Rudolph's

Highly recommend this restaurant on Poggenmühle 5. Gluten-Free pasta and pizza for normal prices! Delicious, everything we had. Not worried about cross contamination. I'm terribly sensitive to gluten and wheat and had no problem.

RomantikHotel Schloss Rheinfels
Sankt Goar, Rhineland-Palatinate View On Map
We stayed at the RomantikHotel Schloss Rheinfels overlooking the river. The hotel is adjacent to the ruins of a large and very old castle, and the parts of the ruins have been integrated into the hotel. We had a great time exploring the ruins and clambering over walls and through tunnels. The hotel restaurant, Auf Scharffeneck, had stunning views and excellent food. In fact, the gluten free bread they brought me here was the best I have ever had. It actually had the texture of real bread with a flakey crust. Wow.

We had breakfast in the restaurant the next morning and I asked them to find some more of that gluten free bread for me, which they did. Mmmmm. I had fresh warm bread and nutella. Yum. I also had the only decent cup of tea I had while I was in Germany. The buffet had all the usual things on it... juice, fruit, yogurt, cheeses and meats, and breads. They also made eggs to order. It was an excellent breakfast and you just can't beat that view.

Burg Colmburg Hotel
Colmberg, Bavaria View On Map
The Burg Colmburg Hotel is a 13th century castle that has been renovated and turned into a hotel. Can there be anything better than spending the night in a real castle? It was awesome. We ate dinner there the night we arrived, and our breakfast was included in the room price. The dining room had a medieval feel, without seeming like you were dining in a dungeon. I did my usual "I must eat gluten free" routine, and they assured me that nearly everything on the menu was gluten free. I ordered a veal cutlet and potatoes (which of course came with white asparagus!) It also came with copious amounts of gravy, so I was very nervous and asked the waiter to double check for me. He came back and said it was definitely gluten free, so I ate it. Ohhhhhh, so delicious. I very rarely get to have gravy, for obvious reasons. I didn't have any gluten reaction, so the chef was right. It was probably my most authentic German food on the whole trip. Yum, yum, yum!

The breakfast buffet was good, featuring all the standards we had come to expect -- fruit, brie (and other cheeses), and assortment of cold cuts (much saltier than their American counterparts), and soft boiled eggs. I highly recommend a stop here. It was the best hotel we stayed in, and so much fun, not to mention the good food.

Ambient Hotel Salzburger Hof
Giengen, Baden-Württemberg View On Map
We stayed at the Ambient Hotel Salzburger Hof. It was not a luxury hotel, but it was clean and charming, and we were able to get a room that slept four people. Choices were limited in Geingen, however, and we ended up eating at the hotel after all. What a good decision!! The food was simple German cuisine, perfectly executed. They not only understood "gluten-free" but actually brought be some gluten free bread! It was some type of whole grain brown bread and it was very good. I ordered a veal cutlet, which they prepared without breading or gravy, and it was served with potatoes and white asparagus. This was our first introduction to white asparagus on this trip, but it would not be our last. Apparently the Germans are crazy for white asparagus, as it was nearly every menu we saw for the rest of the trip. I still prefer green asparagus, but it was fun to have the white version for a change.

Breakfast was included in our stay, so in the morning we had more of that delicious GF bread (it took them quite a while to bring it -- they had intended to defrost it that morning, but forgot. We were not in a hurry, however, so I waited the 20 minutes it took to bake.) Of course, there was nutella to go with the bread, as well as my brie, which I gladly ate every morning. They also made my daughter some scrambled eggs, and there was plenty of fruit, so all in all an excellent breakfast.

Bobotie
Neumarkt, Cologne View On Map
Amazing South African food! The chef - who is African - came out to visit with us and ended up making the sauce especially for me without flour. I have no idea what it would taste like with the flour but without it was absolutely delicious - I'm convinced that I missed nothing! I had an antelope filet while others had ostrich and there was even crocodile. I highly recommend going here if you want a little variety along with high quality food (good value as well), full-flavor, nice atmosphere, and nice drinks.

Eis Voh Bundesallee
Friedenau, Berlin View On Map
This family-run cafe has a wide range of really yummy home-made gluten free cakes (offer about 7 every day) and also has glutenfree ice cream. Even though it's not anywhere near tourist attractions, it's worth going there!!! (Prices are inexpensive - less than 3euros a piece.) I dont know if they speak English.

Essen Fassen
Tiergarten, Berlin View On Map
The two men running the restaurant are really nice and definitely know what they are doing. I especially recomment the schnitzel so if you want to eat something typical German (they offer a glutenfree version). Prices are not cheap either but still okay. At lunchtime I heard it's quite packed. The restaurant is not far fromm the western city centre (Ku-Damm and Zoo).

