Berlin Ice Cream Week: 25 of the best artisanal ice-cream shops in Berlin are offering a special flavor just for 1€

The tastiness of the artisanal gelato is coming to Berlin with a new event: the Berlin Ice Cream Week.

Sicilian pistachio pesto granita and homemade cocoa bean brittle, honey & lavender, fresh creamy avocado sorbet, peanut & curry, Talisker whisky with fermented Kampot pepper and a pinch of Himalayan salt, dark chocolate with beetroot… If you have never tasted an ice cream that sounds so strange but at the same time so delicious, the first edition of the Berlin Ice Cream Week is the right time! It will include 25 of the best homemade ice cream shops in Berlin, in the week from July 23rd to 29th. It’s always ice cream time, especially if it’s tasty and handmade with high-quality ingredients. The event is not only about sweetness and tastiness though: thanks to a photographic contest, you can also win a stay for two people plus an Italian language course in the beautiful city of Cefalù in Sicily. And thanks to an offline contest, you can try to win a 50€ ice cream voucher!

Berlin Ice Cream Week: how does it work

We have asked 25 ice-cream makers to think of a special and imaginative flavour just for the event and to create it only with their high-quality ingredients. And there’s even more! The special flavour will cost just 1€ per scoop for the whole event week. Taking part to this event will be as easy as eating an ice-cream cone: you just have to go to the ice-cream shops (scroll down for the full list) and ask for the Berlin Ice-Cream Week special flavour. Do you want to try to win the stay in Cefalù? Take a picture with your ice-cream and post it on your Instagram feed (find here all the details about the contest).

Berlin Ice Cream Week: the map of the participating ice-cream shops

How to discover where the participating ice cream shops are located? As usual, there is a map showing the closest metro stations to the ice cream shops. The map is now available in paper format in the ice cream shops as well as in the Berlino Magazine office in Gryphiusstraße 23, Friedrichshain. The online version is available at this link and of course, there is also a Google Maps for the ones who prefer the digital version. But this time it is pretty important to get the paper one: during the event, every time you visit a different ice cream shop, ask for the sticker and stick it next to the ice cream shop name on the flyer. If you collect at least 5 stickers send us a picture of your map at our e-mail You can win a 50€ voucher in an ice cream shop of your choice among the event participants!

Why you should prefer an artisan ice-cream instead of the industrial one

When we walk into a bar or into an ice cream shop, our eye falls on the appearance and on the presentation of the ice cream boxes in the freezer. Usually, it’s not so difficult to distinguish between the ice cream that comes from the industrial production- characterised by ‘fake’ colours- from the artisanal one, that has a more natural and simple appearance. Handmade ice cream is characterised by small-scale production, it is usually prepared with fresh milk and cream, without any additives or treatments, and it is directly sold to the customer. That’s why the artisanal ice cream is a synonym for a handmade, fresh and genuine taste.

Both the Tanne B shops in Charlottenburg and Kreuzberg are taking part in the event, offering respectively “Grieß” and “Erdnuss-Curry” flavours.

How much ice cream do we eat in Italy and Germany?

In 2017, an adult in Italy ate on average between 6,5 and 7 kilograms of ice cream. German ice cream consumption is not so different from the Italian one. According to statistical data of 2017, 515 million ice cream litres were produced in Germany, against the 595 million in Italy. However, Germany exports more ice cream than Italy: this shows that the artisan ice cream culture prevails in Italy. Italian ice cream is also one of the main attractions for the thousands of tourists that every year are coming to visit the ‘Bel Paese’.
