HEAD SOUTH FOR A NIGHT — GREAT EUROPEAN WINES FESTIVAL WITH VINHO VERDE AND FINGER FOOD AT THE ARMINIUSMARKTHALLE IN MOABIT
They’ve finally arrived. The balmy summer evenings, when there’s nothing to do but enjoy a refreshing drink in one of Berlin’s wonderful locales as you await your summer vacation. One such place is Moabit’s Arminiusmarkthalle. If this were a wine, it would probably be a Vinho Verde. This Portuguese tipple is made exclusively in the hilly hinterland of Porto between the Douro and Minho rivers. There, its flavors thrive with citrus, stone fruit and lush flowers. The Arminiusmarkthalle has been located in the hinterland of Moabit’s Turmstrasse for 132 years. It’s an architectural and culinary gem full of charm, warmth, authenticity and tradition. There are few other places in the city where you can stroll around, people-watch and try new things – like the regular foodie events. A special one takes place next Thursday (06.15.2023): Great European Wines Festival where you can taste, discover and enjoy diverse tipples. Winegrowers from Portugal and Italy will present their wines accompanied by Mediterranean finger food and music by Justin Leone, considered a rock star among sommeliers. What could be better on a wistful summer Thursday? Tickets for your mini-holiday in Moabit are available here.
