The History of Currywurst

Currywurst

Currywurst is a fast food dish of German origin consisting of steamed, then fried pork sausage. Typically it is cut into slices and seasoned with curry ketchup, a sauce based on spiced ketchup or tomato paste and topped with curry powder. Very often it is served with french fries.

History

In Germany we have a passionate discussion about the origin of Currywurst. Berlin and Hamburg, …both claim the invention of Currywurst for themselves.


People in Berlin don’t have any doubts: The Currywurst was invented in Berlin! In 1949, Herta Heuwer sold a steamed and fried sausage, topped with her own sauce cration for the very first time. After she obtained ketchup, Worcestershire sauce and curry powder from British soldiers in Germany, she mixed these ingredients with other spices and poured it over grilled pork sausage. Heuwer started selling the cheap but filling snack at a street stand in the Charlottenburg district of Berlin, where it became popular with construction workers, rebuilding the devastated city. She patented her sauce under the name "Chillup" in 1959. At its height the stand was selling 10,000 servings per week. She later opened a small restaurant which operated until 1974.

In 2003 a plaque was installed in Charlottenburg, (Kantstasse 101) Berlin, where Herta Heuwer is said to have invented the currywurst.


The citizens of Hamburg still reject Berlin as the origin of currywurst. They refer to literature: In his novel, “Die Entdeckung der Currywurst” (“The Invention of Curried Sausage”), the author “Uwe Timm”, deals with the invention of the Currywurst. His fictional protagonist, Lena Brückner, creates and sells Currywurst in 1947, in Hamburg, at Großneumarkt, for the very first time. “The plot, based on Timm’s” childhood memories, presents an alternative but unproven theory that currywurst was invented in Hamburg. The city of Hamburg, even installed a plaque at Großneumarkt, Hamburg, for Timm’s protoganist, Lena Brückner.


The “Deutsches Currywurst Museum” estimates that 800 million currywursts are eaten every year in Germany, with 70 million in Berlin alone.


The currywurst is an icon of German popular culture. Former Chancellor Gerhard Schröder is a noted fan of currywurst. By tradition, every candidate for the mayor of Berlin is photographed at a currywurst stand.


The song "Currywurst" on Herbert Grönemeyer's 1982 album “Total Egal” is a tribute to the snack.


The 1993 novel, “Die Entdeckung der Currywurst”, by “Uwe Timm” was made into a 1998 play and a 2008 film both of the same name. The plot is based on an alternative but unproven theory that currywurst was invented in Hamburg.


The Deutsches Currywurst Museum opened in Berlin on August 15, 2009, commemorating the 60th anniversary of its creation. Curator Martin Loewer said "No other national German dish inspires so much history and has so many well-known fans". The museum receives approximately 350,000 visitors annually.
