Eating on the fly is never easy, but a few practical staples at Berlin’s main international airport make it possible to grab a healthy bite on the run.
Travellers in Berlin may wish to refrain from bringing up the city’s airport—unless, that is, they’re willing to endure the inevitable ensuing tirade from locals. The capital’s long overdue, wildly over-budget, desperately needed new airport is still something of a sore spot for locals, who have long lamented the project’s many pitfalls. In the meantime, the city makes due with two international gateways, Schönefeld Airport, which houses primarily budget airlines, and the Tegel Airport, the main doorway to the city. Yet though many Berliners bemoan the situation, Tegel Airport does offer a few advantages. Its small size compared to, say, Heathrow Airport in London or Charles de Gaulle Airport means minimal waiting times and makes it easy to get from point A to point B. And while dining options are a far cry from the luxurious sit-down options at many airports, there are plenty of spots to snag an affordable, reasonably wholesome bite before your flight.
All breads and pastries here are made the old-fashioned way, with slow rises and no artificial preservatives or additives of any kind. A hearty selection of paninis and salads makes this a popular, practical option.
One of the more upscale offerings, this German eatery serves everything from salads and pasta dishes to classic Teutonic staples and freshly baked desserts.
When you’d prefer to grab a healthy snack rather than resort to drab airline food, this take-away spot in Terminal A has a reasonable selection of organic items to satisfy your cravings.
Germany takes its pretzels seriously and no airport terminal in the country would be complete without at least one stand hawking them. The pretzels here are freshly baked daily and made with a special sourdough starter that adds complexity to the dough.
Drawing culinary inspiration from Eastern hubs from Taipei to Tokyo, Hong Kong to Hanoi, this pan-Asian eatery serves fresh, contemporary cuisine free from artificial additives. From simple stir-fry to salads, this spot has all sorts to offer the globally-minded foodie on the go.
Fresh, seasonal produce is central to this casual sit-down spot on the second floor. Should you find yourself with a long layover or a bit of extra time before you take off, this is easily one of the best places to go.
