Eating and Drinking
Tiergartenquelle is a fabulous German restaurant in Berlin with its old school looking bar and restaurant that sits underneath a S-Bahn train station. They serve huge portions of great German food and cold beer, what more could you want!?!
2. Curry 36
Rumored to be the best place to get a currywurst, Curry 36 is a pretty popular spot with queues starting every day from 9am when it opens, so there must be something behind the rumor. They sell the tasty currywurst, fries and other types of German sausages that are worth the wait.
Not far from Curry36 in the trendy Kreuzberg district is a small kebap stand selling the best kebap you’ll ever have in your life. This is also a very popular spot with queues starting before they even open at 10am, but again it is worth the wait.
4. Café Anna Blume
In Germany, it’s all about having brunch on Sunday (but you can have it any day of the week!) with family and friends. Café Anna Blume is a famous one in town for its very picturesque and tasty brunches. A must try!
5. Brauhaus Lemke
Brauhaus Lemke is situated conveniently in the Mitte district and is a great place to get some traditional German food in a nice atmosphere. They have all the classics such as pork knuckle, salads and spatzle.
1. Cassiopeia (RAW Temple)
Cassiopeia is a super trendy complex with a grungy vibe and awesome street art on all the walls in an abandoned train station area with loads of bars and clubs to choose from. During the day there are sometimes flea markets and food stalls (with something to suit everyone).
2. Kaffee Burger
Kaffee Burger is a small indie club in the Mitte district that has something going on just about every night of the week. Inside there is the original GDR 60’s wallpaper on the walls and an arty bar and club. Perfect for people who love to listen to indie, rock and punk music.
Watergate is a two level club located in the east side of Berlin right near the River Spree with the Oberbaumbrücke in the background. Inside you’ll hear mainly electro, drum & bass and hip-hop music in this cool building that has floor to ceiling windows that is perfect to watch the sunrise from the fantastic lounge area.
4. Stattbad Wedding
Ever wondered what it would be like to go dancing in an old swimming pool? Well you don’t need to wonder, as you can do it in the one-time swimming centre that has been converted into an art and culture space.
BeachMitte is the city’s coolest beach bar that sits along the former Berlin Wall. There’s are plenty of seats for you to sit and enjoy a drink or you can partake in a game of volleyball on one of their many courts, or do some climbing on the Mount Mitte installation, a quirky installation of some cars that are suspended in mid-air.
