German Phrases for Vegan Travellers (make vegan travel easy!)

Make vegan travel easy with our handy phrases for Germany

On the surface, Germany (home of the Bratwurst) doesn’t appear to be very vegan-friendly.

However, step one foot into Berlin, and you’ll soon think otherwise. It is a true mecca for veganism and we believe it is even a contender for ‘vegan capital’ (although we still think London gets the top spot here!)

It has even spread outside of Berlin, so you’ll be able to find vegan options all around the country, in restaurants and supermarkets.

If you are ever feeling uncertain, just use our handy phrases! Either print the illustrations from the gallery above, or copy and paste the written phrases from below.
