The Berlin location of the legendary Hofbraeuhaus offers the same fun-loving atmosphere, massive steins of delicious suds, and hearty biergarten fare as the original.
This Mitte Bavarian-style beer hall features plenty of outdoor seating where you can enjoy traditional Bavarian food such as sausages, schnitzel, and sauerkraut, as well as a wide variety of both light and dark, top-notch beer varietals.
This Neukölln brewery/resto/beer garden may be a bit off the beaten path, but it's totally worth visiting for their hearty German fare and variety of Rixdorfer light and dark brews.
Although the 2000s baby brewery Brauerei Eschenbräu is know for its seasonals that dominate the beer garden's menu, its still got a handful of mainstays to satisfy beer drinkers of all kinds: a malty pils, a chocolatey dark, a fruity wheat, and a citrusy wheat. They're all easy to drink, and they all pair well with the snacks and other fare that rotates frequently on the beergarden's menu. The cellar's got a traditional German style and plenty of tables, but an evening under the beer garden's winding tree branches and string lights is not to be missed out on.
A venue that once served as a political meeting space, performance venue, theater, and public house is now one of Berlin's oldest outdoor beer gardens. Ideal for big group outings, this chesnut-shaded yard sports yellow picnic-styles tables, doused in light from string bulbs above. The attached Prater restaurant serves as much more than an alcohol sponge, featuring a seasonal menu with classic German fare like schnitzel, meatballs, and an egg/mustard mash called Senfeier mit Quetschkartoffeln, all accompanied by fresh vegetables from nearby farms.
On a large pond in Tiergarten (Berlin’s largest park), Neuen See Café is as close as it gets to a countryside vacation without shelling out for a regional train ticket. You’ll find both tourists and local families here eating Bavarian specialties all season long (try the Flammkuchen, best described as a German pizza).
Located on the outskirts of Berlin, Loretta am Wannsee is a tradition beer garden that's famous for its lovely scenery and massive variety of beers. Come here to grab an authentic Bavarian brew and some peppers, pears, bacon, or dried tomatoes, BBQ knuckle, apricot dumplings, and other Bavarian specialties.
