Berlin is a great city to visit for a short break, but beware, many people visit the city for a few nights and end up staying longer, even making Berlin their home

Here are 3 recommended restaurants that you can eat your way through if you just have time to visit Berlin for a long weekend

First off you have to taste some German food.  Head for Joe’s Wirtshaus which is one of the largest and most popular restaurants in Berlin.  Here you can choose Berlin specialities such as

Grilled pork sausages with sauerkraut and mashed potato or Pickled Pork knuckle with sauerkraut and parsley potatoes. Vegetarians are not forgotten and have a mouthwatering choice of items such as Noodles Rigatoni with mixed vegetables, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, rucola and balsamic sauce or Small flour dumplings with white wine sauce and 2 different cheese au gratin

The restaurant has their own website so you can check directions and their menu online

Weihenstephaner is the the oldest brewery in the world and have their own Bavarian restaurant complete with seating in the cellar and outside in the summer. The restaurant is located right by Hackescher Markt (Berlin-Mitte). The menu offers such Bavarian specialities as Pork Roast with crackling  in an Original Weihenstephaner dark beer sauce served with potato dumplings and coleslaw with bacon or how about the equally mouth watering Bavarian Style roast beef marinated in vinegar and herbs (Sauerbraten) with pretzel dumplings and red cabbage

Close to the  Brecht Theatre in the city centre in the government district and not far from Unter den Linden is the cosy Kartoffelkeller restautant.
