The 25 Best German hamburgers

The 25 Best Burgers In Germany

The simple hamburger is easily one of the tastiest creations in the world; juicy, meaty and always reliable, it’s a relief for fellow greedy guts to know that German hamburgers are top class. It did originate in Hamburg, after all.

From the huge and monstrous burgers packed with toppings; street vendors cooking up simple patties right through to fine dining restaurants with their gourmet take on this American snack, we’ve come up with a list that has something for everybody.

All you need to do now is hit those beautiful Germany Auto-Bahn roads and start eating. Think of it as a road trip feast…
