Berlin Vegan is up again with a new design :-)

I don't know anything in Ulm even though I grew up down there in the south... but be sure to climb onto the cathedral tower!! :-) It is soooo beautiful. Oh, and on June 8th, there is the Vegan Street Day in Stuttgart which is close to Ulm :-) http://www.vegan-street-day.de/

Hey all - I will be visiting Berlin with my guy the end of May/first week of June. What vegan restaurants are must-see?

I checked out this link: http://www.berlin-vegan.de/
which seems to be shut down : ( I know this is a long shot, but is there an equivalent site for Berlin vegan activities, restaurants, etc.?

For example, I use this website quite a bit at home, and here are the listing it cites for Berlin - do these seem pretty accurate? http://www.vegguide.org/region/60

Finally, I realize this is very random, but I also will be in Ulm for a week - any vegan tips/suggestions there?


Berlin is vegan heaven! I wrote a big long post with some pictures about my favorite vegan places in Berlin, perhaps that would be helpful? Here's the link:

http://vegannomnoms.net/2012/10/berlin-vegan-guide.html

#shamelessselfpromotion

Otherwise Berlin Vegan is pretty good once the site is working again, I'd also recommend liking them on Facebook as they post about vegan happenings quite often. Otherwise I find Foursquare very useful for finding vegan things if you have a smart phone and of course Happy Cow! Enjoy!

I'm going with some friends for 4 days and I have 2 questions: where could we go for brunch and what else should we do other than stuff our faces?

what kind of things do you enjoy?

theres a lot of brunch options but you need to book in advance. I've only been to Viasko and it was good all 3 times but it was a long time ago and they became really weird and snobbish/unfriendly. There's also a French café that offers brunch and others I haven't been to, so I can't really tell you which one is great. My friends used to love the brunch at my favourite café Vux.

I just went to Kopps in Mitte for the first time for brunch and it was the best one I've been to yet! Otherwise I quite enjoy the brunch at Pele Mele. For Kopps you need to make a reservations, I think for Pele Mele as well. It's quite easy though and they should speak English if you don't know any German.

Oh La La also has a vegan and gluten-free brunch Sat and Sundays if that's your thang.

As for stuff to do, go hang out at the Tempelhofer Feld. It's a park that used to be an airport and it's awesome and has lots of cure quirky community gardens. Also check out the abandoned amusement park (Google it), it's pretty cool. I general just riding a bike around Berlin is super nice, so it's worth renting one or checking out Bike Surf Berlin to rent an affordable one.

I have a general question! I'm planning to head to Berlin for 3 or 4 nights in either late September of early October. I think I'm going to book an airbnb, but I was wondering if any of you can recommend good areas of town/neighborhoods to stay in? All I can really tell so far is that Mitte is the touristy area. It sounds like it would be easy enough to base myself there, but I'm probably not going to be all that interested in a lot of touristy stuff, so maybe I'd be happier in a different area. Any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks! :)

Neukölln, Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg are the obvious ones - tons of food, activity, life, etc. I rate them in that order :)

I stayed in Kreuzberg a couple of weeks back and thought it was nice, we could walk to some of the attractions from our apartment.

Do you guys know which pet store chains don't sell live animals? Or alternatively, where I can buy dog food online that is not terrible? (I usually buy Terra Canis for wet food and Orijen or Nutram for dry food).

Anyone have any hotel recommendations for Berlin? I have a friend I was originally planning on staying with, but it looks like she'll be moving around the time I'm there, and I don't want to stress her out further than I'm sure she'll already be stressed out. I've tried to book 4 Air bnbs, and they've all been declined (I don't know what that's about - the ones I booked in London and Budapest were no problem). I'm ready to throw in the towel and just get a hotel. I'd like to stay in Neukoln or Kreuzberg. Any recommendations? Not anything super fancy, but I'm also not going to do a hostel or whatever.

Danke!

jordanpattern, this one (vegetarian, organic; optional vegan or even raw) is in Friedrichshain (which is also a lively neighborhood and has lots of vegan options): http://www.almodovarhotel.de/

There is another vegetarian one in Köpenik (http://www.essentis-biohotel.de/). Seems a little esoteric to me ;-) and it is not as central of course.

I have not tested the hotels - there is a website called http://www.veggie-hotels.com/

Hi, we are travelling the Berlin for 4 days and then To Hamburg for 2 nights, there appears to be much choice in terms of restaurants. What are the 'must go to' restaurants in both of these fabulous looking city, as I really don't want to miss out.
Thanks in advance
Si

In Hamburg I highly recommend Leaf (Eulenstrasse, in Altona / Ottensen neighborhood). It's quite fancy, with seasonal menus and I've never been disappointed there. Second place at the top of my list would be Mamalicious (Max Brauer allee, beginning of Sternschanze neighborhood). It's a vegetarian and vegan all-day-breakfast place, and they also do great burgers. My third top recommendation is Saints and Sinners (Talstrasse, Reeperbahn / St Pauli area). I haven't been there in a while but I remember pretty delicious seitan BBQ ribs.

If you want to try something "traditional", both Schmidt (in Sternschanze) and Der Wurstman (in Altona) do vegan currywurst (both are snack bars, and currywurst is not my favorite food but hey). And the very cute Zum Spaetzle (Wexstrasse, Stadthausbruecke area) does very nice southern German food, with always at least one vegan menu.

Finally, not a restaurant, but the cocktail bar Clouds, in the Reeperbahn, is high on the list of places I take visitors. It's on the top floor of an office building and offers a gorgeous view of the harbor. Get there early and preferably on a week night if you want a chance to sit down and still have some daylight.

Just found out the semester I'm doing my semester abroad in (Passau) has a vegan restaurant despite only having a population of 50,000.

It dpeends on what your looking for, really.

Burrito Baby, vegetarian place with best vegan taco salad & burritos & tacos

Café Vux - vegan brazilian café, cakes & great bagels

Freckles - another really good vegan café

Viasko - vegan restaurant, very tasty but mostly it's full and you have to call ahead

Mio Matte - vegan italian restaurant

Kopps - "high class" dining. I really dislike the atmosphere, I always feel like the waiters look down on me but the food is good

Thanks again for all the suggestions.will be adding them all to our ever expanding list. What would be a good suggestion for a breakfast spot during the week, a cooked to order rather than a buffet?

(vegan) places are scarcely open for brekky, so options are lighter on that front. pêle mêle have a good range of options, madame zucker do pancakes in various ways, café treibholz do decent focaccia/sandwichy things, fraulein wilde does a decent breakfast plate

they're mostly neukölln-ish..not sure where you're staying though :)

I also suggest Viasko brunch! I haven't had Kopps though. You could do Viasko brunch one weekend day and Kopps the other ;)

Do you guys know of any (good / outstanding / your favorite for whatever reason) vegan cookbooks in German? I am not feeling inspired by the whole "vegan for fit" series. I did stumble upon a copy of "Vegane Cupcakes erobern die Welt" the other day but I'd rather get something in the original language!

Does it have to be something on paper?

I googled a bit and found this one http://tierrechtskochbuch.de/ (seems digital only)
or one of these http://neu.vegan.at/categories/kochb%C3%BCcher-0
or
https://www.vgt.at/shop/index.php?k2=5

Or ask Mihl?
