With Ber­lin sum­mer in full swing, the best place to be is out­doors.

5 BEST OUT­DOOR FOOD AND DRINK

1 STREET FOOD

Eat­ing out­doors is one of sum­mer's great­est plea­sures. In­dulge at Vil­lage Mar­ket, the weekly street-food smor­gas­bord at the über-cool Neue Heimat venue. Be­sides food trucks and stands serv­ing ribs, ice cream, dumplings, and burgers, there's also live mu­sic. Open Sun 12pm-late. Re­valer Str. 99.

2 TO MAR­KET, TO MAR­KET!

Vis­it­ing the farm­ers' mar­ket is a beloved pas­time amongst Ber­lin­ers, who flock to Pren­zlauer Berg's Markt am Koll­witz­platz. Be­tween brows­ing for fresh pro­duce, lo­cal cheese and meats, and peo­ple-watch­ing, you can snack on grilled sausages, fresh-baked goods, falafels, and Nutella-smeared crêpes. Open Thu 12pm–7pm, Sat 9am-4pm. Wörther Straße.

3 GAR­DEN OF PAR­ADISE

Sum­mer = Bier­garten sea­son. This is Ger­many, af­ter all! Idyl­li­cally lo­cated next to a serene pond in Tier­garten park, Café am Neuen See boasts a charm­ing beer gar­den that serves fresh piz­zas and Bavar­ian spe­cial­ties that com­ple­ment its brews. Feel­ing ad­ven­tur­ous? Take a row­boat out for a pad­dle and work off those carbs. Licht­en­steinallee 2.

4 DINE WITH A VIEW

On the banks of one of Ber­lin's most pop­u­lar lakes, Sch­lacht­ensee, Fis­cher­hütte has plenty of out­door seat­ing and serves up tasty Ger­man- Aus­trian cui­sine with a gen­er­ous side por­tion of lake view. Fis­cher­hüt­ten­str. 136.

5 GO THAI

Visit Preußen­park on a week­end af­ter­noon and you'll swear you're in Bangkok. Ber­lin's Thai com­mu­nity sets up here en masse for an in­for­mal event that's part pic­nic, part food mar­ket. Choose from fresh and au­then­tic Thai dishes like spicy green pa­paya salad, siz­zling meat skew­ers, and noo­dle soups, pre­pared right there on the grass. Ev­ery Sat and Sun around 12–4pm.
