It’s All Wurst! German Sausages Types-Where to Buy German Sausage
In Germany, there are approximately 1500 types of sausages. And it can be rather overwhelming. A good number of them are sliced thin and laid on bread as Aufschnitt (Cold Cuts), and other soft sausages are spread on bread. Some of my FAVORITE German Sausages are the ones you get to eat whole. Where can you buy German Sausage online, and how do you know what to order? What are the different German Sausages types like? Whether it’s a grilled Bratwurst, a steamed Weisswurst or a snappy Knackwurst, there are many German sausages, and all are all delicious, and need little to top them, except a bit of mustard…or possibly some Curry Ketchup.

Different German Sausages Types to Try for Dinner
Confused about what to order? Take a look at this handy guide to German Wurst…
Wieners – This is most like an American version of a Hot Dog or Frankfurter. (Get it- Frankfurter/Frankfurt). This longer thin sausage is made from finely ground beef or pork, lots of seasonings, and is then smoked. You can serve them up off the grill, or boil them for a quick dinner. Sometimes you will see them sold in the US as Knockwurst… that’s just a mispronunciation. These sausages get their name from the “KNACK” or snap sound you get when you bite into it. Serve with Extra Hot German Mustard or Curry Ketchup.

Bratwurst– There are almost as many types of Bratwurst as there are cities in Germany. It seems like each region is famous for THEIR special Bratwurst. Generally these sausages are made from coarsely ground beef, veal or pork. Then seasoned and stuffed into casings. The most common shape it the fat bratwurst that are around 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Bratwurst are best off the grill, but you can also fry them. Serve with spicy mustard!

Curry Wurst- Curry wurst is not sausage made with curry… It’s a bratwurst that is cut into pieces, and then served with a curry/ketchup sauce. Learn all about it here–>Currywurst
Weisswurst- The most important division in Germany is not East West, it’s not the States….it’s the Weißwurst Equator. This all too important line of demarcation divides the preference of SAUSAGE! In the north, it’s brown… in the south, people prefer white. And Weißwurst is the king of those white sausages. This fine textured sausage is made from veal, pork, and spices, and served poached in broth, and the skin is peeled off by the diner before enjoying. Fresh Weißwurst should be eaten before noon… but you can get packaged Weißwurst that can wait for dinner.

Landjäger– For snacking, picnics and hiking… nothing beats Landjäger. Think of it as a jerky type of sausage, since it doesn’t need cooking. I put a stick or two in my bag when we head on a hike, and it’s super satisfying. It’s also delicious sliced up and served with some crackers or bread with a beer.
