For me, this is one of the best ice cream shops in Berlin. Have a scoop of apple crumble and salted butter caramel and take a stroll down picturesque Akazienstraße. Their home made cones are a MUST! While you’re at it, also get the home made cookies and one of the 450ml ice cream tubs since they are good value for money.
On sunny days, the line in front of Hokey Pokey can be easily confused with a queue to a club, that’s how popular it is. Rumour has it, the neighbours were complaining about the neverending line of people, so the owner raised the prices, hoping fewer people would come. He was wrong, everyone kept coming back. Try the flavours Rocky Road, Blueberry Baiser or eponymous Hokey Pokey.
There’s a new star on the ice cream horizon called PAR Creamery. They always come up with new creative flavours and the service is impeccable. I will never forget how my friend accidentally dropped his ice and was offered a new scoop free of charge. This place certainly knows how to keep customers. The crunchy peanut butter ice cream is my favourite there.
Vanille & Marille was one of the first places in Berlin that started the home made ice cream revolution, so it will always have a special place in my heart. Started 2009 in a backyard in Kreuzberg, they have now expanded to seven more shops around Berlin. In addition to the classics, they also offer a great selection of vegan, lactose and gluten free options.

Tribeca Ice Cream
This fairly new ice cream shop is totally plant based. All of the wonderfully inventive flavours are made with nuts and raw organic coconut oil. Blue coconut, matcha white chocolate, pistachio lucuma: vegan never looked and tasted this good!
At Woop Woop, you can watch the fascinating process of ice cream making with liquid nitrogen: all ingredients are mixed together and then shock frosted at -196 degrees. The ice cream will come out super fresh and creamy. The cold ice cream is enjoyed best served in a hot bubble waffle.
Getting ice cream at Eismanufaktur and then going for a walk along Landwehrkanal is one of my long standing traditions when meeting up with friends in Kreuzberg. As they keep getting more popular, they have opened six shops around the city. Notable flavours here are matcha, karamell fleur de sel and strawberry mint.
Amorino’s authentic gelato creations are a feast for the eye as they come in the form of flowers. Create your own floral bouquet by choosing as many flavours as you like. Once there, also try their macarons filled with ice cream.
This ice cream parlour hasn’t been around for a long time, yet word on the street is that it is one of the best in the area. Not only do they have a big selection of ice cream, but their staff is also very friendly and attentive.
