...a great idea to combine a cultural walking tour with interesting local food samples!

This experience impressed us far more than the conventional sights.

What a great experience! ...and we enjoyed the lovely food...Highly recommend it.

Yum! This was an incredible food & culture experience! Mariam, our lovable tour guide introduced each taste through the eyes of the locals with a bit of the history surrounding each culinary gem we visited. We did the Berlin-Kreuzberg tour and experienced a balanced selection of different types of cuisine. With the option to purchase a beer, coffee, or tea at many of the stops.

I just wanted to write to you and let you know how much we enjoyed both of our tours – the one in Berlin and the one in Hamburg.  We were so impressed with both of our guides (both Christinas!) and how much they knew of their respective cities and specific areas and our food tours were our favorite parts of the two weeks we spent in Germany.  Well that and the soccer games, of course!

As for Hamburg, we loved that Christina as well.  She was so charming and funny.  I believe Hamburg in general was my favorite city in Germany and I cannot wait to go back.  Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that we loved the tours and will spread the word to our friends as they visit Germany.

German Dessert Recipes

German recipes: Dessert

A delicious dessert in Northern Germany, especially in Bremen, is Rote Grütze - a red pudding that is made of different berries and currants. It is traditionally served with cream, but you can also serve it with vanilla sauce or whipped cream.
Especially popular German dessert recipes include world famous Schwarzwälderkirschtorte, known in English as Black Forest Cake. For this German recipe you can combine chocolate cake, whipped cream, and cherries for a tasty and impressive German dessert. The cake is not named after the Black Forest itself, but rather from the Schwarzwälder Kirschwasser liquor that is a key ingredient of the cake!
