German Menu Ideas

Typical German Dishes That Go Together

German dishes shine when served with their traditional sides. Typical German suppers, served at 1 pm, include fresh fruit or compote for dessert ​and leave the cake and other sweets for coffee time late in the afternoon. This is a good way to eat well but not overeat, especially if you visit Germany.

A popular German saying is "Nach dem Essen soll man ruhen, oder tausend Schritte tun", which means "After eating, either take a nap or a walk." You may want to follow this advice after enjoying one of the menus below.
