Great beer, good food, fun place

This is a traditional German restaurant (been around for 180 years or so). It's got a traditional beer hall feel to it and a big beer garden outside (but it was cold when we visited so it's not in use). Food portions are big and hearty. I had the sausage and potato soup, followed by the beef... read more

Huge rectangular hall full of big wooden tables with a long bar and a stage at one end. The building is set in a Garden and we needed to go into the garden to make sure it was open as it was quite dark at the entrance to the garden and in the garden. The big hall is very nice... More

This beer garden has a great atmosphere. Although we visited in February and the place was quiet, you could feel a great potential of this place. The schnitzel was very good, and the beers are great. The price is fair.

I can imagine this Biergarten to be a bustling, happening spot in the warmer months. I went to Prater for dinner on a wintry cold night and even with most tables indoors filled, it was a rather subdued scene. The beers and the food were still good and the service staff were excellent.

Stopped in to the bar section of Prater on a night in November. Obviously it was a little cold to be outside so we didn't get the full biergarten experience but the atmosphere inside was very charming and the bartenders friendly and helpful. We drank beer and wine and had the pumpkin soup, which is highly recommended as a warm... More

Large beers, large food portions. Nice staff, nice place. Typical Biergarten. Would like to go again in the summer to enjoy the open-air garden.

It was a chilly night in late August and there weren't a lot of people but we sat outside anyway. Food was excellent and the beer was good. Nice atmosphere.

Unlike pubs or restaurants, which can be even better when not crowded, beer gardens are a lot more fun when there are more people. The people-watching, the laughter and mix of languages, and the ability to start a conversation easily at one of the many long tables are all more enjoyable when the place is more full. I stayed in... More

Me and a friend took U-bahn to this place, because it was high rated. The atmosphere was very quiet and we were sitting pretty much by ourselves. The food is nothing to be excited about and they only have 2 own beers

Neighborhood Profile
Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighborhood has undergone a greater change than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays, thousands turn the park next to remnants of the wall into a playground for street artists, musicians, and flea market shoppers. This attracts young urban families who enjoy the balance of big city life and small-town comfort. Meanwhile, trendy, young, upper-class visitors from all over the world are attracted to the local high-end shops, cafés, and sophisticated bars and restaurants. The merits of this transformation are a favorite topic of debate around the city, but it makes for some of the best people-watching Berlin has to offer.
