Very nice food in a very nice place. We tested the "pot au feu" of duck and this was perfect. The appetizers were also great: Carpaccio of tuna and soups. Great place and great read wines from Germany.

The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights

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

between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given
