Being over 100 years old, this “Old Love” might be the oldest there is. Old love is the translation of Alte Liebe, a ship which was built the same year as the Titanic, back in 1912. Today it is anchored at the shore of Stößensee and lures passengers from all over the city with a wide variety of fish dishes and a great location to watch Berliner sunsets. The ship used to be a ferry boat in Hamburg in its past life, before it was relocated to Berlin in the 70s.
Alte Liebe – the restaurant – has been a family business for generations, long before they took over the ship. And the menu serves as proof of this time: from Berliner Sülze and turkey steak to summer salads, one can find a mix of traditional and light dishes here. So it is not all about fish. And if the highly applauded food or the abundance of green and water do not bring you over here, then the history of the place will. You can combine this stop with a walk on the Peacock Island, another Berlin story. The historical bus 218 connects Alte Liebe with the island. The bus stops right in front of the ship, once every hour. Times passes by differently around here.
Tip: Make sure to reserve a table, with some luck, you might even get a seat on the deck.
