Must Read Berlin Vegan Guide: Restaurants, Shops, & More for 2024

Updated February 6, 2024

Berlin is an exciting city, and being a vegan there is a treat!

I’ve had the opportunity to visit the city twice and feel like its a place where you can easily spend a week and not feel ready to pack it up (plus eating all that fantastic vegan food in a week is tough). If someone says they were bored in Berlin, I’d check their pulse.

This Berlin vegan guide is full of great restaurant suggestions, plus things to do, suggestions on where to stay, and so much more. One last thing, if you’re feeling a little anxious about traveling as a vegan, be sure to check out my vegan travel tips!

What To Do in Berlin

There is no shortage of great things to do in Berlin! In addition to these ideas, there are also a ton of fantastic free things to do in Berlin + a fantastic vegan food tour with locals!

Take a walking tour

There is so much to learn and see in Berlin! A walking tour is a great way to see the sights and learn about various topics — WWII, Cold War, art, and vegan food — there is something for everyone. We did a half-day WWII tour, and it was well worth it. You also get the opportunity to talk with someone who lives there and get their feedback on things to do and see. Here are a couple of tour options, including the one that we did:

brandenburg gate with people walking and riding bikes at dusk

Visit the Topography of Terror

This exhibition is in the former headquarters of the Secret State Police, the SS, and the Reich Security Main Office. Multiple permanent collections examine through photos and documents the site’s history, the crimes the SS and Third Reich committed, and propaganda used to perpetuate terror. Guided tours are available; if you go on your own, don’t miss the audio guide. It’s essential.

Pay tribute at The Berlin Wall

Located on Bernauer Straße, this memorial is the last piece of the Berlin Wall that once divided the country. Also, consider adding on a half-day tour of East Berlin.

Check out beautiful works of at at The Pergamonmuseum

One of the most popular museums in Berlin — which means buy your tickets in advance! Many are drawn here to see the Pergamon Altar and the Ishtar Gate, but there is a lot of beautiful Middle Eastern art and antiquities to check out.

Wander the Berlin Botanical Garden

A beautiful place to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city. It is the second-largest botanical garden in the world and is filled with over 20,000 plant species. Fun fact: the park started as a kitchen garden, growing vegetables and hops, and has since evolved into a vibrant collection of plants, including some that are endangered!

Berlin Botanical Gardens

Grab lunch or a snack at Markthalle IX (Market Hall Nine) 

A historic market in the heart of Kreuzberg filled with a variety of gastronomic delights! There is a weekly market Tuesday – Thursday and Saturday that features a wide range of produce, baked goods, and more. Every Thursday evening, there is an international street food market. It’s a great place to grab a snack or have dinner — we did find some tasty vegan tacos and a stuffed tofu dish.
