Currywurst @ Regensburg, Germany

Some things are unavoidable when you are visiting Germany...

Such as visiting a massive cathedral...

Or enjoying a wurst (German sausage) at a roadside stall...

Currywurst consists of a sausage which is steamed then fried, and served with a curry ketchup sauce and sprinkled with some curry powder. This dish can be served with a bun, bretzel or some french fries. History books state that the Currywurst was first found in Berlin but people from different places such as Hamburg and Bochum will beg to differ. Anyhow, it is a great fast food dish which is so simple yet very satisfying.

This currywurst was served with a schwarzer kipferl (this is a locally produced bun baked with cumin seeds)

The place was very busy during lunchtime and bustling with customers flowing in and out for their daily wurst

The stand is situated right beside the Neupfarrkiche in the Neupfarrplatz, Regensburg Old Town

A great snack on a cold German winter's day...

Price: €2.70 for a currywurst and a bun of your choice (kipferl, semmel, breze)

Location: Neupfarrplatz, Regensburg, Germany (Beside the Neupfarrkiche)

    1. The Unc is my brother who lives in Germany, he occasionally blogs for me. :)

  8. Currywurst was invented by Herta Heuwer in Berlin in 1949 as an affordable but filling meal for the people of Berlin at a time when food was in short supply.

    When you order your Currywurst you can ask for it skin on “Currywurst mit Darm” or without skin “Currywurst ohne Darm”. Sausage casings were in short supply in the Soviet-controlled side of the city. If you grew up in East Berlin, you like sausage without skin; if you grew up in West Berlin, you probably prefer sausage with skin.

    I’m not from Berlin, I prefer Currywurst without skin and in my opinion the best place to get it is from Fritz & Co (a Currywurst stall) on Wittenberg Platz in the Schöneberg area of Berlin.
