Eating Kosher in Berlin

Contact us

For those of you who keep kosher, we're happy to provide a list of the various (although not many) places in Berlin that offer kosher meals/food, divided into two sections: “Restaurants and Cafés” and “Kosher Groceries”.

Some general remarks:

  • Just like in other countries, there are different kosher certificates used by different businesses, issued by different rabbis or organizations, not necessarily local (some owners prefer to be in contact with Israeli rabbis rather than with those based in Berlin). We don't take sides, so to keep things simple, this list is based on the owners' own statements. If you want to go into the fine details, you can contact the owners directly, using the details provided here.

  • The phone numbers are written with Germany's international prefix for you to call from abroad. If you're calling from Germany, it's just 030 and the restaurant's specific number.

  • The train stations are often named after adjacent streets, so don't be confused when they don't have the same name as the restaurant's streets. The stations are termed U for the U-Bahn lines and S for the S-Bahn lines.

  • The sites and attractions listed as adjacent are meant to help you know what kind of kosher places are around you while you're touring the city, so you won't have to travel especially to these places just to have a quick bite or buy some kosher snacks.

  • We keep closed places listed here as well. The reason is that many people read about them elsewhere, e.g. in old books. This way, they can know that information is outdated.

  • For your convenience, we created Google maps marking the various businesses. We use blue markers for the active, red for the inactive businesses.

Hofpfisterei

This is a chain of Bavarian bakeries from Munich that has quite a few branches in Berlin. Some, though not all of their bread and pastry products are kosher. Check the list here: http://www.chabadberlin.de/media/pdf/618/Glpu6184040.pdf

We've marked their locations in the map below.


Blue makers stand for active, red markers for inactive businesses.

Green markers stand for branches of Hofpfisterei:

Please note that you can also find some (not many) kosher products in other, not specifically Jewish business, such as the big department stores (KaDeWe, Karstadt, Galeria Kaufhof). In those places, kosher products might not be marked as such on the German labels. If you're doing your Shabbes in Berlin and looking for kosher wine for kiddush, you'll find some in the Ulrich supermarket at the West Berlin train station “Zoologischer Garten". The Galeria Kaufhof department store at Alexanderplatz has a nice selection of kosher wines. You could also use the lists of kosher products available and here (in English) and here (in German).

If you have more questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.
