Berlin Bakeries

They’re like fast food joints in the US. There’s one on just about every corner in Berlin (and maybe two more in between). The bakery. It’s not surprising then that Germany is one of the world’s highest per capita consumers of bread. If breakfast comes with your room, you’ll probably get an introduction to the beloved brötchen (a bread roll) there. But don’t count on that to be representative (or even a good example of) German bread. There are a notoriously high number of under-par bakeries in Berlin — in comparison to other German cities, that is. Good German bread is spectacular, including everything from plane-Jane white rolls to dense, multigrain options that are basically a meal all by themselves.
