    Drink beer and eat bratwurst!

    by sandravdp Written Mar 31, 2004
    Burgerhouses at Frischmarkt (try bratwurst here!)

    A clich?, but really german is to try german beer in large beerpuls and eat juicy bratwurst (German sausage) or try typically german sauerkraut (sauer cole with sausage on bread).
