To me Zum Nu├čbaum is a must see, if only to walk down the historically re-created streets between the Rotes Rathaus and the river Spree in the Nikolaiviertel (named so for the massive, and historic, Nikolai Church which is directly opposite).

I can't do any better than the two reviews before me have done as they clearly explain it, although I have sampled the food. I stopped in here with my family in December of 2015 after wandering through the Weihnachtsmarkt around Marien Church. It was fairly empty, and we had a light lunch, sharing a few items. The menu was basic, traditional German fare, and everyone was pleased with their meal, including my mother-in-law who's from Berlin. I felt the prices were fair, and not particularly marked up at all in comparison to the places nearby.

I'd suggest that even if you're not interested in eating, take a look and maybe grab a beer.

Visited on the afternoon of 28/09/2010

Located very close to Georgbrau, and in the Nikolaivertel, across from the Nikolaikirche.

A replica of a pub that was bombed in 1943, and originally stood in Alt-Colln.

In certainly a picturesque quaint area of Berlin, this pub stands, with its lemon yellow walls and red steep sloping roof. There is a commerative plate to the original pub on the side wall.

Inside, its a series of 3 cramped rooms, walking in the first room, you are faced with the bar and a Stammtisch in the right hand corner, toward the left is another room of 3 tables( where we sat), lit with hanging lights, quaint country cottage lace curtains and dark wood tables. This theme continues into the back where another 4-5 tables are, decorated in the same fashion.

Busy on a Tuesday afternoon although this wasnt difficult due to lack of seating, the place had a lovely bustling vibe with a mix of old and young drinking and eating. I felt like i was drinking in someones front room.

Service was quick and efficient, from the waiteress and waiter she replaced at the end of his shift.

Quality of beer was excellent, sampling the Berliner Kindl Pilsner and a dunkler bock which was very tasty.

Selection was small but fine - Berliner Kindl Pils, Rex Pils, an unknown dunkler bock and Markiscker Landmann Schwarzbier.

Food wasnt sampled but the Bouletten (burgers to me) looked pretty tasty. Typical Berliner fare.

The best thing about this pub i would say is its socialable cosy atmosphere. With a half litre of that bock, it was certainly an enjoyable time and a surprisingly good place to people watch coming and going. Would definitely go back next time in Berlin.

Right opposite the Nickolai Kirche (Church), this pretend old pub was built in 1987, the original (1571) stood miles away and I believe was bombed during WW11.

We entered and the very small bar is straight in front of you. To the left is the main seating and largest room. We however turned right and a little 'Stammtich' which had been hidden from view was sat in a small alcove. The Stammtich (Locals Table) was empty and we asked if we, as visitors could use it (as you always should). We were honoured to be told we could.

I had a very nice Berliner Kindl Bock, the rest had Pilsners, all good and obviously in the correct glasses. The staff were pleasant and attentive, other customers were all German and most likely tourists like ourselves. Otherwise the Stammtich wouldn't have been devoid of life.

I have read that the new Zum Nussbaum (Hazlenut Tree) is a faithful replica of the original, it maybe but the toilets are modern and so is the outside. The inside is all dark wood and the lighting doesn't try to hard to illuminate the place, adding to the image of this being an old building. All very tastefully done.

Well worth finding and close to a few other good places for a beer or three.
