Few foods are more iconic than the German fast food sausage dish, Currywurst. Steamed, then fried pork sausage is seasoned with spicy curry ketchup, then served up with a side of crisp and golden French fries. And while this regional dish can be found on just about any street corner in Berlin, it’s the Currywurst Museum located in this eclectic city that really tells the story of this popular treat.
Travelers can wander through galleries dedicated to this fine food and learn about its inception back in the 1940s, as well as how this local dish was made famous in movies, television, music and pop culture. The interactive nature of Currywurst Museum means visitors can taste, touch and smell just about everything. And of course, there’s plenty of opportunity to sample these spicy dogs, too.
The Currywurst Museum is located near Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin. It is accessible via the U-Bahn, bus and S-Bahn. It is open from 10 a.m. until 6p.m. daily. Tickets are 11 euro for adults and 8.5 euro for students and seniors.
