The Berlin Wall came down twenty-one years ago. If your travels take you to Berlin, don’t miss The Knoblauchhaus (Garlic House), an original town house at the Nikolaiviertel. It’s one of the few houses of the Old Berlin that was left unharmed by war. Commissioned by Johann Christian Knoblauch — the building was completed in 1761. In 1989, the same year the wall came down, the family donated it to the state as a museum. Inside, you can see how the wealthy Berliners lived in the 19th century.
Nearby, the cozy Wurstaus zum Nussbaum (Walnut Inn) serves traditional (ultra-hearty) Berlin cuisine from “mother’s original recipes.” See if knoblauch wurst (garlic sausage) is on the special’s menu. Guten appetit und prost!
