My very first nitrogen-frozen ice cream @WOOP WOOP, Berlin (DE)

It’s time for another recommendation in Berlin! Woop Woop makes the freshest ice cream ever! They prepare the basis of their ice cream with milk, cream, fruit, chocolate, herbs or spices before adding liquid nitrogen (-196°C) to freeze the mixture in 30 seconds, in front of customers. The most fun ice cream experience I recently…

Ice cream street art… in Cologne (DE)

I will keep it short today: you’ll have to be a little more patient until I publish my next recommendation of a nice ice cream shop. Today I’ll just share with you a photo of ice cream street art that I came across and liked! I spotted it in Cologne near an ice cream shop…

Il Gelato di Ferigo, Cologne (DE)

I love Il Gelato di Ferigo’s motto: “Healthy, natural and particularly creamy ice cream” (translated from German). Under this motto they pride themselves for using fresh and natural ingredients and they avoid using artificial flavours and preservatives. The Italian-owned Il Gelato di Ferigo ice cream shop has been in Cologne since 1994 and offers an…

California Pops, Berlin (DE)

During my last visit to Berlin, a friend of a friend took us to California Pops’ small shop in Kreuzberg. Their popsicles looked very attractive: colourful, shiny and frost-free. Not only did they look wonderful, they tasted great too! It’s nice to know that the handmade popsicles at California Pops are free of artificial colourings…

Cafe Riffelmacher, Bamberg (DE)

I came across Cafe Riffelmacher years ago, upon one of my first visits to the beautiful city of Bamberg in Northern Bavaria and I was directly attracted by the unusual flavours of ice cream they sold: lavender, Japanese rice, apple-cinammon, plum, poppyseed, caipirinha, chili-chocolate… On their website they pride themselves for making ice cream with…

Der verrückte Eismacher, Munich (DE)

My first encounter with the “mad ice cream maker” from Munich (=Der verrückte Eismacher) was actually in Berlin and involved me being offered a sample of Döner ice cream (yes yes you got that right: Turkish/German kebab ice cream..!) Although free things somehow always taste better, I politely declined and tried the beer and roasted…

Eispatisserie Hokey Pokey, Berlin (DE)

I came across Hokey Pokey via some online lists of Berlin’s best ice cream: I had a bit of spare time & made the most of it by going on a little trip to Prenzlauer Berg in the north-east of Berlin. Over the years I’ve been to Berlin many times: during my first visits I…

Mos Eisley & the nearby Tempelhof Field, Berlin (DE)

This is the first of a series of six recommendations for ice cream in Berlin. I have gathered the feeling that Berlin is paradise for ice cream lovers: they have many really good ice cream shops and the ice cream is relatively cheap in comparison to other European countries! To make sure not to miss…
