100 years Herta Heuwer

She is considered the inventor of the Currywurst and on June 30th she would have become 100 years old. The “Grande Dame” of the Currywurst, Herta Heuwer.

The legend says Herta Heuwer began to experiment on September 4th with various ingredients, especially with curry powder – and so a Berlin original was born. Her snack bar was situated on Kantstraße corner to Kaiser-Friedrichs-Straße in Berlin.

About 10 years after her first creation she had her invention – the “Chillup” sauce – patented.
Due to this jubilee the guests of the Currywurst Museum can expect a culinary offer: the first 100 visitors of the museum will get one Currywurst free.
