Berlin Food Week: The House of Food Opens Its Doors

By Andrew Cottrill . October 2, 2015

This weekend, the House of Food (the star attraction of Berlin Food Week 2015) opens its doors at Kraftwerk, Kreuzberg, to food lovers young and old.


Now, as a food writer for Berlin Loves You, every week is Berlin Food Week. But, for the next three days at least, you all get to experience the best food Berlin has to offer.

The House of Food is more like a palace of food, filling the humongous Kraftwerk venue with kitchens serving food and drink from all around the world – and plenty of free samples and tasting sessions.

The Restaurant Street area (that’s right, a street inside a house) offers a veritable world map of culinary delights, ranging from €3-€10 per dish. View all of kitchens exhibiting here.

And what’s a Berlin street without a Späti? Well, in this case it’s a Späti-Deluxe, a Späti stocked with Berlin’s finest drinks, snacks and products – everything from traditional, age-old Berlin companies to start-ups and artisans. To find out what’s in store, click here.

The House has a kitchen (well, several actually) where you can take part in workshops, learn cooking tips and tricks from some of our top chefs, or simply watch the professionals at work. There’s even a chance to bake your own bread with Bonativo and Brot für die Welt. Also, there will be many competitions and prizes (including an area specifically for children). To find out what’s going on at the Actionküche, follow this link.

And, like all good houses, the House has a garden. A biergarten, to be exact. There will be plenty of bars and quality booze vendors to wash all that food down – including Pilsner Urquell’s biergarten bar selling their hallowed unpasturised Tank Bier direct from Pilsen, Czech Republic.

The House of Food is running until this Sunday. Entry costs €10 and you can pay on the door or you can book your place online.
