The 5 best restaurants with a view in Berlin

1) Neni

Excellent Jewish food and a breath-taking view over the Zoo and over Berlin. Neni is rather difficult to find, so if you make a reservation (you should, it’s popular!) ask for directions. You can have a drink first (or a coffee afterwards) in the beautiful Monkeybar on the same floor. Neni also serves a small but very affordable and delicious lunch.

2) Käfer

This is the restaurant on the top floor of the Bundestag. You need to make a reservation at least 24h beforehand and don’t forget to bring your passport or identity card when you go; they will be checked at the door. A fantastic location and good food at a price that’s not even that exaggerated.

3) Solar

A club-lounge and stylish restaurant on the 16th and 17th floor of a high building where once the CIA was stationed. Chef Jon Kremin creates classic Berlin dishes but always adds a twist. The setting is wonderful, and the view is absolutely stunning.

5) Hotel de Rome

It doesn’t get more classy and stylish than at the famous Hotel de Rome, with its amazing roof top terrace, which – few people know this – is also open to nonresidents. From there you have a view on the State Opera House, St. Hedwig’s Cathedral, the Berlin Cathedral and the Television Tower, just to name a few.
