Phallic. Fun. Fein. The Currywurst Museum.

47/365 Playing with sausage at the curry wurst museum. Had a freaking BLAST. #365days

Phallic. Fun. Fein. The Currywurst Museum.

Nothing says a good time like a good ol’ sausage couch.


I’m not sure exactly what we were thinking but it definitely wasn’t this.


Currywurst is a cultural staple in Germany. With humble beginnings in Berlin, Herta Heuwer was able to attain curry, ketchup, and Worcestershire sauce from British troops on the black market during World War II. Little did she know it would turn into the craze that it is today. I’m pretty sure she didn’t envision a building decorated in inflatable ketchup and curry wallpaper.

And while it was a bit pricey for about an hour of childish giggles, it was TOTALLY worth it. I mean, when else are you going to be able to get pictures like this?

    I just had to make this visit as well. Just couldn’t resist (plus it got me out of the snow for a while.) And surprisingly, I also found it rather enjoyable!

      YESSSSSSSSS! It. Was. AWESOME. Did you get the currywurst plate after?

      • Brett Domue April 25, 2013 at 5:01 pm #

        Why yes, yes I did. How could I resist. Of course, my phone ran out of juice as I was finishing up my photos of the samples 🙁 Quite an interesting difference in the flavors and textures…

    STOP! That couch is seriously the funniest, most provocative thing I’ve ever seen!

    • Erica April 10, 2013 at 5:31 pm #

      RIGHT?! I should have done a tiger claw pose.

    Even better than the Phallic Museum in Iceland.

      …it is weird that I’m drawn to these things. 😛

    OK, I know where I’m going when I visit Berlin.

    • Erica April 10, 2013 at 5:35 pm #

      Oh there is SO MUCH for you to see.

  6. Andi of My Beautiful Adventures March 26, 2013 at 3:52 pm #

    Haha I didn’t even know this existed! My hubby would have loved this place!!

  7. Des @ Ditch the Degree March 26, 2013 at 6:55 pm #

    Yeah.. I wanna sit in the sausage couch too.
    It’s really nice and cute.

    • Erica April 10, 2013 at 5:36 pm #

      UmmmHmmm… It was amazing and I feel like my life has changed knowing this exists.

    I also think it’s a bit expensive…. but SOOOOOOO cool! I want to hug Frech Fries as well!!!!
    And indeed, the coolest photos!

    • Erica April 10, 2013 at 5:37 pm #

      I totally understand. I had wanted to go to this museum for some time so I was willing to pay the cost to get in. I think the sausage couch alone is worth it. 😛

      • Sofie April 11, 2013 at 1:33 am #

        Was it comfi? If it was comfi, it definitely was wordt it:D

  9. Alex April 3, 2013 at 12:43 am #

    Amazing! I’m a sucker for kitsch, so I would love this place despite not really loving currywurst 🙂

    • Erica April 10, 2013 at 5:39 pm #

      YES. So you understand my glee when it comes to things like this. Who in their right mind decided to make a MUSEUM?

  10. Pete April 3, 2013 at 3:31 am #

    MeatWater? Tell me you tried it?!?!

  11. Abby April 5, 2013 at 11:09 pm #

    Hilarious!! I want to hug the fries I had last night YUM. I may not love “red sauce,” but nothing beats a good Italian sausage… In the most innocent way. 😉

    • Erica April 10, 2013 at 5:42 pm #

      There is nothing like french fries. I had some with a habanero sauce the other night and it was HEAVEN.

      …and good lord you’re killing me with your comment.

  12. Emily in Chile April 6, 2013 at 8:45 pm #

    Haha, what a random museum! Although that sausage couch actually manages to look somewhat 60s mod.

    • Erica April 10, 2013 at 5:44 pm #

      Yup. I totally get it. Would be different if it wasn’t sausage colored though.
