German Restaurants in Cumberland, Maryland

By Julia LeDoux

While in Cumberland visitors can hike or bike the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, enjoy a walk along the city's tree-lined streets or boat along the Potomac River. Or, you can opt to stroll along Cumberland Town Centre's tree-lined streets for a day of antique and craft shopping. No matter what you decide to do, Cumberland is within an easy drive of several German restaurants from its location in western Maryland.


With a history that stretches more than 100 years, Eichenkranz, located within an easy drive of Cumberland, offers diners a wide variety of German foods, served in a casual atmosphere. Among the offerings on the menu is sauerbraten, made from the restaurant's secret recipe of cubed beef, gingersnap gravy and potato dumplings. Also on the menu is schwinkoteletten mit apfeln: pork filets grilled and smothered in brown apple liqueur gravy with Granny Smith apples. A wide assortment of desserts, including sauteed rum bananas with ice cream and German Black Forest Cake, are also available. Meals are moderately priced, and lunch and dinner are served seven days a week.
