The magic of the Schãnke begins way before entering it. The fortress is astonishing, every corner screams of history. The restaurant/tavern is as good as the rest of the citadel! Fortunately the witch is still going to look upon you, happily smirking at the thought of your fattening !! Ask the waiter about the story behind the citadel, you'll get... More

This is really a place for a group event where the social part and laughter are more important than the quality of the food. Bare in mind that you will get very basic food as it is a reminder too the food of the less wealthy during the time of knights and kings. No forks, its time to use your... More

Found and booked this for a group on a company trip nervous about what it would be like because it was my idea and I would get the blame if it was bad but as soon as we walked through the gates of the castle I knew I had chosen well and that kept on being confirmed and surpassed throughout...

A great experience for visitors in Berlin. A little pricey for the full menu but the food is abundant and very good. The entertainment and atmosphere is great, and it is a nice evening out.

During our trip at the zitadelle we stayed in this restaurant just to have a coffe on the go. The location inside is amazing, fornitures make you live like in the old times and the service is very nice. Try this restaurant, even just for a coffee it deserves to be visited!

From Berlin central you can take a taxi to the restaurant and it costs €30.00 each way The restaurant is inside the castle; do not start to wonder around. The taxi will drop you off at the beginning of a road that looks like to go in a forest but it actually leads you to a bridge that leads you... More

My family and relatives had a very nice evening dinner in this beautiful restaurant. It's set in the Zitadelle with medieval decorations. Food is served in special utensils. You feel like you're Robinhood, or Harry potter or the like. It's a unique experience.

We stumbled in here on a visit to the citadel, not expecting to find great food. We were pleasantly surprised. High-quality German fare. We had a variety of sops, salads, sausages, all delicious. Even our picky 10-year-old found something to eat. We almost ate outside, but luckily took a peek inside first. The restaurant is under the walls and is... More
