How the West was won!
West Berlin is all about sophistication and has a pedigree of glamour that stretches back all the way from Greta Garbo and the Roaring Twenties to the dirty rock’n’roll excess of the Rolling Stones, Iggy Pop, David Bowie and Nick Cave in the crazy seventies and eighties. After the Wall fell, it was all about the East Berlin hip districts of Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg, but now West Berlin is reclaiming the spotlight as an historical and culturally relevant destination. The sweeping, glamorous boulevard of Kurfürstendamm is once again on the radar of foodies thanks to its many truly fabulous restaurants.
The Gastro-Rallye West takes place in the up-market neighbourhoods of Charlottenburg and Wilmersdorf. You will explore West Berlin's unique culture and history with your private lifestyle guide and visit restaurants that reflect the fine dining scene in the West – from local neighbourhood bistros with regional food to stylish gourmet temples with distinguished kitchens.
Inclusions: a 3-course menu (3 restaurants), 1 beverage per location (wine, beer or soft drink), water, coffee with dessert, a private guide and lots of insider tips.
Start: 6.00 or 7.00 pm (every day)
Duration: approx. 4 hours
Meeting point: in front of the entrance of Swiss hotel at U-Bahn station Kurfürstendamm in Charlottenburg
Each culinary stop lasts about 60 to 75 minutes. The tour takes place on foot in any weather and involves a 5- to 15-minute walk between restaurants. In each restaurant the guest will be served one course and one beverage of choice – white or red wine, beer or a soft drink. Additional beverages must be paid in full by the guest to the restaurant at the time of the visit.
