The beer gardens all over Berlin simply belong to a nice afternoon and a balmy evening. There are so many and so different beer gardens: in the middle of the city, in the greenery, cool craft beer, cult Berliner Weiße, traditional houses and hip new discoveries. We have selected our Top 11 from the many beer gardens in the city.
Tip 1: Café am Neuen See
The tables are located under large trees and directly on the lakeside - in the middle of the Tiergarten. There is a rustic mixture of Bavarian and Italian specialities, i.e. Leberkäse and pizzas and of course freshly tapped beer. Take a seat on the beautiful wooden terrace and enjoy yourselves.
Where: Lichtensteinallee 2, Tiergarten
Tip 2: Berlin Brewdog
The historic building from 1901 is a real gem. The beautiful beer garden and the spacious restaurant await you with the usual selection of pizza, burgers and wings and countless types of craft beer, some of which are produced in the brewery itself.
Tip 3: Fischerhütte am Schlachtensee
Here it is particularly idyllic. In the middle of greenery and the view can wander over the lake, where paddlers are already venturing into the cool water. Before you stop for a bite to eat, you might want to take a little hike around the lake, it's especially relaxing. Either way you will have a good time in the beer garden Fischerhütte at Schlachtensee.
Where: Fischerhüttenstraße 136, Zehlendorf
Tip 4: Golgatha Biergarten
Since 1977, the Kiez has been meeting Berliners from all over the city and visitors for breakfast in the morning, coffee in the afternoon and specialities from the charcoal grill in the evening. Take a look at the website to find out all about the weather-related opening hours.
Where: In the middle of Viktoriapark, Kreuzberg
Tip 5: Schleusenkrug
The Schleusenkrug is idyllically situated on the waterfront in the middle of the Tiergarten. You can either sit on the terrace and wave to the boats or refresh yourself in the garden under big trees. The Schleusenkrug is only a short walk away from Kurfürstendamm, so it's the perfect place to relax in the countryside, close to a shopping spree.
Where: Müller-Breslau-Straße, Tiergarten
Tip 6: Baergarten

Where: Schnellerstraße 137, Treptow
Tip 7: Birgit & Beer
The spacious beer garden directly on the Landwehrkanal is perfect for a start to Berlin's nightlife. You sit between old fairground figures in a relaxed atmosphere - and every now and then a DJ plays. Inside you can pinball, outside you can get fresh pizza from the wood-fired oven to go with your beer.
Where: Schleusenufer 3, Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg
