German Sausages – a mouthwatering Choice

Germans love sausages, especially popular is a large selection of different types of sausages presented in sliced cuts called “Aufschnitt“: Blutwurst (blood sausage), Gelbwurst (yellow-skinned sausage), Leberkäse (meatloaf), Bierschinken (ham), Paprikawurst (paprika sausage), Salami, Mortadella, ….

available in portions of usually about 150-200 gramms, lovingly and expertly presented  by the staff at the local butcher’s shop or the deli counter at the supermarket.

There is even a German dog called ‘Sausage Dog’ (Dackel). They are also well known for the particularly soulful expression in their eyes, the “Dackelblick” (no, that’s not because they worry about their fate!  (Note: They are not turned into sausages, they just look like one.)
