5 German Favorite Snacks On The Go

Germany has plenty of immigrants who mostly came from other European countries like Turkey, Spain, Italy, Greece, France and Netherlands. Well, some Asian are here too like me. Every immigrants brought their own tradition and culture and of course their food culture. We have abundant restaurants from different nationalities but Germans are still fond of eating their favorite snacks.

Here are some of the Germans favorite snacks.

1. Brötchen mit Aufschnitt 

Brötchen with Aufschnitt means a bread roll with cold cut or smoked meat like ham, salami, Schwarzwälderschinken (Black Forest ham), roast beef or pork. It could be with cheese too like Gouda, Brie or cheese spread. There are lots of Brötchen variations. You only have to tell to the vendor what kind of fillings you want to have. Mostly, it is just a simple Käsebrötchen or Schinkenbrötchen (cheese or ham bread roll).

2. Currywurst

Currywurst is a hot sliced pork sausage covered with curry catsup or tomato paste made into sauce and eaten with bread rolls or French fries. Currywurst is one of the most eaten snacks in Germany.

3. Croissant Sandwiches

Croissant Sandwiches are made of croissants (of course) spread with butter, margarine or cheese spread and filled with anything you like but mostly with cheese, ham or any cold meat cuttings like salami and added with some egg, tomato and cucumber slices.

4. Matjes Brötchen

Matjes is a preserved brined fish, Herring. It is not only eaten in Germany but also in The Netherlands and some parts of Europe. This Matjes is mostly put inside the bread roll or baguette and serve with slices of onions.

5. Bratwurst 

Bratwurst is a fried or grilled pork sausage and it is mostly eaten with bread rolls with mustard or curry catsup.

I could have added Döner here in the list but this food is not German. It is a Turkish popular snack which is getting popular in this country. 

BTW, have you eaten some of the snacks I have mentioned above? Would you love to try just in case you will be visiting Germany? Thanks for reading this blog and please don´t hesitate to comment, like or share. Have a nice day to all. Take care;-)

  3. I had to laugh looking at those German foods. Been living away from Germany for over 30 years, but it's not those things I miss. Yes, some matjes maybe cos they're hard to get in England, but few of the other "Imbiss" type foods.
    Some of the German dishes I miss are meat based as it's hard to get the right cuts outside Germany. But I'm doing ok and there's nothing I miss so much that I want to return.

    1. Hi Angela. I can relate to that missing German food when I am in other countries for a few months as I miss German food especially the various kinds of bread. Aldi shops are selling German food in Ireland and maybe there are Aldis too in the UK. Some of the Polish shops are also selling German food. Maybe you can find what you missed in those shops there. Good luck. I have read some of your blogs and I´ll continue reading those you write. Happy weekend!

  4. I have eaten Bratwurst and just love them. Here in Latvia we has similar type sausages called Thuringen. All that food sounds wonderful.

  5. Thuringen or Thüringen is a German sausage too Rasma and I love eating them. I´m glad you have tried Bratwürste (plural of Bratwurst).Thanks and good night;-))) Happy Sunday!
