Avoid bratwursts in Berlin, Germany:

The sheer number of veg-friendly places in Berlin means that you’re almost never far from amazing food. Your starting point is Culinary Misfits, a restaurant that specialises in serving ‘ugly’ vegetables. Don’t worry though, you’ll still be able to gorge on pizza, burgers and vegan ice cream too.

Dodge meat stew and dumplings in Prague, Czech Republic

Prague is a hidden gem in Czech cuisine, proving that traditional food can be veggie-friendly. For veg takes on authentic Czech food try Maitrea or get a massive plate of Indian fare at Balarama. Generally speaking, Prague is such great value for money that you could literally eat yourself to breaking point, without also breaking your wallet in the process.

Say no to Kroket in Amsterdam, Netherlands

There are a lot of reasons you might chose to visit Amsterdam, and luckily the vegan fare is now one of them. Vegabond is a beautiful little spot to grab a wrap full of locally sourced veg and a bottle of wine to takeaway, but for a full dining experience try De Culinaire Werkplaats, where they treat their plant-based dinners like works of art and let you decide how much the meal was worth once it’s over.

More than meatballs in Stockholm, Sweden

Stockholm is the home of Hermans, a vegetarian restaurant many consider to be one of the best in Europe. Here you can enjoy a delicious lunch or dinner buffet and finish your meal off with a slice of vegan cake – if you’ve got room.

Pass on the Paella in Barcelona, Spain

Spain is currently having a vegan revolution, proving you don’t have to choose chorizo to enjoy tasty Spanish food. Barcelona is so keen to be welcoming it declared itself ‘veg-friendly, friend of vegan and vegetarian culture’ in March 2017. Like most cities, you’ll find a mix of simple veg-friendly places and purely vegan restaurants like BioBento and the appropriately-named Veggie Garden.

Shun the schnitzel in Vienna, Austria

If you’re going to be vegan in Austria do it in Vienna. You can get an easy fix of animal activism by eating at I love Veggie Burger, where 5% of your bill goes to the Austrian animal protection society. Not only does it serve up sensational burgers, but tasty vegan wraps too – try the Chili sin Carne wrap with jalapeños and vegan cheese.

Escape the escargot in Paris, France

Try and go hungry as a vegan in Paris and you’ll fail. Not only will you not be full, but you’ll probably eat some of the best food of your life. Gentle Gourmet started its life as a vegan bed and breakfast and has since morphed into a world-class eatery over the years.

Bypass bigos in Warsaw, Poland

Luckily for travellers, Warsaw’s vegan eateries are all located in the heart of the city. That means you’ll only ever be a 10-minute walk away from a full stomach. Try the “tuna” nigiri at Youmiko Vegan Sushi, the baked tofu burgers at Krowarzywa Vegan Burger and the Moroccan stew at Tel Aviv Food & Wine.

If you’re after a foodie city break to introduce you to the world of vegan cuisine, pop in-store and let Flight Centre’s friendly Travel Experts tailor-make the ultimate gourmet getaway.
