Berlin is well known for an abundance of cafes, brunch opportunities, food stalls, fancy restaurants and everything in between. However, while many enjoy life in Berlin by sampling the truly well represented international cuisine on offer, one should not forget to give German cuisine a try as well!

The Bergmannstraße is one of Berlin Kreuzberg’s most popular and beloved streets. Even though it is quite an attraction for tourists, it remains worth a stroll and a nibble. Especially on warm summer evenings, it is a delight to wander around the area (pop into the Viktoriapark for a stunning view of the city) and sit down on one of the many seating arrangements on and around the street.
Feliu is a cosy, authentic and Catalan-vibed restaurant in Berlin. Hidden away in one of Neukölln’s picturesque side streets and thereby safe from tourists or loud and annoying eaters. Feliu is one of those typical ‘Kiez’ gems, known mostly by locals and food-oriented inhabitants of the city.
Eating lunch or enjoying a late brunch is surely one of the finest things to be up to in Berlin. We inspire with our top list of restaurants for Berlin Prenzlauer Berg.
If you really want to enjoy a more holiday-specific dining experience, there’s nothing quite like getting out into the Berlin Christmas markets. However, if your’e more concerned with replicating a more traditional Christmas meal you will have plenty of options as well.
Being cold and freezing is horrible, but the one great thing about the winter season is spending it in Berlin. Berlin is a great city to enjoy the winter in, with its generally dry cold air, blue skies and snowy clouds. You may be cold, but at least not chilled to the bone. And luckily, there are many solutions in a place like Berlin that can help you warm up and get through the cold winter nights.
Every year since we have written specials and articles on the Berliner Weihnachtsmärkte, we have mentioned the Lucia Christmas Market, which is one of our favourite locations to enjoy a good glass of Glühwein and/ or Glögg. This year, Lucia is back once more and we will dedicate another article to this fabulously Scandinavian market.
We thought it time to approach this issue differently. Instead of telling you why you should definitely visit as many Christmas markets as possible, why not tell you what is horrible about them? Because there are ample reasons for actually not visiting the Christmas markets during your stay in Berlin. And we will tell you why.
Misirlou is a little gem, a Greek-style eatery and café. Perfect for a cup of hot chocolate (actually one of their specialities!) or an elaborate brunch/ lunch with friends. Also suitable for bringing along your work documents or laptop and spending hours sipping hot beverages.
One of my favourite dishes to prepare is also one of the simplest. I love vegetarian fresh food that invigorates instead of dumping big lumps of fatty food in my tummy. Whenever I feel like I need some food detox, I tend to stick to making simple salads with lots of vegetables and absolutely no meat.
