Berlin is incredibly vegan-friendly and usually ranks in the top vegan friendly cities worldwide, but sadly since Hotel Almodovar closed down, it no longer has any 100% veggie or vegan hotels. However, it does have some vegan friendly hotel options!

It has often been called the vegan capital of Europe or the world, although London now has more vegan restaurants so it’s getting a run for its money. It won’t surprise you, then, that Berlin is home to a few vegetarian and vegan friendly hotels and hostels.

If you’re looking for the best vegan hotels Berlin has, you’re in the right place! I’ve put together a list of the best vegan, vegetarian and vegan-friendly places to stay in Berlin.

Numa I Boxer Rooms andApartments

Located on the former site of Almodovar Hotel (which was the only all-vegetarian hotel in Berlin) is Numa I Boxer. Whilst it’s sadly not all veggie like Almodovar Hotel, they do have vegan options on the breakfast buffet.

If you’re looking for a comfortable stay in a hotel with well-equipped standard rooms, each guest room here has its own bathroom, air conditioning and fridge, while some also have balconies and dining areas.

As it’s located in Freidrichshein, this guest house is well-located for vegan amenities. Freidrichshein is a very vegan-friendly and trendy neighbourhood, and you’ll be within walking distance to lots of vegan eateries. It’s a perfect are to stay in when you visit Berlin.

Arcotel Berlin

Arcotel is a vegan-friendly small chain of hotels in Germany and Austria. Most of their branches serve vegan options at breakfast, including the Arcotel Berlin, which serves vegan breakfast options at the buffet every morning.

The Arcotel John F Berlin is really well-located four-star hotel, just a quick five minute walk from Museum Island in Mitte in the historic city center. It’s also a quick 5-minute walk from the nearest metro station. Public transportation in Berlin is easy to use and reliable, so this is a perfect place to use as your base to explore Berlin.

Each hotel room has free wifi and a flatscreen TV, and the hotel has a spa and gym overlooking the hotel courtyard.

Michelberger Hotel

Whilst not fully vegan, you’ll find vegan food on the menu at this Berlin hotel. Vegan guests will be pleased to see vegan options at breakfast, too.

The Michelberger Hotel is located in Freidrichshain, which is a great place to be as the surrounding area has lots of vegan restaurants. If you decide you don’t want to have breakfast in the hotel, you’re only a short walk from many a vegan cafe.

There are vegan options at breakfast and the hotel restaurant has vegan dishes on the menu.

Vegan hostel Berlin: A&O Hostel

A&O is a chain of hostels (with several locations in Berlin!) that are vegan-friendly.

A&O hostels always offer vegan alternatives to most menu options, and in addition to breakfast for 7 Euros (in all locations), they offer lunch and dinner and even packed lunches at some locations.

The Mitte location is centrally located, just a 10 minute walk from the East Side Gallery. Free wifi is available in all rooms and public areas. 

It also has foosball and a pool table.

Bikes can be rented from the hostel, and the Heinrich-Heine underground station is only a 5 minute walk away.

The breakfast buffet at this hotel features vegan options, and the in-hotel restaurant has vegan options on the menu.


Why stay in a vegan hotel?

Having vegan breakfast at your fingertips means not having to forage for a plant-based meal first thing every day. Plus, a restaurant on site means if you don’t feel like going out for dinner you don’t have to (though in Berlin, you’re probably going to want to go out!).

It also means (if the hotel is vegan, rather than vegan-friendly), having cruelty-free and vegan toiletries in the bathroom!

Vegan hotel or B&B owners also may be able to give you recommendations on the best vegan meals nearby, or even vegan supermarkets or shoe stores.

Vegan-friendly hotels vs. fully vegan hotels – it’s not just the food

What’s the difference between a vegan hotel and vegan-friendly hotel? Well, apart from the obvious (fully vegan food menu), there can be a number of differences, if the owner of a hotel follows a vegan lifestyle themselves and fully commits to making the entire place vegan.

These include:

    • Fully vegan breakfast/restaurant/room service
    • Vegan mini bar
    • No leather furniture
    • Feather-free bedding
    • Vegan cleaning products used to clean facilities

Many 100% vegan hotels (not these ones in Berlin unfortunately, as none are 100% vegan) are animal-friendly, meaning you can bring your dog along on your trip. Some also host their own companion animals on site or even rescue animals.

