I'm cruising (literally) through Germany in a few weeks and would like to see what German bento chefs are using as bento boxes. I've got Japanese bento boxes, and Lock and Locks, and Wonder Bread sandwich boxes, but I am curious if German enthusiasts use something every day like Tupperware that I could pick up for my collection. I won't be in any major cities long enough to go shopping, but I will have free time in some smaller towns along the Rhine River.

Re: Lunch boxes in Germany

As a German bento maker, I think it's common for other German bento makers to use boxes from Japan, or those in Japanese style.
They buy them at stores like Dae-yang, Takagi (where I got mine) or OCS Japan Store in Düsseldorf. I'm sure there are more stores all over Germany that have bento boxes.
They also order bento boxes online in places like:

Some bento fans in Germany have a blog, like -

As you can see, we're not much different from bento fans in other countries ;)
