"My family and I have been on many Eating Europe food tours and we were excited to explore East Berlin with Clara as our guide today! We learned so much and tasted so many delicious foods and drinks at places we likely wouldn’t have found on our own! Highly recommend to anyone who’s excited to dive into Berlin’s local food, beer and culture.  "

- Stephanie (TripAdvisor Review)

“This tour took us to a part of the city we likely wouldn’t have visited on our own. Great commentary on the area and history of Berlin in general as well as really good food. Several food items I wouldn’t have guessed were part of Germany’s heritage but we were FULL at the end and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Clara was full of interesting bits about the area and the food.”

My favourite dessert is a Spritzkuchen, it’s an eggy German donut covered in icing sugar.
