With around 110 indoor seats and around 200 outdoor seats on the cathedral side and terrace of the Spree, guests can enjoy the concept of “Bread & Bowls” – selected dishes prepared quickly with attention to the highest quality and combining inspirations from different continents.

Of course, the Humboldt Forum’s sustainability criteria for ‘available’ dishes are also met: the two sites participate in the Recup program and thus actively contribute to the reduction of disposable waste.
At Restaurant Wilhelm, a rich culinary history is celebrated with a casual fine dining concept, which is based on the Humboldt period in Paris, but also has local influences from Berlin.
The classic concept with table service for a total of 102 seats and about 100 outdoor seats at the Schlüterhof under the motto “The best of simplicity, yet skill.” Emphasizes the quality of eclectic German-French cuisine. The regular change of dishes also depends on the various exhibitions in the museum itself. With its spacious area and varied usage options, “Wilhelm Restaurant” is not only suitable for classic use, but also suitable for events of all kinds.
