The name derives from the Old High German word "brät", which means finely chopped meat, and "Wurst", which means sausage. 

Typically grilled and served with mustard and a side of sauerkraut or potato salad, Bratwurst is a must-try.  

Each region has its own version, with varying spices and preparation methods, making it a versatile and beloved dish across the country. 

Often hailed as one of Germany's national dishes, Sauerbraten is a pot roast, usually made from beef, though other meats like lamb, mutton, or pork can also be used.
