I’m certainly not the only one, but since I arrived here I’ve been trying to find Berlin’s Best Burger and, for me, Schiller Burger is one of the best.

As they recently opened a third Berlin location, I’m obviously not the only one who thinks so.

A common theme runs through the décor at the three locations: Herrfurthstrasse 7 in Neukölln; Schönleinstrasse 34 in Kreuzberg; and Wühlichstrasse 41/42 in Friedrichshain.

As all three have limited indoor seating, it is worth noting that it is possible to take burgers from the Schiller Burger on Herrfurthstrasse to the Schiller Café a little further along the street – handy in the winter months.

When the sun is shining there are also lots of outdoor seats along the pavement here and Tempelhofer Feld is just around the corner if a summer burger picnic is your thing.

My burger of choice at Schiller Burger is the Chilli Cheeseburger (referred to on the menu as the Wallenstein).

There are slight variations between the burgers at the various locations in Berlin – the Chilli Cheeseburger, for instance, comes with Nachos at the Friedrichshain restaurant.

The basic idea is the same though – juicy, medium-cooked beef, cheese, salad and the kick of a generous serving of Jalapeños in a homemade bun (which is certainly part of what elevates this burger).

Another of the big draws of Schiller Burger for me is their Süßkartoffel Pommes (Sweet Potato Fries), which have an extra crunchy texture and a sweet flavour that enhances my enjoyment of the spicy burger.

To complete the ultimate threesome I add the Aioli – a garlicy punch that ensures maximum enjoyment and knock your socks off breath afterwards.

And to wash all that down I’d recommend a Bayreuther Hell.

Luckily for burger fans, Berlin seems to be teeming with top-notch burger joints, and Schiller Burger is up there with the best.

    We lived across the intersection from the one at Herrfurthstrasse for a few months in 2013. It was awesome. We even ate there for NewYears, getting our burgers half an hour before closing and braving the explosions of Neu Koelln in the 50 meters back to our place. It really is a nice burger place.
    The Chili Cheesburger was my favorite too. And definitely loved the Sweetpotato Fries. I think my only complaint was a lack of seating, but living so close we were able to eat in the quiet of our own apartment which was nice.

      The funny thing is that the seating has never been an issue when I’ve been there. There is always a steady stream of customers but I’ve always had a seat. In the summer, the whole area outside is full of people on a sunny weekend.

    As always, I appreciate the tireless research you do in this important field. On my list to try!

    I like the Schiller Burger too (particularly the Süßkartoffeln Pommes) but my favourite burger place in Schillerkiez is Rundstück, a couple of streets away on Okerstraße – really awesome burgers and the pimientos de padron are just soooo good! Check it out!

      I went to Rundstück Warm last summer at a time when I wasn’t blogging. I’ll have to go back and will definitely give the pimientos de pardon a try. Thanks for the tip.
