Solar is a great place to go for dinner and drinks. It was really good. Our waiter, Mel, was the best ever. So friendly and very good explaining the menu and making recommendations. He made the experience fun!! The view is great. Fun bar above dining. I would suggest reservations. A little bit tucked away from the street but taxi... More

Located at the top of a socialist architecture building, it offers a special feeling already when one enters and is welcomed into a panoramic elevator to reach the Resto. The view is stunning both from the Resto and from the bar (this latter located at the upper floor). The menu is short and well done already providing hints of professionalism... More

We got to Solar by a recommendation of a tourist guide. The place is very popular with German and consist of two floors: the first is for dining and eating and the second is like a bar. Both floors have big see through windows that gives you a great city view. Prices are quite high, but view and atmosphere are... More

Highly recommend a visit here for a beer or glass of wine. It's got amazing views across the city, and plenty of comfortable seating. Not as expensive as I thought it might have been. Didn't eat here, but did visit twice - once around sunset and once later in the evening, to see the differences.

A bit of a trick to find this place, but once you do, it's well worth it! Located on the 16th floor with windows on 3 sides, the views of the city are spectacular! The restaurant provides a fine dining experience with a variety of options on the menu. My meal looked and tasted amazing! After dinner we went upstairs... More

Expensive overrated food. The meat was low quality, the service is slow. Plus, the insolence of some people working there is ridiculous, the location is simply spoiled by these elements.

The bar's service is super slow, we had to wait 20 minutes to get a pricy cocktail, served by a grumpy girl who made us feel like we were disturbing her. Not to mention the other staff working there, very rude and impolite, the whole thing lacks planning. It's just not worth the view.

The location was in an alley located right behind our hotel (Suites Novotel), so it was literally walking distance. We didn't get to try the restaurant because it was full so we went straight to the Rooftop Bar. It gives you a sight of Berlin at night, and you can see the Berlin TV Tower (Alexanderplatz) and other Berlin skyline.... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Kreuzberg
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighbourhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
