Cafe Kranzler isn’t just a normal hipster coffee shop in the West of Berlin. Only a few know that there’s a history hidden under the red-white rotunda. 

I mean: Did you know that Cafe Kranzler has already been founded in the 19th century and has been well-known for its food and traditional pot of coffee? Also – that it got destroyed during the 2nd world war? The old-new coffee shop got a make over last year and offers its clients a brand-new feeling and atmosphere. 

Among all marble elements, such as cups and tables, and wooden furniture an absolute eye-catcher is definitely the staircase in the middle of the space. In good weather, you will also have the possibility to enjoy your coffee outside on the terrace with an amazing view over Ku’Damm.


  • Location: Kurfürstendamm 18 | 10719 Berlin
  • Opening hours: Monday – Saturday | 10am – 8pm |

As always, I went for a cup of cappuccino – I mean, why change your preferences, if you’re happy with it, right? And it hasn’t disappoint at all. The intensity of caffeine is just perfect. No wonder, since Cafe Kranzler belongs to “The Barn” owner Ralf Rüller.

By the way: next to coffee and cake, you will be able to buy some coffee beans and chocolate. Yay, home cravings… SAVED!
