Since many years the Kastanienallee is a meeting place for trendy Berlin and international scene tourists, earning her the nickname “Casting Allee”. For many people, walking this street is the best area for a typical berlin shopping stroll. Between the small quaint shops, there are plenty of places from which people can watch the bustle.

The Kastanienallee was created 1826 by Wilhelm Griebenow; the planting of Buckeyes as avenue trees gave the street its name. Berlin’s oldest beergarden Prater, which opened in 1852, is here still to be found.

The restaurants along Kastanienallee and the adjacent side streets serve culinary delights from all over the world, from German cuisine on Spanish tapas to French, Mexican and Asian specialties. Tantalize your taste buds with Lebanese cuisine at Babel Restaurant on Kastanienallee 33 or eat something lighter at Laim Restaurant, where Mediterranean specialties are being offered. It is located on Kastanienallee 15. At the popular Prater garden you can enjoy hearty, German food and in the months of April-September also visit the beer garden where you can expect a nice atmosphere.

The Kastanienallee is just a few meters away from the Hotel Zarenhof Prenzlauer Berg.
