Koepenick is a pleasant suburb in the south east of Berlin which appears (somewhat unusually) to have the only Ratskeller in the entire city. For the those, like me, who seek out these places to enjoy a traditional German meal this place is a must. Many towns across Germany have a municipal restaurant like this in/under their town hall. Either run by the city itself or franchised to a local business, it is a matter of civic pride that these municipal enterprises create a good impression. Koepenick Ratskeller does exactly that. It has a substantial menu of good local fare and an extensive drinks list served in a traditional cellar (or in good weather you can sit outside and watch the trams go by). The service is polite and efficient without being over-friendly. The prices are reasonable.
Getting there is a bit of a challenge but worth it. S-Bahn 3 to Koepenick station then tram 62 or 68 to the Rathaus. The trams run in a one way loop in the streets around the Rathaus, so be careful you get one going in the right direction going home ! Don't forget to meet the eponymous Captain whose statue stands on the Town Hall steps. His story makes very interesting reading
