Hello all, I have a friend who is spending a month in Europe and will be departing out of Germany (specifically, Munich). If I were to ask him to grab a few vegan-friendly things for me that are impossible to find in the US, what would you guys recommend asking for? I don't want him to have to go out of his way, and I don't expect him to pack anything larger than a couple of snacks/candy bars, so anything small that could be found at most grocery or convenience stores would be great.

Thanks for any suggestions you might have!

Oh! I should have mentioned, I can get Manner at my local grocery store, so it's not a super special treat.

Can you get Vego chocolate bars in the US? If not, them.

Yogurt!

Can you get Wheaty products in the US? I like their Spacebars - vacuum packed, ready to eat dry sausages.

Any organic store will also have dozens and dozens of types of vegan sausages (wiener, bratwurst, weißwurst, thuringer, salami...), usually just as many as meat-based ones.

Can you get vegan pâté / liverwurst?

All those products can be found in any organic store (which are abundant here) and in many supermarkets (not the discount ones, but Rewe & Edeka will carry them).

Hey folks, my bff and I are traveling to Berlin next May. Any recommendations of areas we should either aim for or avoid as far as accommodation goes?

Thanks for the suggestions, dudes! I don't want to put him out of his way, so I don't want to request anything that needs to be chilled. I asked for some vego bars, some spacebars, and sent a photo of a dark chocolate spread that Vegannomnoms found at a big grocery chain that I hope he can find because HOLY MOLY DROOOOL.

He gets back next Monday night and I'm his ride home from the airport, so hopefully I have some yummy snacks soon!

As per suggestions in this forum (thanks again!) I tried the vegan cafés Treibholz and Freckles in Berlin. I really liked the atmosphere and food at Treibholz, but a little bit less at Freckles (although the decor was super cute). There was no wifi at Freckles so not ideal if you're going there to work. Kreuzberg, where Freckles is located, seems like a great place to be a vegan; saw a lot a of vegan places or places advertising vegan options, and the whole vibe is really pleasant. Also, went for dinner at Vaust, which is also a microbrewery, and I very much enjoyed it. I had their dark beer, pumpkin ravioli, and chocolate cake with chocolate ganache. Although not a budget place, it was worthwhile and not outrageously priced, plus the owners seem very nice.

They only have two, light and dark, I tasted both, and they're both good! Especially the light.

I'm going back to Berlin next weekend and I've got the food covered (though I'm gutted that Lucky Leek is closed for the weekend, I really wanted to give it a try), but I'm looking for some good art. We like the impressionists and modern stuff that's not too weird. Any recommendations?

Any recommendations for Leipzig or Dresden? Heading their this summer before I do a two week German course in Berlin (I know where's good to eat there!).

I've only been for a daytrip to Dresden, and I was disappointed that I couldn't fit in more vegan eateries - there were quite a few. We had amazing, gigantic burgers at Falscher Hase and delicious cake at V Cake Cafe.

We are spending the next few months in Leipzig. I am sort of overwhelmed (in a good way) by all the vegan products! What vegan brands and foods should I definitely try?
