It may be a surprise to some to read that curried sausages, or currywurst, is one of the most popular snacks in Berlin.

Germany is renowned for its love of sausages and adding a curry sauce, to make currywurst, seems a natural thing to do.

Berlin is so much in love with the snack that they eat over 70 million portions in a year.

The snack was invented in 1949 by a German housewife, called Herta Charlotte Heuwer, and a plaque is at the corner of Kant and Kaiser Friedrich Streets (in Berlin) where Herta first made the popular snack.

Nowadays there are over 200 currywurst stands and shops in Berlin where you can buy this hot and spicy sausage. Like all good fast foods, it is cheap, quick to make and tasty.
