Wintertime may be cold and grey in Germany, but the it's the perfect season to enjoy some of the country's notoriously hearty food. The Local has compiled a list of some our favourite German culinary delights.

Whether vegetarian or a dedicated meat-eater, there's something to suit all tastes on a German menu. Carnivores can tuck into a huge schnitzel, topped with anything from fried eggs to creamy mushroom sauce. Alternatively, if you find yourself in the north, tuck into a plate of Labskaus, corned beef mixed with beetroot and potato.

Non-meat lovers shouldn't feel disheartened though, as regional specialities such as Handkäs mit Musik, which is cheese marinated and served with onions and caraway, also have the stamp of German authenticity.

So if you're feeling peckish, click on the link above to check out The Local's list of quintessentially German foods and see what takes your fancy.
