Café am Neuen See
With the beginning of the summer season after a way too long Berlin winter, we want to introduce you to one of our classic beergardens – the famous Café an Neuen See. Owned by Roland Mary, one of the most famous restaurateurs in Berlin, who also runs the Borchardts at Gendarmenmarkt and the Grosz at Ku'Damm, the place is beautifully located right next to an idyllic lake in Tiergarten. There is also a nice playground for kids and couples in love can take a romantic boat drive from here. The food is nice comfort food and the portions are generous – next to homemade Brezeln and Beer from the draft, you can have Italian specialities, pulled pork, grilled fish, nice salads – all good traditional food with a twist. Everything is a litte bit more expensive than in town beergardens, but really cheap compared to the Müncher Oktoberfest. The place was just renovated and has some kind of a modern chalet atmosphere with wooden walls and tables – with it's ambiance decoration and hidden lights everything is nicely balanced between hip, modern and traditional. Better miss it out on Friday nights and weekends, but during the week or on sunny afternoons it is one of the loveliest places to spend some time in the sun and have a cool beer or Radler along. We almost forgot, but when we first came here yesterday, the gentle murmur of international conversations around us whilst sitting next to the boating lake was close to perfection. Enjoy your summer in Berlin.
