If you’re the kind of person who wants to head out and grab a drink as soon as you’ve dropped your bags at the hostel (fun-loving troubadour? Craft beef connoisseur? Tragic alcoholic whose trip to Germany is a thinly veiled attempt at self-annihilation?) then you’ll want to keep Schwarzwaldstuben in mind.

Situated north from our hostel in Berlin Mitte, on Tucholskystrasse (at the intersection with Linenstrasse), Schwarzwaldtuben is an objectively cool place for painfully cool people who frequent the nearby galleries on Augustrasse. With some great Germanic-with-a-twist food in large portions there’s little reason to move from this bar. It’s great for a quiet lunch or, if you’ve got a group, it can be an excellent place to sit and chat for the evening.
