This Michelin-starred restaurant is true to Berlin – unpretentious and contemporary in style. Located on the 12th floor of Vienna House Andel’s Berlin, the restaurant has seemingly endless views over the whole city. Furnished with unique flea market finds and shiny velvet benches on an unpolished concrete floor with high quality copper features, the venue feels exclusive in its design. The menu is described as “a crossover of fine dining and the typical Berlin flair”. Dishes are made with an exciting blend of ingredients such as Bavarian shrimp and Husum crab with miso and plum. While more conventional favourites include Swabian Hallish pork belly with white onion, flamed celery and Roscoff onion.
Landsberger Allee 106
German for “wattled crane”, the sprawling Klunkerkranich is loved by Berliners and tourists alike. The venue has been a Berlin institution since it was founded in 2013 and might be one of the most unusual rooftop locations in the world. Arriving is part of the fun with visitors taking the lift to the top floor of a shopping centre and walking through a multistory car park to find the entrance. The club, garden and beach bar features casual food and concerts plus a cocktail bar and DJ booth.Watch the sun setting over the rooftops as the city lights up beneath the terrace. There is also an extremely varied programme on offer at the astonishingly green roof, including poetry clams, cinema and markets in almost daily rotation.
