Loretta am Wannsee
Idyllically located next to the beautiful Wannsee , this popular beer garden is the perfect place to relax on a warm summer evening. It's almost worth coming here alone for the magnificent views over the lake. But it's well worth digging into one of the hearty German meals served up by Loretta, which are best washed down with a cool beer. And just in case the weather turns nasty, there is a large marquee where guests can seek refuge from the rain. You can also try out some of the locald elicacies at their cozy restaurant.
The good news is that Loretta am Wannsee is just on the south side of the train station, just across the street from the water. That makes it an easy trek via train (the S7 line) from just about anywhere in Berlin. And, it's just on the inside edge of the B-zone keeping the ticket price down.
However, I was a bit disappointed that it was set back in the trees away from the water. It was a beautiful, sunny day and I was hoping to enjoy a beer by the water.
The people were nice and spoke enough English to make ordering easy. The food was fine, unremarkable. If you're at the water anyway and this is a stop along the way, go for it. But, I'm not sure I would trek this far out if the weather weren't on your side.
