Food in Berlin: Richard

Last week, I was invited for a dinner at Richard, a fairly new restaurant on Köpenicker Straße, just off Eisenbahnstraße. This area is certainly not known for upscale restaurants and thus the choice of location might be astonishing. But the space is actually one of the oldest restaurants of Berlin and has been remodeled for Richard. Of course they kept the carved wooden ceiling and the beautiful big windows facing the street adding some contemporary art and fancy bubble chandeliers.

Escape: Tegeler See

When living in the centre of this cosy little town, one sometimes tends to forget that Berlin actually lies in the middle of a beautiful holiday region with hundreds of lakes, forests and parks to discover.
