Vegan in Berlin

Featured Guide

The trouble with visiting Berlin as a vegan is the high chance that you'll return with a camera roll featuring more pics of your meals than of the sights. The upside is that if you like to eat, there are so many vegan restaurants with enough variety that Berlin is a blast to visit even in the cold winter months. As a vegan and digital marketing manager at PETA UK, I love traveling around Europe checking out vegan-friendly places and Germany’s capital seems to have the most booming vegan community. You can visit again and again and keep discovering new vegan treats. Here’s some of my favourites:

Flohmarkt am Mauerpark

The place seems to be on every local’s list of places to take visitors. On Sunday at the corner of Mauerpark, this flea market is very popular - so set aside time to browse! Great for shopping if you’re after a quirky souvenir or just people watching, arrive early to avoid the crowds....

Chipps

Surprisingly off the tourist path despite being only a 15 minute walk from Alexanderplatz and just two minutes from Museum Island. I have only ever gone for breakfast, and had a delicious light meal served by very friendly staff. The menu is classy and mostly vegetarian, but they can sort vegans out...

Sing Blackbird

Take refuge from the galleries and fashion shops in “Kreuzkölln”, the area between Kreuzberg and Neukölln, by popping in to Sing Blackbird. Part vintage clothes shop, part cafe, Sing Blackbird is a lovely hangout where you can grab a vegan brunch, browse zines or just enjoy a coffee and free wi-fi....

Reichstag

Besides the obvious tourist attractions it is also worth a visit to the German parliament, Bundestag, for a free tour of the roof terrace and dome of the Reichstag Building. Entry is free but advanced registration is required. The building shows great views of the city with a free Audioguide....

Alternative Berlin Tours

Go on, get out the camera and be a tourist! There are plenty of guided tours meeting at the Alexanderplatz TV Tower to show visitors the sights, but Alternative Berlin's tours aim to show visitors the unusual places you wouldn't discover yourself. The street art workshop is particularly fun, as it...

Kopps - Vegan Restaurant & Bar - Berlin/Mitte

A pricier vegan establishment in Mitte run by well-known “vegan head chef” Björn Moschinski, Kopps makes for an excellent night out eating veganised traditional German food. But the highlight for me is their weekend brunch buffet. A huge feast of well presented delicious foods is laid out, with...

essentis bio-seminarhotel an der spree

If you are tired of the city and want somewhere with a country-feel, essentis bio-seminarhotel an der spree is located in Koepenik, the greenest part of Berlin, right near the Freizeit und Erholungszentrum park. The hotel is on the river with a boat dock, has an organic restaurant with plenty of...

Almodovar Hotel Berlin - Biohotel

The Almodóvar Hotel not only offers stylish upscale accommodation, it is also Berlin's first vegetarian organic hotel. With quiet beautiful rooms, The Almodóvar is a great place to relax, roll out the yoga mat, enjoy the rooftop spa and then have tapas for lunch at the organic restaurant....

Veganz -Wir lieben Leben- OHG

Animal-free supermarket chain Veganz is rapidly expanding. They opened their Friedrichshain location in early 2013, giving vegans thousands options and the ability to do a grocery shop in confidence without examining ingredient lists. If you are staying in self-catered accommodation, make...

Tiergarten

An essential visit for any tourist, Tiergarten is Berlin's largest inner city park. You can visit Brandenburg Gate, walk down through the park to the Victory Column at Grosser Stern, through the English Gardens and get a soya latte at Café am Neuen See beside the lake Neuer See....
