I was in Stuttgart, Germany in starting September for two nights, about 2,5 hour ride via ICE train from München. I find the city a bit different than the German cities (Berlin, München, Hamburg, etc): it was actually a calming city for me to see despite being the sixth largest city in Germany.
Sadly Stuttgart, Germany does not have a lot of vegan restaurants in the centre (one of them was a bit faraway which require a 30-minute train to get on), but surprisingly their groceries are packed with vegan products.
You can get these below products at the specific groceries, but hey it’s worth a long walk, great for your legs and saves you shitload taxi fares:
For snack or midnight snack, I get addicted to these Wheaty sausages. It was a German brand and I like the fact that these don’t have soy in it. The flavour was amazing, and I wish I can bring them back to the U.S. or anywhere I am. They have different kinds: Kür-Biss, Chorizo, Pyrossi, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Hanf (with hemp). My favourite ones are Hanf and Chorizo. All of them bombed with yummy flavours. I would get hundreds of them if possible. I think each Wheaty costs about €1,19, except for the fat one (70g / Red Chili Hot Peppers) about €1,89. I’m not sure, but I’m sure small ones are below €1,50 for sure at the German organic/bio stores.
For guilty snack or junk food , I really love REWE potato chips from Switzerland. There’s something about these potatoes: fresh and unique. REWE is one of the most common groceries that you can find in Stuttgart, perhaps other German cities, too. They even make their own store brands and I really like their logo concept. It does stand out and all of their products are white. Click here to look for nearby REWE grocery locations in Stuttgart. Also at REWE, they have a small bread section for fresh pretzels (with ingredients in German), some of them can be vegan. Just watch out for dairy, butter or lard in German.
Some vegan products I’ve found at REWE:
For dessert , I know it is difficult without a main course in Stuttgart. But I had plenty of snacking from the groceries, which filled me up. I found an Italian vegan brand, “Valsoia” which I remembered having it in Roma, Italy. You cannot find that in Austria at all, which disappoints me because that was one good frozen ice cream cone ever.
1. Where I found it? At “Edeka.” Address: Gaisburgstraße 2-4a, Stuttgart. I don’t think you can find these products at REWE or the organic groceries in Stuttgart, only at Edeka unfortunately.
