Berlin - more than a foodie's paradise
Berlin is one of Europe's great cities, with a history stretching back almost a thousand years. There's so much to see and do here, from the Brandenburg Gate and Checkpoint Charlie, to some of Europe's best contemporary art in the city's many galleries. The Wall Museum and East Side Gallery are ideal for anyone interested in the Cold War era, while the wide open spaces of the Tiergarten and the Berlin Zoo provide fun in the outdoors. When it comes to food, Berlin's dining scene is wonderfully eclectic - uncover the secrets behind a snack that's synonymous with Berlin at the Deutsches Currywurst Museum Berlin.
A feast for the senses
The Deutsches Currywurst Museum Berlin has been helping visitors understand Berlin's obsession with the humble currywurst since 2009, and is located in the centre of town near Checkpoint Charlie. Trace the invention and history of currywurst, see examples of it in popular German culture and sample some yourself in the museum's cafe - with chips, of course. The many interactive exhibits, including 'sniff stations', will appeal to younger visitors especially and may just inspire them to create their own culinary delights.