Sauvage Sauvage
Treptow, Berlin View On Map
This restaurant does paleolithic cooking. This means that the whole restaurant is gluten free. It's yummy as well. Prices are not cheap for Berlin but still okay (for me as a student it's expensive because there are so many other places which are cheaper, but for "normal" working people and especially for English people prices are okay). You definitely need to make a reservation beforehand. Website is also available in English.

's Baggers
Boxdorf, Nürnberg View On Map
Our last road trip after three years in Germany was yesterday to Nuremberg. We were on a mission to finally see one last city and what better place to visit than a city with another gluten free restaurant, 's Baggers. We spent the afternoon on a quick walking tour of Old Town past all the market vendors and one specifically that caught my eye, a Gluten Free baked goods stand!! Wow, that was a first to see. We ended our walk at the Toy Museum, Spielzeugmuseum. Nuremberg is known for their wooden toys and trains and I knew the boys would love to see the trains.

A quick 15 minute drive from Old Town and we were at 's Baggers restaurant. I was told that this family restaurant would be fun for the kids and had a gluten free organic, Bio, menu, all of which I was excited about. When we arrived I felt like we had walked into a Fun Park... bright color, balloons, many levels and a rail system that you've got to see. This is not a train rail system but rather a food delivery system. Yep, the wait staff doesn't deliver anything but hot tea and coffee because both of those probably wouldn't make through the quick travel down the rails. Everything else on the menu is served in small pots hot from the kitchen! The food races down the rails directly to your seat and sometimes has a fireworks display during its travel. It was by far one of the craziest things I have seen and only in Germany, they are masters at engineering!

On to the menu... Each table has two computers and the entire menu is on the touch screen. It is like a Japanese Steak House style where you might share a table with strangers, adding to the fun. There are no paper menus and you order as you go Tapas style with a card system that allows you to pay at the end. All items on the menu that are gluten free are marked "GF" and if you want to see the entire GF menu you can do a search and all items will be brought up together. It is great to have a restaurant that does all the work identifying things for you, however the items on this menu that were GF were for the most part naturally GF. What I mean by that is they haven't taken the time replace things with any alternatives, not much creativity there. For instance, I order the GF Schnitzel, which I was pretty excited to see since that is a signature German dish that I'm never able to eat. I was expecting to see a gluten free breaded version but instead they just eliminated the breading (for sticking with the Paleo this was ideal). But not exactly schnitzel if you ask me. We also ordered the GF Potato cakes with GF dipping sauce and a white asparagus soup... Mmmm good! Again not too difficult to make potato cakes gluten free but the dipping sauces were awesome with no worries of hidden gluten.

Overall the food was fresh and delicious, the place was fun and the prices were reasonable. I highly recommend it! It was under a two hour drive from Stuttgart and we made it into a day trip which worked out great. I hope you all enjoy the experience.

Reiskorn
City Centre, Stuttgart View On Map
Yes, it is true... A gluten free restaurant right in our home town! Thanks to our friends for the recommendation, Chris and I enjoyed a great dinner date last Friday and tasted as many gluten free dishes that our tummies could handle.

Resikorn is simple to find by car or by taking the S-Bahn to the Stuttgart Stadtmitte stop. They are located at Torstrasse 27 Stuttgart-Mitte. You'll want to make a reservation because it is small and fills up fast. My sister would love this place... She lives in Portland, Oregon and when we walked in I felt like we were in her city. Very hip, in vogue, style to the space that welcomes you to a "living room" dining experience. The menu was over the top in English perfection. I'm not sure who they hired to do the German to English translation but this was the BEST I have seen in Europe! The details were so well written that my mouth was watering when I read them. You will be pleasantly surprised with their Asian Fusion menu. On the menu you will find a legend at the bottom with different color stars that annotate the following: gluten free, vegetarian, lactose containing and vegan. Genius!

We started the evening off with a little Bodegus El Meson red wine from Crianz, Spain with our soup appetizer, Spicy Siamese Noodle Soup, that we shared. Mmmmm delicious and great way to start the meal. Then came the Vietnamese Lucky Rolls (Spring Rolls) in chicken and duck. The chicken was by far the better choice especially the two dipping sauces that came with it. The duck was just kind of there, nothing wowing about it and the sauce not as good.

