For country-house charm in the middle of Berlin, look no further than the Altes Zollhaus restaurant, directly on the Landwehr Canal in Kreuzberg. The half-timbered building was originally built as the depot for Berlin’s city cleaning service, and then, at the beginning of the 20th century, was used as a control point for Berlin’s steam ships.

For over 25 years our restaurant has boasted and offered guests space in the 5m high attic underneath original exposed wooden beams, as well as in the guestroom. In summer, you can also eat and enjoy a glass of wine in our garden, which looks directly onto the Landwehr Canal.

„At Alten Zollhaus, we are committed to DELICIOUS LOCAL CUISINE, and try our best to prepare both classic and modern dishes using only the best regional ingredients.“
Herbert Beltle - Owner

On our menu, you will find only dishes prepared using ingredients sourced from regional suppliers, created by our owner, Herbert Beltle, and Head Chef, Günter Beyer.

Our wine list focuses on wines from Germany and Austria, and offers an abundance of rarities and grand crus.

Our Dishes

Head Chef Günter Beyer: “Our classic is the roasted Brandenburg farm duck with savoy cabbage and potato fritters. It’s been on the Alten Zollhaus menu for over a quarter of a century and is still one of our guests’ favourites.

But we are also happy to indulge you with entrecôte or zander.

Another classic is the crema catalana with blueberries in a Cassis sauce, which is caramalised in front of you at your table.

But take a look at the menu for yourself...”
