Discover the hotspots of Berlin Mitte on a stroll of our neighbourhood

The ewerk is located on the grounds of the former Buchhändlerhof in Berlin Mitte, between Potsdamer Platz and Friedrichstrasse. The Berlin Central Station is only 2km away, and Tegel Airport only 10km away. The central location of the ewerk and easy access from various transport hubs has made it one of the most popular event locations in the capital.

Culture & Sightseeing

And that’s why in 1989 it was clear: the Wall had to go. The ewerk is located directly on the former border strip between East and West, the extent of which can easily be traced from our roof terrace. Look for the stones embedded in the street along Zimmerstrasse that mark the course of the Wall, and head to Checkpoint Charlie to learn more about the history of Berlin as a divided city from 1961 to 1989.

An absolute must on a visit to Berlin is a stop at the Brandenburg Gate. The classical sandstone structure is the most significant symbol of German reunification and one of the most important landmarks of the city.

The Brandenburg Gate is also the perfect starting point for a tour of the area, such as the Government Quarter, the Victory Column, and the Tiergarten.

After a stroll along the Unter den Linden boulevard, past the Staatsoper, the Berlin Cathedral Church and Museum Island, you’ll reach Alexanderplatz with its famous TV Tower. If you’re keen to get a view of the city from its 368 m height, be sure to buy tickets in advance in order to avoid the long queues at the entrance.

Restaurants & Bars

The nights in Berlin have a rhythm all their own – and they never follow a set pattern. The best nights out begin spontaneously and without a set plan. That’s why Berliners like to start their evenings in a cool restaurant or bar and then see where the night takes them. You’ll find some of the latest hotspots along Torstrasse. From high-class to super hip, there’s something here for everyone.

Cookies turned into Crackers. The former club has had an elegant makeover and now features a bar-in-restaurant concept with premium drinks and meals along with a changing DJ line-up on the weekends.

Seeing and being seen is the motto at Grill Royal on Friedrichstrasse. With a little luck, you might catch George Clooney’s eye for a toast while slurping oysters. One thing is certain: this is where you’ll find one of the best steaks in town.

Tres delicieuse – Bandol sur Mer is known for serving up French cuisine par excellence. That hasn’t gone unnoticed by the Guide Michelin, which once again awarded the restaurant on the Torstrasse a star in 2018. Here you can enjoy a multicourse menu with fine wine pairings, served in a relaxed French bistro atmosphere.

It’s a speakeasy that manages to be both hip and high-end, and that’s why competition is fierce every evening for the 20 spots at Buck and Brecks. Stop by during the week rather than on the weekend for a better chance at claiming one of the coveted seats!

In Fragrances, the bar at the Ritz Carlton at Potsdamer Platz, guests are invited to rely entirely on their olfactory sense when selecting their drinks.

Beneath the S-bahn station at Schiffbauerdamm is where you’ll find BarTausend, a stylish and tastefully decorated bar featuring a cantina and a small dancefloor. This is where middle management meets Mitte hipsters – and it’s ideal for celeb spotting!
