Zum Löwen was featured in our Cee Cee Berlin Book No.2, which you can get your hands on here if you haven’t already.
Berlin can get busy, so sometimes Berliners need to escape. This was the motivation for ex-Berliners Lola Randl and Philipp Pfeiffer to open Cafe Zum Löwen in an old hotel opposite a large stone church in the center of the Gerswalde village. It’s a place where an eclectic mix of holidaymakers, Uckermark locals and former Berliners come to meet and travel on down to the beautiful Lake Sabinsee. All the work in Zum Löwen is done by Lola, Philipp and their friends: Ayumi Saito and Sayuri Sakairi have taken over the café, supplying Japanese home cooking along with local produce and homemade cakes for guests. News for summer: The café reopens for the season this Saturday (6.5.17), marking the occasion with Dóra Földes‘ exhibition “In This Land Leaves Sifted Sunlight on Their Cheeks“: a collection of paintings and drawings which turn a naturalistic lens on moments of stillness and serenity. Fresh country air, warm hospitality and expressive art: We know where we’ll be escaping the city to this weekend. (Text: Elisabeth Schotte / Photos: Hirofume Abe / Dóra Földes)
