The event entirely dedicated to the best artisanal ice cream in Berlin is coming back, the Berlin Ice Cream Week 2021.

Rustic yogurt with lime, mint and blackberry, buffalo ricotta with pear and spicy chocolate, asparagus ice cream, pistachio tiramisu in Sicilian cannoli, Piña Colada made with fresh fruits, orange and fennel, sorbet with primitive wine and mulberry, dark chocolate with spicy Habanero, Zabaione Marsala, babà and many more… If you have never tasted such creative ice cream flavours, the Berlin Ice Cream Week is the perfect occasion: it involves 31 of the best ice cream parlours of the city and will take place from May 6th to 12th 2021. It’s always the right time for a good, tasty and high quality ice cream, and the event is a great occasion not only for the most gluttonous: a photo contest on Instagram will give everyone the chance to win a 300 € worth ice cream machine to make their favourite flavours at home. Moreover, through an offline contest you can win a voucher for 50 € of ice cream.

Berlin Ice Cream Week, how does it work?

We selected 31 among the best artisanal ice cream parlours in Berlin and asked them to create a special flavour specifically for this event, giving vent to their creativity and using original ingredients. And there is more: during the whole week of the event the special flavour will cost only 1 € per scoop. Attending will be just as easy as eating an ice cream cone: you just need to go to one of the participating ice cream parlours (you will find the full list at the end of this article) and ask for the special flavour of the Berlin Ice Cream Week. In order to meet all the needs, a lot of the flavours are vegan. Match the flavour with one of the classics or continue your ice cream tour going to the next ice cream parlour. Obviously, all participating ice cream parlors pay the utmost attention to compliance with hygiene rules. According to the restrictions currently in force in Berlin, ice cream cannot be consumed inside the ice cream parlor but must be taken to take away. Thanks to the collaboration with SumUp, many of the ice cream parlors involved offer the possibility to pay by card to make the experience even safer.

Berlin Ice Cream Week, the map of the participating ice cream parlours

Do you want to find out where the participating ice cream parlours are? They are all represented in a map of Berlin together with the closest underground station, so you can find them at a first glance. You can find the paper map in any of the participating ice cream parlours or in the Berlino Magazine office in Gryphiusstraße 23, Friedrichshain. You can also download the online version as a PDF or as Google Maps.

Berlin Ice Cream Week, the stickers contest

The Berlin Ice Cream Week offers two different contests, one online and one offline. Let’s start with the offline one: in this case it is more important than ever grabbing the paper map, as every time you visit an ice cream parlour during the event you can ask for the corresponding small sticker and stick it next to the name of the ice cream parlour. If you collect at least 5 (from 5 different ice cream parlours) send a photo to the email address trueitaliancontest@gmail.com till May 13th at 11 PM and thus participate in the extraction for a 50 € worth ice cream voucher to be consumed in one of the ice cream parlours of the event of your choice. The extraction will be done online on the social media channels of True Italian on May 17th at 5 PM.

Berlin Ice Cream Week, the Instagram contest

On the other hand, the online contest is a photo contest on Instagram. When you visit one of the ice cream parlours, take a creative and original picture of the ice cream or of yourself while eating it. Post the picture on your Instagram account before May 12th at 11 PM. You could win a machine for making ice cream at home worth 300 € offered by our partner G3 Ferrari. More information here.

Why prefer artisanal ice cream to industrial one?

When we enter a bar or an ice cream parlour, our attention is immediately caught by the appearance and presentation of the ice cream tray in the freezer. Usually it is not so difficult to distinguish the industrial production, more showy and with more ‘fake’ colours, from the artisanal one with a much simpler and more natural appearance. Artisanal ice cream is produced in small quantities, is usually prepared with fresh milk and fresh cream without  additives and treatments, and is sold directly to the consumer. This is why artisanal ice cream is associated with a more domestic, fresh and genuine flavour.
