Hi all,<br>
Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this!<br><br>
I'll be traveling to Germany later this month for a week and I'd like some advice on what I can eat as a vegan there. I was in Germany many many years ago (like, 25 years ago!!!) and I wasn't a vegan then.<br><br>
I'll be staying in some Baden (can't remember which one, but not Baden Baden) that is about an hour away from Munich, if that helps.<br><br>
Any ideas? I get visions of sausage and pickled cabbage everywhere and that's as far as my imagination goes, sadly (hey, at least the pickled cabbage is vegan <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">).<br><br>

I think being vegan in Germany is ok if you live there. Not so much as a tourist when you have to depend on restaurants a lot. Munich should offer quite a few vegan alternatives though. Stay clear from German restaurants. They offer vegan food if you ask for it but don't expect it to be good tasting.

hey, i don't really know why, but i just did a google search for "vegan germany" and found this thread, so thought i'd join real quick and tell you how much the situation for vegans in germany is improving <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br>
generally speaking i agree with mufflon, near munich you should have no problems, we have restaurants like loving hut and other stuff here, i think you can actually go on yelp.de for that by now, oor you can have a look on happycow <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"><br>
german restaurants are indeed the worst option here, though there are some vegan german places throughout the country. i'd say you can also try out italian places, which are pretty big in germany, and at least the pasta is always an option there. also some asian restaurants, but better ask there, and well, i guess i'm not telling you anything new here, since that's the situation everywhere <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br>
grocery stores will give you your veggie sausage/tofu/soy milk fix, usually every grocery store will do for that. you could of course also look for organic grocery stores like alnatura, which would be a slightly bit comparable to whole foods in the us <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"><br>
also, on the homepage of the vegan society germany you can find a link to the different vegan society groups in the cities with their contact person, so you can write someone there and they can provide you with personal assistance <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"><br><br>
hope you'll enjoy your trip to germany and hopefully you'll survive in the country of sausages and sauerkraut <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Yeah, well I've yet to find vegan sausages in the US that are as good as the vegan sausages in Germany. These are sold at the main HFS chain. Cheapest tofu seems to be at a regular grocery store. Aldi is there, and we were getting some really good soy milk there, but not sure if they're still selling it.

Netto and Kaufland also sell pretty cheap tofu. With ALDI it depends if you're buying at ALDI south or north.
