Are you looking for some insider’s tip of spots to enjoy an original German food experience – relating to either typical food in a specific area, factory sales, nice brand stores or even visits to the production site?

There are numerous possibilities and I will suggest a few, some of them might be rarely found in a city guide, following the geographical line from cities north to south.
