After more than six months (!), the outdoor areas of bars, cafés and restaurants in Berlin can finally reopen. From May 21st, guests can enjoy a meal and/or a drink in their favorite terraces, following some rules: They must present: a negative corona test not older than 24 hours, a proof of complete COVID-19 vaccination or a positive PCR test that is at least 28 days and no more than six months old.
Also, most of the eateries require reservation. However, you can try your luck and make the registration on the spot. For this, having the Lucca app on your phone makes the process less stressful.
That said, we selected some of the coolest terraces and courtyards where you can enjoy a meal or a drink seated in a table. Check them out:
The eponymous restaurant of Michelberger Hotel is reopening its courtyard (one of most atmospheric in Friedrichshain, by the way) from May 21st. Breakfast and brunch will be served seven days a week and dinner from Tuesday to Saturday from 6pm.
In the picturesque Rosenhöfe, next to Hackescher Markt, you can enjoy drinks and Naples-style pizzas all day long – seated in a table!
