Perfect location - on the roof of Reichstag, right near the reichstag see-through cupola with perfect view on the city. And not only- beeing mostly view oriented the restaurant proposes great food at a good serving dishes and very nice vine choice.

The restaurant is very popular given its location. You will need to book well in advance, I did no so got a breakfast reservation. This is a very good way to visit the Bundestag.

You need to book this restaurant as there is a security check to get into the Reichstag. It takes about 20 minutes to get through security and up to the restaurant - don't forget your passport for the security check! It is worth the hassle as it is a really attractive restaurant in a great place with fabulous views. We... More

As part of our German experience our guide took us to the Reichstag followed by lunch at Dachgarten restaurant. The restaurant was fairly crowded but service was efficient if not friendly. Since the menu is fairly limited we opted for the Veal meatballs which was a rather filling choice. A better suggestion might've been to share the meatballs and a... More

Our concierge managed to secure a reservation for 4 people at 6:30 on a Thursday evening. Reservations provided access to the glass dome of the Reichstag that we greatly enjoyed visiting after dinner. Because of security to the Reichstag a reservation is necessary. Passports are checked at the security screening before being ushered upstairs. The hostess was very pleasant and... More

We wanted to visit the Reichstag and visit the dome, but had heard all about the long queue times. Booking the Käfer restaurant for breakfast was a great way to do it. Having a restaurant booking meant you can skip the queues, and booking for breakfast (our booking was 9.30am) meant that we were up there before the crowds and... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
