Germany is considered one of the most dog-friendly countries in Europe. Dogs are allowed almost everywhere (except in supermarkets and grocery stores), and it’s rare to find a sign that says ‘No dogs allowed’. This pet friendliness is due to the fact that dogs are very well behaved in Germany, as they are properly trained early in life.

Spotted by our local spotters in Germany, here are some spots you can enjoy with your dog:

Amelie's Wohnzimmer Frankfurt

Amelie’s Wohnzimmer is a cozy and beautiful little restaurant in the heart of Sachsenhausen. The team serves coffee, fresh homemade cakes and even other small dishes, but breakfast is a popular meal here… and breakfast is served until 5:00 p.m.!

The service is friendly and attentive, taking care of you and coming back with little extras when needed. It’s a perfect place for a meal with your dog. The dogs immediately receive a bowl of water and a small slice of sausage as a special reward. This place always offers its visitors a pleasant atmosphere.

Grunewald is located west of Berlin and on the east bank of the Havel river. It is easily accessible via the Grunewald S-Bahn station. There are many hiking and biking trails where you can enjoy nature.

If you’re in the mood for adventure, the famous Teufelsberg (an unnatural hill of rubble covering an unfinished Nazi military and technical college) is minutes away, in addition to the Grunewald tower.

Grunewaldsee, a dog-only lake, is a real treat if you bring your dog. Yes, it’s one of those things. Worth a visit even if you don’t have a dog. However, it is surely guaranteed to come away with a few paw prints on your clothes.

The Wittelsbacher Bridge spans the Isar River, not far from the city center. It is a popular place in Munich. Sitting here in this little nook, watching the people down there, chatting with a friend, watching the surfers down there, watching the sun go down and up.

From here you can hear the revelers as the sun goes down and the music starts playing, you can smell the smoke from people barbecuing further down the river in the summer.

Everything and nothing can happen when you’re sitting here. It’s as if you were in the middle of the action but stopped. It’s a place where you can rest, let it all in and feel like you’re in Munich.

Gremberger Waldchen Cologne

The Gremberger Waeldchen, a piece of history, is one of Cologne’s oldest forests – one of the city’s oldest trees grows here, a crimson beech from the 18th century. In the summer, it’s quiet and peaceful here; a small café in the 1912 forest house entertains the walkers, runners and dog owners who come here every day.

But from 1942 to 1945 there was a Nazi forced labor camp for people from the Soviet Union, Ukraine, Poland and France. On 08.04.1945, men from the Volkssturm surrounded the camp and fired through the windows of the barracks. After that, they burned down the barracks to “eliminate the focus of an epidemic”, as the commander explained.

Today there is a small memorial in the woods with a statue on a memorial stone with an inscription referring to the 74 prisoners buried here – both victims of the destruction of the camps and prisoners who died before 1945. Behind the rock stand finds an open area of ​​flowerbeds, now all green and framed by a path of rough stone slabs.
