Schneeweiß – Snowwhite design with Alpine food

A restaurant designed completely in white – that was the idea of the two founders of “Schneeweiß” (which means Snow White) 8 years ago. So Ralf Kern, originally musician and hobby cook and Dennis Ranogajec who organized events created together with a friends architect a space where a straight design comes together with a clear culinary concept.

Started as low budget project this restaurant turned out to be something special: Schneeweiß received the iF Design Award and was also nominated for the German Design Award. While creating the concept for this place the founders asked themselves: What fits Snow White? The Alps! So today the menu consists of alpine classics mixed and newly interpreted with modern Central European kitchen. So it seems more than a funny coincidence that the street in which Schneeweiß is situated is named after the Swiss high mountain pass Simplon Pass.

But this place has nothing in common with a traditional Après Ski cottage, fortunately! While sitting on the white side benches the huge chandelier in the middle of the dining room catches your eyes. In a hidden fireplace room you are invited to smoke your cigars and have some drinks after a frosty day outside.

Schneeweiß now resides, since 2005, in a hidden corner of Friedrichshain. Situated between the hotspots Ostkreuz and Simon-Dach-Straße one might think that not many people find their way to this beautiful place. But even on weekdays you should reserve your table before visiting.
