HappyCow has named Berlin the number one city for vegans, and it’s pretty clear why: From vegan grocery store chain Veganz to an entire “vegan street” lined with yummy plant-based restaurants and vegan clothing shops, Berlin is brimming with compassion.
We have to give some credit to PETA Germany for making compassion so cool. With offices in Berlin and Stuttgart, the group has made tireless efforts to help spread a cruelty-free message far and wide across the country.
In this two-part video (in Spanish with English subtitles), an intern for PETA Germany explains why Berlin is becoming an epicenter for cruelty-free living:
Let’s take a tour, shall we?

This entirely vegan pizza place serves up Neapolitan pizza made in a wood-fired oven, pasta, and salads.
Leykestraße 18, 12053 Berlin
Finally made it over to the new vegan pizza place in Berlin, La Stella Nera! It's run by a collective, and the workers there were so nice! Their pizza crust is on point, right out of their wood-fired oven. They also have pasta, and yummy desserts like tiramisu (pictured), panna cotta and affogato. Yummy craft beer too! You can choose from pizzas with or without cheese and white or red pizza, pastas and salads. Highly recommended! #veganberlin #berlinvegan #veganinberlin #vegansofberlin #vegansofberlin #vegantravel #vegantravelers #neukölln #berlinfood #whatveganseat #vegandeutschland #veganfoodshare #veganfoodporn #vegansofig #lastellaneraberlin

Gestern Abend gemütlich essen gewesen… Ich hatte die am besten belegte vegane Pizza (mit Dinkelteig), die ich bisher auswärts gegessen habe und die zum Glück nicht diesen miefigen Analogkäse drauf hatte. Im Restaurant fanden das Mäuschen wieder alle ganz niedlich und herzallerliebst… "So ein braves und ruhiges Baby" – naja wenn wir sie die ganze Zeit umhertragen, dann ist sie auch recht friedlich. #dinner #pizza #veganpizza #organic #healthy #vegan #veganfood #vegansofig #whatveganseat #whatvegansmake #veganisation #ichbinpeta2 #instafood #instagood #fitfood #fitdurch2016 #govegan #veganfoodporn #veganism #veganfoodshare #bestofvegan #plantbased #nursing #breastfeeding

Veganz Grocery Store
What could be more awesome than an entirely vegan grocery store? We can’t think of much. The Veganz chain has locations across Europe, including two in Berlin. (The Schivelbeiner Straße store is smack in the middle of Berlin’s “vegan district,” Prenzlauer Berg.)
For any Americans reading this, Veganz has reported that its products will be available in select U.S. grocery stores by late 2016, and it’s even promising to open stateside stores soon.
