Berlin, Germany (Weltexpress). Berlin has 273 German restaurants in the capital and one stands out in a grand way. The Thüringer Stuben in Prenzlauer Berg has become a neighborhood institution.
With over 17 years of serving traditional German dishes, co-owners / chefs Mikro Hemme and Christian Fischer created a wonderful niche in one of Berlin’s popular spots.
The original interior design and recipes are what make the Gaststätte a big hit with guests.
All furniture and fixtures were brought to Berlin from the green gardens of Thüringen.
A rustic feel-good effect features antlers, paintings, knick-knacks and a stuffed elk with full antlers – hang creatively throughout the restaurant.
Many of the German guests in describing the food and full-menu, indicated it reminds them of the wonderful meals grandmother use to make.
