Food and drink in Germany.

A destination with an exciting culture, varied scenery and a long history, Germany has always known how to make an impression, and German cuisine has long been another highlight to add to the list.

Anyone planning a gourmet tour of Germany can expect an almost infinite wealth of gastronomic delights, from traditional inns to one of the more than 290 Michelin-starred and gourmet restaurants. As well as sharing the same exacting standards regarding the quality and origin of their produce, each eatery also has its own specific culinary concepts. So there is no shortage of choice when it comes to fine interpretations of traditional recipes or modern and innovative creations complete with a pleasant atmosphere and authentic hospitality.

For centuries, Germans have also appreciated good wines. So it is hardly surprising to discover that around 80,000 producers are currently cultivating vines on approximately 102,000 hectares of land, including some international award-winning varieties. Germany currently has no fewer than 13 wine regions. For the last few years, many very creative young people have joined forces with these wine producers – their wine cellars and courtyards should be an essential stop on any gastronomic trip. Whichever region you choose for your "gourmet trail" through Germany, you are sure to find a treat for your taste buds at every stop.
