German cuisine – from gourmet delights to currywurst

Cuisine in Germany is as diverse as the regions in which it is made. Good old-fashioned taverns, more than 200 star-rated restaurants and everything in-between offer something for all tastes and any budget.

People love to eat in Germany, and it's easy to see why! But it wouldn't be half as good without all the regional specialities, which include fish in the north, fruit from the orchards of the Altes Land, potato dumplings in eastern Germany, sauerbraten in the Rhineland, and egg noodles and sweet treats in the south. Between mid-April and late June the humble asparagus features heavily in dishes in almost all parts of Germany.
