Berlin has a number of great wine bars to choose from. One of the classiest is Weinbar Rutz, which boasts a Michelin star and is said to have the best Riesling list in Germany.
A more traditional wine bar is Prenzlauer Berg’s Weinstein, near Hemholz Platz, which has the feel of Old World Germany and carries a diverse list.
For a low-key experience, head to Weinerei, near to Zionskirchplatz, where you’ll find living room style décor and a laissez faire honor system policy—after enjoying the selection of wines, guests are simply asked to leave the price they think is fair.
And just off of Mitte’s trendy Rosenthaler Strasse, Muret la Barba is a great Italian bistro and wine shop, where you’ll find a large variety of wines to both purchase and sample. The classic menu, with charcuterie and housemase pastas, is also worth trying.
