Is it a clever idea to put a charcoal-fired grill into the stairway of your home and to sell grilled sausages from there? Well, in 1920 someone in Göttingen thought so and the fire is still burning! The Bratwurst Glöckle is easy to overlook if you don’t know where you have to search for it. Keep your eyes wide open at the intersection of Kornmarkt and Groner Straße/Lange-Geismar-Straße, not far away from the Gänseliesel fountain.
It is just a small eatery with a very basic interior that hasn’t changed much over the years. That’s also because the customers love it and even the old-fashioned tiles have been preserved when the place was renovated. A renovation that was absolutely necessary as until the year 2013 all inhabitants of the house had to enter and leave through the diner. The owner was a friend of Göttingens best-known butcher Robert Sommer and therefore he always used the best sausages made in Göttingen. That hasn’t changed until today and you should drop in for a Bratwurst or a Currywurst; even Keanu Reeves did it! 😉
