One of the quintessential experiences in Berlin is sipping a cold brew in a picturesque beer garden. From historic spots to modern hangouts, Berlin's beer gardens offer a delightful blend of ambiance, cuisine, and, of course, excellent beer.

As soon as warmer weather is on the horizon, we get asked by teams which beer gardens to head off to. So, here’re our top 10 beer gardens in Berlin, each with its unique charm and character, as chosen by our Urban Challenger team.

Whether you're a local seeking to soak in some sunshine with your mates, or just visiting and looking to soak in Berlin's laid-back atmosphere, these beer gardens are a must-visit, if we may say so ourselves. Without further ado, let’s dive in Urban Challenger’s top 10 beer gardens in Berlin.

This beer garden, which offers traditional German cuisine, owes its name to the lock at the Lower Freiarchen Bridge right next door. Here you can enjoy a beer in a comfortable atmosphere, and the adjacent Tiergarten invites you to a pleasant walk in the green. In addition to the classic dishes, good beer and vegan currywurst, the large selection of cakes and the barbecue in summertime are remarkable.