Sometimes (though not always), vegan hotel owners opt to be as eco-friendly as possible as well, limiting single-use plastics, constructing the buildings in an energy-efficient manner or using reclaimed materials and reducing waste and power usage.

In the case of vegan-friendly hotels, rather than fully vegan hotels (like all the ones in Berlin), this usually just means having vegan items at the breakfast buffet and on the food menu. This is great if you want more than just fresh fruit for breakfast!

Choosing the most vegan-friendly non-vegan hotel

If you want to stay in a vegan place, but can’t stay in a 100% vegan hotels, thenI always recommend booking near vegan restaurants, especially ones that serve breakfast if possible.

Breakfast is always the trickiest meal of the day to find vegan in my experience since many vegetarian and vegan restaurants don’t open until lunchtime, and most restaurants don’t seem to serve up many vegan breakfast options.

Berlin is the city of brunch (seriously, the city takes brunch seriously and is awash in spots serving up big brunch buffets every weekend), so take a look at a list of the best vegan breakfasts (like this one) and book nearby.

Or, you might want to get an apart-hotel with a kitchen so you can prepare breakfast, or at least get some muesli and a carton of oat milk to keep in the fridge.

If your hotel has a mini bar, you can also stash your non-dairy milk in the minibar fridge and have breakfast in your room in a pinch. Though as I mentioned, Berlin is the city of brunch, so better yet, find a vegan brunch spot near you!

Where else to stay in vegan hotels in Germany?

Planning a trip around Germany and wondering where to stay outside Berlin? Germany has a burgeoning vegan scene and a few vegan hotels! 

Hotel Nicolay, 100% vegan hotel, Zeltingen

The Hotel Nicolay 1881 is a family-run hotel that has been run in the same family for five generations, and is now fully vegan. Set on the picturesque Moselle River, it has vistas of the river and vineyards. 

As well as a complimentary vegan breakfast buffet, the hotel is home to not one but three vegan restaurants and even has a vegan wine cellar! They have a wellness centre, four saunas, a pool, gym and yoga studio. They’re also dog friendly.

Ahead Castle Hotel, 100% vegan, Lenzen

For a truly unique stay, why not a vegan castle hotel for a little sustainable luxury? That’s right, this vegan hotel is in a castle! This hotel is the largest vegan hotel in Germany.

It’s dog-friendly, and set on the UNESCO Elbe River reserve, a beautiful place. If the weather is good, you can canoe, stand up paddleboard, bike and explore.

Rooms are decorated with eco friendly furniture and each room has a yoga mat. (There’s also a underfloor heated tea house in the middle of the castle garden in which you can meditate and practice yoga.) They also use 100% renewable energy sources.

There’s a complimentary vegan breakfast buffet every day which includes mueslis, salads, pastries, pancakes and more, and the on-site vegan restaurant, Place to V, is open for lunch and dinner.

Vegan mountain pension, Schulenberg

For another unique stay, check out this family-run mountain pension that’s 100% vegan. All rooms (doubles and singles) have a private bathroom with toilet and shower and a balcony or terrace. 

There’s also a family-friendly holiday apartment with 5 beds (though the bathroom can only be reached via a bedroom) and rudimentary cooking facilities.

In the winter, there’s skiing nearby, and in summer, natural bathing ponds, climbing and more. There’s plenty to explore nearby as well, such as stalactite caves, castles and medieval towns.

Vegan breakfast is available, as is dinner, which you can take in the winter garden with a drink with the family. 

They’ve got board games available and a sauna.

Steinhaus 1718, Büdingen

This picture-perfect 18th century hotel looks like something out of a postcard and I think it would be a charming place to stay.

Located in the medieval town of Büdingen (just 50 minutes drive from Frankfurt), it was, as the name suggests, built in 1718. The name means “Stone House.” 

The on-site restaurant is fully vegan and reinterprets the cuisine of the Hesse region in plant-based form, using seasonal and local ingredients.

The hotel is also home to a beer garden.

They have single or double rooms. Each room has a desk, flat-screen TV and wifi. The junior suite also has a whirlpool bath.

With an average review score of 8.8/10, guests are mostly very happy with their stay and the most frequent comments are that the rooms are comfortable and the breakfast is great.
