The contrast in view cannot be more blatant than here: the skyscrapers of Märkiches district to the right, the Lübarser Höhe meadows to the left, and the Alte Fasanerie, the old pheasant house also known as “the family farm Lübars”, sitting in the middle. Since the new management which began earlier this year, a lot has changed here. Why do I mention this? Because it’s not easy to find good restaurants in the north of Berlin. A bright dining room that serves tasty no-fuss food has emerged from a dark hole. Their best seller is the grilled half chicken with fries. The potatoes are harvested in the farm’s garden, as well as the herbs, greens and seasonal sides. You’ll smell and taste the freshness, which is crucial for simple dishes. Their outdoor beer garden during the summer is absolutely beautiful, overlooking the flower beds and the thriving wetland meadow: a great relaxation for the stressed city eyes. Kids will appreciate the sandbox, and visiting horses, rabbits or sheep. (Photos: Susanna Gotsch)
