Curry 36

Located in the heart of Kreuzberg, Curry 36 is a legendary spot that has been serving up delicious currywurst since 1981. This place is often buzzing with both locals and tourists, all eager to get a bite of their famous currywurst. The sausages are perfectly grilled, topped with a generous helping of curry ketchup, and served with a side of crispy fries. It’s a must-visit for anyone looking to experience one of the best wursts in Berlin.

Konnopke’s Imbiss, situated under the elevated U-Bahn tracks at Eberswalder Straße, is another iconic destination for currywurst lovers.
