The Carnival of Cultures has been a showcase for Berlin’s cultural diversity for more than 20 years. On Whitsun weekend the four-day festival takes place around Blücherplatz again this year. The highlight is the annual parade on Pentecost Sunday.

Vegan offer at the festival

The options for vegans are not huge, but there are some interesting offers. I have selected a few options for you. Otherwise, I can only recommend that you simply ask around or in case of uncertainty just ask the dealers for the ingredients.

Die Optionen für Veganer sind nicht riesig, aber es sind einige interessante Angebote dabei. Ich habe ein paar Möglichkeiten für dich herausgesucht. Ansonsten kann ich dir nur empfehlen, dich einfach durchzufragen bzw. bei Unsicherheit einfach die Händler nach den Zutaten zu fragen.
