Cafe am Neuen See is a picture-perfect beer garden overlooking an idyllic lake. A popular spot in the summer, visitors can also take cover under rugs to enjoy this tranquil beer garden in the winter. They’re famed for their Leberkäse – a meatloaf-style dish popular in Germany and Austria – as well as pretzels, and of course their plentiful beers to wash it all down. Guests can also rent a boat and take it out into the water to enjoy a relaxing afternoon in this central Berlin oasis.
