Berlin

If you hadn't already heard, Berlin is fast becoming the main hotspot for vegan travellers.


With its wide variety of vegan restaurants, cafe's, supermarkets and shops it has really made a name for itself as a vegan landmark!

When my husband and I decided to have a little winter mini break away this year, there was only one place on my list that I wanted to visit - Berlin!


Not only is Berlin amazing for vegan travellers, it's also an incredibly vibrant and arty city with so much history and culture to immerse yourself in.



In November the Christmas markets begin and Berlin has more Christmas markets than any other German city so it's the perfect place to get into the festive spirit and pick up some gifts.


Whilst in Berlin we booked a table at the Kopps vegan restaurant which is highly rated on Trip Advisor. This was a real treat!
                                      



I loved that every dish at Kopps seemed to just celebrate vegetables and their versatility. I did find that a lot of vegan eateries in Berlin try to create alternatives to meat which is great for the people who have really struggled to eradicate meat from their diets. But for me I didn't like meat in the first place so I am not looking for a fake alternative. 

Talking of fake alternatives, we just had to try the Voner vegan doner kebab shop! It was something I needed to see to believe. I had heard things about it online and I was keen to try it for myself although I kind of knew before we got there that it wouldn't be for me. And unfortunately I was right! But the chips & salad were really good.


I was so impressed to see that Berlin has its own vegan supermarket Veganz! The idea of a supermarket which purely stocks vegan only goods seems like an impossibility here in the UK, but Berlin is demonstrating to the world that this can be a reality. 



Veganz is situated on a road that has become known to the locals as 'Vegan Avenue' as not only is there a vegan supermarket and cafe, but there is also a vegan fashion shop called Dear Goods which stocks a variety of vegan & eco friendly clothing and accessories. 


Obviously whilst in Berlin I needed to get my vegan sweet fix so we headed over to the extremely cute vegan cafe Oh La La , where we indulged in some delicious crepes! 



We had a truly memorable time in Berlin. It's an amazing city with something for everyone - not just the vegans!
