Rich in tradition, the beer house and restaurant has been located since 1905 at Mommsenstraße 45, between Mommsenstraße and Giesebrechtstraße on Hindemith square with its beautiful Bavarian fountain.

The pub, as well as the street, received their names from the honorary citizen of Charlottenburger, Theodor Mommsen (1817 -1903), a lawyer and historian who was Professor of ancient history in Berlin from 1858, and who received a Nobel Prize in 1902.

Its respectable age has had its effect on the interior; everything appears real and substantial. A portion of the wall paneling from 1905 is preserved to this day. Through the years Mommsen-Eck has constantly been growing. A clever architect harmoniously fitted a glass-walled winter garden onto the interior rooms. Also, a pleasant beer garden surrounds the Mommsen-Eck from April to October. Pub fans and beer freaks, skat aficionados, theater enthusiasts, thinkers and debaters, singles and pairs, academics and common laborers have all been meeting since way back when in the Mommsen-Eck.

Novelists like Eise Lasker-Schüler and Erich Mühsam, theater people like Rudolf Nelson or filmstar Hildegard Knef, as well as the "Bacillus doctor", Robert Koch, frequented the Mommsen-Eck. Even today, one meets famous and prominent people from Berlin and elsewhere.

In a time when the customer is all too often dealt with as a nuisance, it is important that there are places where "the guest is not a disruption of the work, but rather its end and be all," as one waitress put it.

Fresh from 14 taps, we draw lager and dark beers of world-famous breweries such as Warsteiner, Jever, Bitburger, König-Pilsener, Budweiser, Pilsner Urquell, Berliner Kindl Jubiläums Pilsener, Köstritzer, Weihenstephan Hefeweizen, Kloster Andechs, Gaffel Kölsch, Diebels Alt, Duckstein and Guinness.

There is something for every taste. We serve the finest draft beers in Berlin and we serve them right.

A draft beer is served right:

  • When the temperature of the beer in the keg is about 5°C and about 8°C out of the tap;
  • When the beer lines are refrigerated all the way to the taps, are not longer than 3 meters, and are cleaned every 2 weeks
  • When the beer is served in a fitting, wet glass
  • When the beer is expertly drawn with the correct pressure
  • When the ambience is right

A well-drafted beer takes time.
