Nuremberg sausages with sauerkraut and potatoes is an authentic, traditional German plate – oh, I cannot tell how good it is… I wish I had some right now 🙂
Nuremberg sausages with sauerkraut and mashed potatoes in Cologne, Germany
It was a rainy spring day, but not bad enough to keep us inside. After all we were here to see everything, and walking on the streets of Cologne (Köln) is nice every time of the year. At lunch hour we happened to pass by this specific colorful German restaurant, not far from the boardwalk along the Rhine River.
- They were serving Nuremberg sausages, which became one of my favorite meals since I first had them in Nuremberg (Nürnberg).
I was attracted by the reddish wooden chairs and tables and the large inviting open windows, traditionally decorated with red Geranium flowers, and of course by the menu… 🙂
Peeking through one of the windows, I admired the creative way the silverware and napkins were arranged inside the ceramic beer mugs. Well, in Germany it would be a shame not to taste the delicious world-renowned beer along with traditional German food.
… And if you are curious, this is how this casual restaurant looks like, in between the peak hours:
As a vegetarian, my husband had his beer with a traditional German pretzel (also called Bretzle), sprinkled with some grains of salt.
But in Germany you can have Nuremberg sausages almost everywhere. You can have them at kiosks, in breweries, and in small or large restaurants.
Now, the sausages don’t necessarily have to be from Nuremberg. There are many kinds of delicious sausages in this country and they are almost always served with sauerkraut.
Nuremberg sausages can be also served with just mustard and bread, as a snack to go with your beer.
Oh, I love Germany and the German cuisine. I can get the whiff the sausages and sauerkraut only be looking at the picture. – I better stop thinking abut this 🙂
