Die Restaurants in Mitte

Gendarmenmarkt On the photo, you see Gendarmenmarkt, one of the most beautiful squares in Northern Europe and only one of the must-sees in Mitte, Berlin’s central district. On a night out, you won’t miss out on the trendy quarter called “Spandauer Vorstadt", famous for the Hackesche Höfe-courtyards and Oranienburger Straße, with the New Synagogue. There are loads of nice restaurants in the area, some of them hidden in little side streets. Instead of an old city centre, Berlin has Nikolaiviertel, a project from 1987 consisting of a few blocks of buildings in a mock-medieval style around St. Nicholas church. ‘Unter den Linden’ –the capital’s main avenue– is, of course, obligatory for tourists:Lined with splendid monuments it runs from the Brandenburg gate to the cathedral on the Museums Island.

The advantages of diversity in the Mitte :
• Museums • historic city centre • Grand Hotels • Architecture • Wall • From the Brandenburg Gate to Alexanderplatz • Gendarmenmarkt square

Restaurants around Hackeschen Markt

Hackesche Höfe He has many names: Barn quarter or Jewish quarter. In today's trendiest part of Berlin, poverty prevailed until 1900 in this former suburb of Berlin, in the twenties it was already Kutlurzentrum then followed the war and the years of neglect under the GDR. After the fall of communism, investors came and turned Scheunenviertel back into Berlin's cultural centre. Today a visit to these courses is indispensable if you want to discover the most unusual aspects of Berlin (e.g. with the Schwarzenberg Centre or Clärchen Ballhaus).

Let yourself be amazed by the cultural richness of the district, the centre of contemporary art in Europe. Jean-Pierre Andreae offers you guided tours dedicated to this district and/or to street art.

Restaurants around Potsdamer Platz

Potsdamer Platz Der Potsdamer Platz had three periods; until 1939 it was the heart of Berlin with its railway stations, its dense traffic and its economic life. Then it became a no-man's-land between the two walls (Main and Backland Wall) and finally Potsdamer Platz regained central importance in Berlin's economic life on the occasion of German reunification. The Berliners regret the old buildings from the time before the war and do not like this hyper-modern square so much. For tourists it is the opposite and many of them appreciate the architecture (Piano, Roger, Jahn & Co.), the gastronomic offers as well as the variety of cultural offers.

Restaurants at City West

Kudamm city West Restaurants Charlottenburg : When visiting Charlottenburg palace, the only grand residence of the Hohenzollern kings in former West Berlin, you should take your time, especially in summer as the beautiful gardens are inviting to stroll around a bit. Important venues as the fairground & congress centre and the Olympic Stadium are located nearby. Before plunging into the shopping area around Memorial Church (near zoo station), you could probably do with a nice meal. You should venture into the side streets to discover charming little restaurants as around Savignyplatz square (S-Bahn). Charlottenburg’s legendary Ku’damm – capitalist stronghold in the Cold War era – never really ceased to be the city’s most popular shopping boulevard.
Wilmersdorf : Wilmersdorf and Charlottenburg, which were merged in 2001. Just South of Ku’damm lie those residential areas, which sure are quieter than others, but nonetheless cosmopolitan, with some stylish shops around Pariser Straße. On the outskirts, there are increasing more trees between mansions of the rich, most of which were built around 1900, as Grunewald is near. This beautifully wooded landscape dotted with lakes was one of the few getaways for West Berliners in Wall times and is still highly popular, attracting bikers and walkers alike. Starting from Grunewald station (S- Bahn), in about 45 minutes you may reach the top of Teufelsberg, a hill that became Berlin’s highest elevation due to wartime rubble piled up on it. During the Cold War, the NATO spied on the Soviets from here. Although no longer of strategic interest, the view is impressive.
Schöneberg : Besides the famous departments stores of KaDeWe (photo on the left) on Wittenbergplatz, this borough is strongly associated with Berlin’s gay quarter around Motzstrasse. An aspect not to be overlooked in a traditionally tolerant and liberal city (whose mayor is openly gay). But Schöneberg has more to offer, such as fancy boutiques, antiques shops and restaurants galore, which reflect the ethnic diversity of its inhabitants. Have a look around Winterfeldtplatz, Goltzstrasse and Akazienstrasse, enjoying the relaxed casual atmosphere of this authentic Berlin neighbourhood where, by the way, unforgotten Marlene Dietrich was born.

Restaurants in Prenzlauerberg

Wasserturm Prenzlauer berg restaurants We absolutely recommend paying a visit to this quarter, which became a symbol of Berlin’s rebirth in the 90s when young people settled in the derelict tenements. A true cosmopolitan spirit reigns in the restaurants in front of the water tower and around Kollwitzplatz, a square that is crammed with young parents twice a week during the organic food market, since gentrification took hold of the neighbourhood. Hungry for culture and adventure, a mixed crowd sets out to discover the buzzing street life, strolling along Kastanienallee and Oderberger Straße, hanging around the funky shops and pavement cafés. There are quaint places to be discovered, like Kulturbrauerei that unites cinemas, bars, theatres and a concert hall in a splendidly restored nineteenth.
We also recommend the Mauerpark, on Sunday, with its famous and popular flea market, where you can enjoy lots of music, local artisans and culinary delights. The market is located next to a street, Oderbergerstraße, with many restaurants and terraces.

Restaurants in Kreuzberg & Friedrichshain

Restaurant Kreuzberg

Kreuzberg became a point of interest in Cold War times, due to allied confrontation at Checkpoint Charlie. But generally, it lay forgotten by most in the shade of the wall. Only the poor and unwanted were attracted by its cheap housing; so in moved hippies, artists, punks and immigrants, who mainly were from Turkey. Since 1989, when it became a central borough once again, much has changed. But a whiff of anarchic spirit still lingers in the streets of the legendary squatters’ quarter of “SO 36”, between Oranienplatz, Görlitzer Park and Oberbaumbrücke (river Spree bridge). Another hip “Kiez” ( Berlin neighbourhood) lies around Bergmannstrasse, near Vikoriapark (artificial cascade, monument designed by Schinkel). The best way to explore this colourful quarter in depth is by taking a walk along the canal in summer, passing by restaurant ships, crammed cafés and the Turkish market.

Friedrichshain lies just opposite Kreuzberg, across Oberbaumbrücke, on the North bank of river Spree. The borough can boast of protected heritage dating from socialist times, like Karl-Marx-Allee, a triumphant boulevard of impressive dimensions lined with workers’ “palaces” that runs over 2 km from Frankfurter Tor towards Alexanderplatz. Another attraction is the longest surviving portion of the Berlin wall, which was converted in an open- air gallery in the year after the Wall had come down. 118 artists from 21 countries contribute with mural paintings to the creation of the East Side Gallery. A park is being built between river and wall; in front, a huge housing project, including a concert hall, will be realized soon. For a night out, the quarter around Simon-Dach-Straße with its countless cafés is a must-go.
