out on the desserts. From Black Forest cake to apple strudel, German cakes and tartes are a delight, and often enjoyed mid-afternoon as traditional Kaffee und Kuchen. Wash it all down with some quality beer, of course, or a local Riesling or Weißburgunder.
