Please note that we have marked all of these up on our Google Map.

If you need a tip for a late night snack, check the last entry in this list.

This small café offers a great variety of tea. However, of course, one can order coffee, milk shakes, beer, liquor, along with cake or even small plates of assorted ham and cheese.

Biertunnel (Beer tunnel)

This is a pub through and through. Hearty food, good atmosphere and a rich variety of beers and liquor.

Wenzel Prager Bierstuben (Prague Beer Tavern)

This restaurant is best described as a rustic Czech beer hall. It’s vaulted ceilings might surprise you at first, but it offers a lot of space even for larger groups of people.

Don’t Worry Be Curry

Currywurst is a thing in Germany. It is sausage grilled or fried topped with curry spice and ketchup. It’s a staple in German fast food culture.
