Gerhard taking a brief rest from eating Currywurst to run Germany

Liked by a lot, disliked by just as many, currywurst is the heart of the vibrant Berlin street food scene with an estimated 800 million servings sold in Germany each year.

The polarising pork in question.

For those that don’t know, Currywurst is the basic combination of wurst cut into slices and seasoned with curry ketchup. This brutal/flavoursome dish even has it’s own museum, located next to Checkpoint Charlie, providing the second greatest juxtaposition of city planning Berlin’s ever seen. Such museum treats include the imaginatively titled tribute ‘Currywurst’ by musician Herbert Grönemeyer that you can listen to below.
