Berlin Ice Cream Week 2020

The tastiness of the artisanal gelato is coming to Berlin with a new event: the Berlin Ice Cream Week.

Yoghurt with caramelized banana and homemade cocoa bean brittle, honey & lavender, fresh creamy avocado sorbet, peanut & curry, Talisker whisky with fermented Kampot pepper and a pinch of Himalayan salt, dark chocolate with beetroot… If you have never tasted an ice-cream that sound so strange but at the same time so delicious, the first edition of the Berlin Ice Cream Week is the right time! It will include 22 of the best homemade ice-cream shops in Berlin, in the week 20-27 August. Spring is not too far: it’s always ice-cream time. Especially if it’s tasty and handmade with high-quality ingredients. The event is not just about sweetness and tastiness though: thanks to a photographic contest, you can win a stay for two people plus an Italian language course in the beautiful city of Cefalù in Sicily. And thanks to an offline contest, you can try to win a 50€ ice cream voucher!

Berlin Ice Cream Week: how does it work

We have asked 22 ice-cream makers to think of a special and imaginative flavour just for the event and to create it with only their high-quality ingredients. And there’s even more! The special flavor will cost just 1€ per scoop for the whole event week. Taking part at the event will be as easy as eating an ice-cream cone: you just have to go to the ice-cream shops (scroll down for the full list) and ask for the the Berlin Ice-Cream Week special flavor. Do you wanna try to win the stay in Cefalù? Take a picture with your ice-cream and post it on your Instagram feed (find here all the details about the contest).

Berlin Ice Cream Week: the map of the participating ice-cream shops

How to discover where the participating ice-cream shops are located? As usual, there is map that shows the closest metro stations to the ice-cream shops. The map is now available in paper format in the ice-cream shops and in the Berlino Magazine office in Gryphiusstraße 23, Friedrichshain. The online version is available at this link and of course there is also a Google Maps for the ones who prefer the digital version. But this time is pretty important to get the paper one: during the event ask for the sticker every time you visit a different ice cream place and stick it next to the ice cream shop name on the flyer. If you collect at least 5 stickers send us a picture of your map at our e-mail You can win a 50€ voucher in an ice cream shop of your choice among the event participants!

Why prefer the artisan ice-cream instead of the industrial one?

When we enter in a bar or into an ice-cream shop, our eye falls on the appearance and on the presentation of the ice-cream boxes in the freezer. Usually, it’s not so difficult to distinguish the ice-cream that comes from the industrial production- characterized by ‘fake’ colors- from the artisanal one, that has a more natural and simple appearance. Handmade ice-cream is characterized by small-scale production, is usually prepared with fresh milk and cream, without any additives or treatments, and it is sold directly to the customer. That’s why the artisanal ice-cream is a synonym to a handmade, fresh and genuine taste.

Ital Eis Da Dalt Friedrichshagen’s special flavor: Matcha Green Tea Latte

How much ice-cream are we eating in Italy and Germany?

In 2017, an adult in Italy had eaten on average between 6,5 and 7 kilograms of ice-cream. German ice-cream consume is not so different from the Italian one. According to statistical data of 2017, 515 million ice-cream litres were produced in Germany, against the 595 million in Italy. However, German exports more ice-cream than Italy: this shows that in Italy prevails the artisan ice-cream. Italian ice-cream is also one of the main attractions for the thousands of tourists that every year are coming to visit the ‘bel Paese’.
