Berlin is famous for its vibrancy and seductive nightlife but have you
ever wondered what Berlin tastes like?
When you think of German food it is most likely Pretzels, beer and sausage that come to mind. However, the modern German and in particular the modern Berliner does not survive on Oktoberfest fare alone, and on this tour we will show you the true Berlin food experience.

HI, I’M SAM AND THERE ARE TWO THINGS in the world I love most: FOOD AND TALKING ABOUT FOOD.
I moved to Berlin with my German Partner 7 years ago. Since then, my passion for food and the culinary scene in this great city has exploded!
Bite Berlin is my way of sharing this love of food with all of you. And I am really excited about taking like-minded food lovers to the hidden corners of Berlin to enjoy the most exciting food experiences this city has to offer.
As much as I love talking to people about food, I also love to cook for others as well. That's why I host supper clubs in my cosy Neukölln apartment. Some of my recent events have included a mix of Indian, Mexican and Vegan cuisine. Check back here on the website for more info on one of my upcoming supper clubs (or just ask me after a tour!)
When I’m not entirely preoccupied with filling my greedy tum, you can find me at Zumba, doodling, watching Made in Chelsea or looking at pictures of Nina Dobrev on Instagram.
Helga, originally from beautiful Stockholm, Sweden, fell in love with Berlin after completing her education at The Royal Swedish Ballet School in 2005.
And she has lived here ever since!
Making a career as a Performance Artist and Stunt Woman, she also has a passion for all things food- and it runs in the family with her Grandfather being the legendary Swedish chef Tore Wretman, who set the tone for the Swedish culinary landscape.
When she is not stepping in for Tom Cruise, she loves to show other foodies this wonderful citys most scrumptious spots!
So come on, lets go Bite Berlin together!
+ Where does the tour begin/ end?
We start at Hackescher Markt S-bahn station opposite the Häagen Dazs ice cream shop and finish in Prenzlauer Berg (10/15 mins from start-point). I will be able to give directions to wherever you wish to head to from there.
+ How many people on the tour?
We think the best way to enjoy this foodie adventure is in small groups so never more than 10 people.
+ How long is the tour?
The tour is roughly 3 hours, depending on the group size and our pace, the time may vary a little.
+ How will I recognize the guide?
We don’t like gaudy signs, umbrellas and all that jazz. We prefer to blend in with the locals and not scream 'we’re tourists!'. Therefore, we do not use any signs at all. There is a photo of me on the About page.
+ What happens if we’re late?
Please try to be on time! However we understand being late happens so we do wait at the start point for 10 minutes before we move on. I have my phone on me so you can try and call to catch up.
+ So we just walk around eating food?
Yep! And we love it. We will also learn a lot about Berlin’s wealth of history and culture as we munch.
+ How much walking is there, will I keep up?
There is a certain amount of walking but we go at a nice relaxed pace. Our tastings are a good balance of sit down situations and eating on the go.

Yep! Rain or shine the tour will go ahead. Be prepared for the weather conditions and we’ll be fine.
+ How much food is served?
There will be 6 food tastings plus 2 drinks on the tour.
+ What kind of food is it?
Delicious food! There will be a mixture of traditional German/Berliner cuisine and also a taste of the other cultures that have made Berlin their home.

Please let us know as soon as you make a booking and I’ll do my best to tailor the tour to your needs.

Yes! Let me know as you make a booking and I will tailor the tour to your needs. Alternatively you could book a private tour and I can do a bespoke veggie/vegan version.
+ Can I book a private tour/ bespoke tour?
Yes, contact me with the details and I’ll do my best to accommodate your needs.
+ Are kids allowed?
Yes, kids are more than welcome! If your child is very little and will not be eating then of course there is no need to purchase a ticket. If you have a hungry munchkin who will take part in the food tasting then we ask that you purchase the reduced student priced ticket.
+ Are drinks included?
Two drinks are included with the price of the ticket. Any additional should be covered by the guest.
+ Are cameras allowed?
Yes and taking photos is encouraged!

Definitely! You can always learn something new and eating with new people is always a good thing.

With pleasure! Though of course not mandatory.
Bite Berlin chooses to donate a portion of every ticket sale to the Berliner Tafel, the food bank in Berlin. This is our way of giving something back to a society, where food is not always so easily accessible.
The Berliner Tafel goes to great efforts to feed those that are unprivileged and also run programs educating children about food. The difference they have made to lives in need is fantastic and with our donation we can help, just a little, for them to continue.
You can find out more about the Berliner Tafel and the work they do here
We also work closely with Vostel, an awesome organisation that strive to connect people with many volunteering opportunities. You can find out more here
