Visited this unique restaurant, moored in a Berlin canal, with a larger group booking. The buffet food was pretty awful. While this is supposed to be a "seafood" restaurant, we were served other items that were only warm and not particularly appetizing. There was a...More

Doing a cycle tour away from tourist crowds and then hang out a bit at Van Loon for doing some Brotzeit and refreshment! Yes this is the real thing on a sunny afternoon!

We sat upstairs for a family gathering. Food, coffee, and drinks were good and the service friendly, not exactly super-fast, though. Great view (with great weather).

We went to there with my friends on sunday. The waiters, the ambiance and all the seafoods were perfect. There was a musician man and the weather was sunny.

Had drinks and snacks at van loon yesterday as it was docked in its usual Paul lincke ufer location. Wonderfully relaxing location, food looked great and will definitely return as the open kitchen and restaurant below deck both looked very promising.

We already had the opportunity to dine at the Vanloon ship itself, a great place to hang out at the shore of the canal - the Landwehrkanal - and enjoy a meal and a couple of drinks. The choice of white and red vines are...More

Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can
both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central
neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the
1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around
Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s,
rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a
carefree life here. An old hospital even became a
hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today
