Where Berlin - - BERLIN MANUAL -

Ac­cord­ing to lo­cals, life’s too short not to in­dulge as of­ten as pos­si­ble in a foamy glass of beer un­der a green tree canopy. Jump right into the quin­tes­sen­tial Bier­garten tra­di­tion at Prater (Kas­tanien­allee 7–9, www.prater­, the old­est beer gar­den in the city, where you can en­joy beer and tra­di­tional Ger­man spe­cial­ties in the shade of chest­nut trees. An­other fa­vorite is Brauhaus Rix­dorf in Neukölln (Gla­sower Str. 27, www.brauhaus-rix­, which also has its own brew­ery and tra­di­tional Ger­man restau­rant, as well as a large pa­tio with TV screens, should you want to catch a EURO 2016 soc­cer game. Per­haps the most idyl­lic of all beer gar­dens is the pond-side

Café am Neuen See in the mid­dle of Tier­garten park, where you can pad­dle in a rented boat be­fore re­lax­ing with a beer and de­li­cious

Flammkuchen (pizza-like flat­bread with sour cream and leek).
