Where do you get the best currywurst in Berlin? On the hunt for my new BertaBerlin maps, I come across some nice currywurst spots in Berlin. There is even a museum in Berlin dedicated to the history of currywurst, with a lot of tasting samples ;). Currywurst is steamed and fried pork sausages cut into small pieces. Then topped with a sweet curry ketchup and a sprinkle of curry spice. Most likely Herta Heuwer is the inventor of the currywurst. She used ingredients given to her by British soldiers, for this delicious 1949 Berlin creation.
Deutsches Currywurst Museum
The museum presents the legendary snack creation and the invention of the Currywurst in the late 1940s. Since almost everything in the museum is interactively designed, you can touch and taste the history.
