As it’s such a hugely multicultural city, Berlin’s street food scene is undoubtedly one of the best in Europe. If you’re a new student, it’s a great way to get to know the different neighbourhoods and, perhaps, discover new favourites! From German classics to Middle Eastern wonders, the BIMM Berlin team has shared their most beloved food markets in the city so you can explore them first-hand.
Celebrating Street Food Thursdays from 5pm to 10pm weekly, this place is almost always packed with hungry explorers and locals seeking out weird and wonderful snacks. We’d recommend the giant Asian rice rolls, BBQ brisket sandwiches and, of course, the doughnuts. Sublime.
Turkish Market at Maybachufer
This idyllic market sits on the banks of Landwehr Canal, and with the large Turkish population in Berlin, you know the food here is authentic. It’s not too far from BIMM, smells incredible, and there’s arguably the best bread in the city for all you carb-lovers (plus three avocados for €1!).
Laksa Street Market
With plenty of vegan and veggie options, this Tuesday-only pop-up specialises in mouthwatering Malaysian cuisine, particularly noodle soup. This is legitimate street food at its finest, and definitely worth a visit.
Korean Street Food
Get a taste of the South Korean street food culture at Schönhauser Allee’s intimate Pojangmacha. Running until the early hours, this colourful market is one of the best places to take your time and appreciate your food – perfect when you’ve had a stressful day of rehearsals.
Tucked away by the river next to summer hotspot Badeschiff, Bite Club has the best of Berlin’s local quisines. An unreal selection of whiskey and craft beers is complemented by unbelievable food – plus diners are welcome to hop aboard the vintage Hoppetosse boat to enjoy their snacks.