My main course was the Mongolian Beef in a Sake Flush and Chris had the Wild Cashew Chicken which was the better choice of the two. The beef dish was not what I was expecting. When I hear mongolian I think of grilled meat like when you go to a Korean BBQ restaurant but this meat was more like stew meat. So if you are in the mood for a Beef Stew then this is the dish for you. It was very tasty just not what I was hoping for. The Cashew Chicken was fantastic and exactly what you would want in this type of meal.

Since we did not consume the amount of rice on our plates we were ready for more. Just one more dish that sounded very interesting and inviting... Number 7, Vegetarian GF Crisp Rice-Schlupfer (doughs) stuffed with spinach and goat cheese. Now tell that doesn't sound like heaven. Anything with word dough has got to be good. :) And to top it off we shared the Chocolate Chili Creme Brulee. It was just the right size to share. If you are wondering about cost... very reasonably priced! I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Cafe Vux
Neukoln, Berlin View On Map
The (almost) holy-grail of my gluten-less search in Berlin, a place that has a permanent selection of glutenfrei, freshly baked goods (read cake and cupcakes). Now, they're not the be all and end all of gluten-less goods, they're are no sandwiches, cookies or anything as exotic as that. But, they are about the only place in Berlin that is making an effort and actually selling gluten free wares.

After a lengthy journey down into the bowels of Neukoln I arrived to a very busy little cafe. Fortunately I managed to grab the last seat in the place near to the window and set about perusing their two glass cases.

In one was a cake with a little tag containing the magical words "glutenfrei". I scouted some more, but alas this was the only offering with such a label. My heart sank a little, but after checking with the friendly woman behind the counter, I was assured that these were also gluten free.

Joy! I spent around 2.3 seconds debating whether to have a cupcake or the cake and decided on both. A large coffee order later and I was sat waiting for the goodies to arrive.

Ahh, it was everything that I'd hoped it would be. Chocolaty, just soft and moist enough with a generous dollop of yummy tasting icing on top. Needless to say it didn't last long and the couple sat next to me were a little disturbed by my groans of joy at consuming it.

I was also informed by the owner that in addition to what they had that day, there is usually a proper glutenfrei cream cake on the weekends! And that I just happened to come on a weekend when they didn't have one (probably good though, I would of definitely ordered all 3).

Cafe Hilde
Prenzlauer Berg, Berlin View On Map
Easily my favourite Pberg cafe, its relaxed, has comfy seats (a must in my mind), good coffee and free wifi (plus many power points). Gluten-less wise, they do have plenty of options for both breakfast and an evening meal.

Mostly the breakfasts do, alas, come with bread, but they're quite happy with you taking in your own gluten free variety (they have one regular who keeps a stock of it in their kitchen). Otherwise, there are soups and baked potatoes with various fillings. The owners are quite aware of people desiring Gluten-less food (plus they speak perfect English for those lacking of deutsch) so you don't have to worry about being served something with normal flour in when asking for wheat free.

As mentioned their coffee is most good and they usually have a seasonal drink or two on offer (pumpkin Chai Latte and cinamon hot chocolate have been the two most recent). Well worth a visit for coffee and delicious food.

They also have many events on each week, check out the listing on their website.

Alexander am Zoo
am Zoo, Frankfurt View On Map
I've stayed in this hotel both alone on business and with family (2 children) three times now. It's a great way to have a day of fun in Frankfurt before a 11-14 hour flight across the Atlantic. We love the location right next to the zoo (200 yards down Waldschmidtstrasse is the less crowded back entrance to the zoo). Several U-Bahn stations are nearby (the closest is Habsburgerstrasse), so you can quickly get to downtown, and 3 blocks away is the lively Berger Strasse with lots of restaurants, cafes, and shops. The hotel staff is extremely nice. They recognize us every time we show up, and once we even got an unexpected free upgrade to the Alexander Suite, which was wonderful. On my suggestion, Herr Franke made sure that the hotel now carries a small selection of gluten-free bread and Fruchte-Muesli (oatmeal with dried fruits) for breakfast to accommodate my family's food allergy. When I came for my third stay, booking online, he sent me a personal email to let me know I didn't have to bring my own bread this time. I enthusiastically recommend this hotel and look forward to staying there again the next time I am in Germany.

Nibelungenschaenke
Nibelungenallee, Frankfurt View On Map
Went there with a colleague because I read on a German coeliac site that this Greek restaurant, known as "Frankfurt's Edelgrieche" (Gourmet Greek), knew how to accommodate people who need to eat gluten-free. The server was indeed not only friendly but very familiar with the gluten-free diet and could recommend a number of dishes. I had a wonderful fish dish and salad outside on their beautiful patio, and I'd highly recommend this restaurant. The menu seems to change every two months, so it makes sense to check out their menu online.
