Our Berlin bloggers are out and about constantly, discovering spots both old and new, delicious secrets, little highlights, and great treats for the gourmet in all of us. This time: Die Eins at German TV network ARD's studios on the Spree.

What's on offer?

Die Eins, lying directly on the banks of the Spree, takes an international approach to its dining offerings: salads, omelettes, pasta, schnitzel, and steak are on the menu. Classic regional dishes from around Germany are included: Berlin meatballs, Nuremberg sausages, and Swabian cheese noodles are all on the menu.

How does it taste?

I order the vegetarian spinach strudel served with tomato sauce and salad. And it’s a delight for the eyes from the moment it arrives: a colourful plate with a fresh, crisp salad paired with warm spinach strudel. And the taste lives up to what my eyes had promised: very delicious! The apple strudel with vanilla ice cream that I have for dessert is also well worth indulging.

What else?

The riverside terrace is a perfect spot for catching some rays or watching the sun set behind the Reichstag. At 2 o’clock on Wednesdays and Saturdays, you can also take a tour of the ARD TV studios before or after dining and learn more about TV and radio production.

Die Eins has a fabulous location between the government district and Friedrichstraße, but it’s not overcrowded. Just head on over and give it a try: maybe Die Eins will become your number 1! Die Eins, Wilhelmstraße 67a, Price class: moderate
