One of the most frequent questions in our office is: where to eat traditional German food?

First of all, we point that there are different kinds of German food depending on the region. The most popular is the Bavarian one, probably thanks to the famous Oktoberfest, but in Berlin the traditional food is a different, using a lot of potato, asparagus, cucumber, pork, goose and whitefish.

In any case, there are many good Bavarian and Brandenburg restaurants where you can enjoy different specialties.

Here there is a list of some recommended places:

Near Miniloft:

Schwarzwaldstuben: Delicious Southern German food in a nice atmosphere. It is only 10 minutes walking from Miniloft.

Tucholskystrasse 48, Mitte

Clärchens Ballhaus: German food and dance. Every night there is a different dance: salsa, tango, swing... The food is really good but the place is also very interesting. It is one of the few buildings in central Berlin that survived the two wars.
