Berlin variety for coffee lovers

While Berlin may not be Vienna, the German capital’s residents also celebrate their coffee. And it would be atypical of the metropolis on the Spree if not everything were possible: classic, trendy or unusual, ethically produced or with lactose-free milk, etc. The location, however, is naturally just as important as the hot drink itself, because a beautiful view of historical sights, idyllic parks or a picturesque canal perfectly rounds off the pleasure.

Enjoy a cappuccino, espresso, etc. with an idyllic view

The historic Luisenstädtischer Kanal runs along the border between Mitte and Kreuzberg, where Café am Engelbecken is located. With a view of the water or St. Michael's Church, you are guaranteed to enjoy the ambience while drinking the coffee of your choice on the spacious terrace.

The Britzer Seeterrassen, in contrast, offer you a dreamy view of a lake while enjoying brunch or an afternoon coffee. Located in the middle of one of the most beautiful parks in Berlin, the Seeterrassen (lake terraces) themselves are also a highlight. The earthwork-style building appears to grow naturally out of the nature. The popular Mutter Lustig also offers you an idyllic garden and water view. This tourist restaurant in Köpenick will delight you with its hip vintage style, and if the magnificent view gives you wanderlust, then historical pedal boats are ready and waiting for you.

The Milchhäuschen at the Weißer See welcomes you with its 70s feeling and down-to-earthiness instead of fancy knick-knacks. In the midst of this green oasis, the coffee is actually almost incidental. Surrounded by nature and yet centrally located, Schönbrunn in the Friedrichshain public park is a good place to fortify yourself with a cappuccino for the subsequent sightseeing. Do you like to surround yourself with artists and love the classic-chic style? Then you’ll be happy at the Café im Literaturhaus. In the magnificent Wilhelminian-style villa, you can choose to have your drink served in the conservatory or outside in the lovingly landscaped garden.

Above the busy hustle and bustle of Berlin - pure metropolitan flair

You don't always have to be in the middle of the action. It’s just as nice to sit back and relax and watch the bustling life on the streets from afar. A good conversation and a hot coffee is also typical for Berlin. One insider tip, especially for the somewhat smaller travel budget, is the Technical University’s canteen, which is not called Skyline for nothing. From here you can look directly onto Ernst-Reuter-Platz.

If you decide to visit the Monkey Bar, which is located on the 10th floor of the 25hours Hotel, you will have a sweeping view of the zoo in the west of the city.

The Tiergarten, Zoo, Gedächtniskirche (Memorial Church) and Kurfürstendamm are just a few of the attractions you can discover while enjoying a cup of coffee on the 118-m-high roof terrace at the One Lounge in the Motel One Berlin-Upper West. Soak up the panorama of the big city amidst this aesthetic of Italian design and retro cinema. Needless to say, you can get all imaginable variations of coffee here. And lastly, the classic among the cafés with a view: in the revolving restaurant of the TV Tower at Alexanderplatz, you can even look beyond the borders of Berlin.
