After looking around the humboldt we went to the rooftop cafe mum had a nice apfelstrudel. Had a nice glass of rhabarbersaft (rhubarb juice) I,ve only drank this in Germany as I,ve never found it anywhere else. Fantastic view from the rooftop excellent service.

The Humboldt-Terrassen Restaurant/ bar is right at the top of the strange looking Humboldt Box, in east Berlin. We found the view worth the 4 euro per person for the lift.

It is quite difficult to first realise that in the Humboldt Box is not only an exhibition but also a cafe/restaurant on the top. Not much of signs in the bottom floor at all, and no arrow and few signs that help you to find the right way either by stairs or elevator. When found the place it is nice... More
