Berlin is Germany’s gourmet capital, with the most Michelin-starred restaurants in the country. The 2013 Michelin Guide awarded twelve Berlin restaurants with the prestigious stars, including four two-star establishments.
A large percentage of Berlin’s tourists visit a restaurant during their stay. This makes sampling Berlin’s culinary delights by far the most popular activity in Germany’s capital, followed by “strolling in the city” and “sightseeing”.
Among the winners of the new Michelin Guide is Chef Tim Raue. For his work in his eponymous restaurant “Tim Raue”, he has received a second Michelin star, placing him in the good company of Christian Lohse at “Fischers Fritz”, Otto Hendrik at “Lorenz Adlon Esszimmer” and Daniel Achilles at “reinstoff”.
Holding onto one Michelin star each were ”FACIL”, ”First Floor”, ”Hartmanns”, ”Horvárth”, ”Hugos”, ”Margaux”, ”Rutz” and ”VAU”. Because of a change in chef, “Quadriga” was not included in this year’s awards. The “Bib Gourmand” for the best-priced house was given to “Die Nussbaumerin” in Berlin-Charlottenburg.
