Delicious Food in the North of Germany

We’ve discussed Germany here on Malorie’s Adventures many, many times before, but I have never brought up the North of Germany, an area with its own unique charm, an area that is distinguishably different from the south. While the south of Germany most definitely has nature and warm sunny days, the north of Germany has a lot of fishing towns, a unique elemental nature all its own, and, oh yeah, delicious seafood and sustainable meals! In this article, I’m going to discuss some of my favorite meals and the delicious food I had across the North of Germany! I hope you’re hungry!

Pier 6, Bremerhaven


Right off the sparkling harbor in Bremerhaven, you’ll find Pier 6. At first glance, you may just think that this cozy chic restaurant is solely a modern, upper-class establishment, but it’s so much more than that. I was immediately impressed and blown away because the owner not only came over to speak with us, but he actually waited on us personally and picked out a couple of wines for our group, personally. His father worked selling fish, and his grandfather caught fish, so he took that and went above what he knew to make his own restaurant, using local fish from the region, local supplies, and pushing sustainability in all his practices. He is also a hobby sommelier, so be sure to ask for his wine-pairing recommendations. So, if you’re in Bremerhaven, I would definitely recommend Pier 6.

We were served a delicious filet of cod fish with herb-risotto, wild broccoli, and asparagus ragout saffron-espuma (and for the vegetarians there was a cauliflower variant), and not only was the presentation exceptional, but the food was exquisite.


It’s important to note, if you’re in Bremerhaven for more than one night, the Restaurant STROM can be found inside the Atlantic Hotel Sail City, and it’s quite the sustainable dining location, as well. They have a  packaging-neutral breakfast buffet for guests and mostly work with regional supply partners. They served a delicious Bruschetta and Surf and Turf that is most definitely worth a mention! And the photo above shows how perfect the evening view is. Or, if you visit Klimahaus while in Bremerhaven, they, too, have a restaurant onsite with meals that are quite delicious and sustainable, too! This whole region of Germany really celebrates sustainability and working with local partnerships, and I am absolutely excited to share that.

Markthalle Acht, Bremen


If you’re in Northern Germany, a trip to Bremen must not be missed! It’s a classic, charming, and vibrant place to visit. And like many Old Town City Centers in Germany, Bremen has a Markthalle, which is basically a food-court style meal setup with many different stands offering a variety of cuisines. If you’re feeling Asian food, hit up the Asian food stands, if you want a burger and fries, hit up the burger and fry stand. There are coffee stands and food stands available to satisfy any type of style and taste. This is especially important to consider if you’re traveling in a group, as that way each person can happily get the meal they are feeling. Plus, I love cafeteria-style dining, personally!

Milchhalle, Wilsede

If you find yourself up in the Lüneburg Heath hiking the nature preserve, or perhaps, you are taking a nice carriage ride through the countryside, you should definitely aim to arrive in Wilsede for lunch where you can enjoy delicious food and fresh-baked goodies at Milchhalle. While their vegetable skewers were extremely delicious with just the right amount of spicy and sweet (there were pineapples on the skewers which not only came as a surprise but were also extremely delicious), the real treat here was their fresh-baked items.

From the fluffy, delicious bread that came with the meal to the cake desserts we were given, Milchhalle really impressed me with their cozy, small-town ambiance and deliciously home-baked treats. After all, only 60 people live in the town so it’s a true adventure out of a storybook. I would definitely recommend making this a stop on your adventures as you tour the Lüneburg Heath.
