Schwerin hocks Brotten were the best

Wonderful German restaurant in the old town right on the river's Paris which had excellent German food. We had the swine hocks broten which were excellent. The staff was very attentive and helped us understand the menu and what we were getting.

We were there only for beers. Funny staff, excellent atmosphere. The beer is very tasty, This place also appear in tripadvisor as Brauhaus Georgbraeu and Georg braeu brauhauss, so you can read the reviews there in order to complete full picture.

We found this place by accident during a hot afternoon sightseeing and in need of a drink and a sit down. This is what I’d imagined a real German pub to be like (never actually been in one before). Quite busy even at around 4:00 p.m. but found a table with menus and soon approached by friendly waiter. We just... More

What a place! Absolutely loved the beer (try the dunkel), the ambience and the traditional German food. Went back several times during our stay. Would be fantastic in the summer as they have a big beer garden area in the square out front. Brilliant bar.

I love this biergarten. It is tucked away off the beaten path along the Spree River and next to the statue of St. George slaying the Dragon. Although the service is a bit slow, they have excellent outdoor and indoor seating. The food is super and the beer is always flowing.

This brewery serves its own beer for very low prices. When sunny, the terrace is really terrific. It's situated near the centre (Mitte) but very quiet and peaceful. You can also sit next to the river Spree. The streets around this place are also very lovely, with small and local shops. Especially a great place when you've a bike or... More

This restaurant presents all the typical Berlin dishes with good price. Probably because of its big size, it's quite easy to find table at any hour, but the atmosphere looks more like a fast-food than a traditional German restaurant. Portions are big i.e., for the dessert of the day, almost for two persons. Location is pretty to have a walk... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
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.
