On the roof of Humboldt Forum lies Baret, a new restaurant concept named after the pioneer and explorer Jeanne Baret. At about thirty metres above the terrain, it not only offers stunning views of Berlin, including the Museum Island, Alexanderplatz, the Berlin Cathedral and St. Mary’s Church, but also culinary highlights and a relaxed atmosphere. Just as Jeanne Baret dreamed of exploring the world, Baret takes its guests on an exciting journey when treats from the international cuisine are presented on the plate.

Named after the famous female pioneer and explorer Jeanne Baret, the restaurant makes a visit to Humboldt Forum rewarding, not only for those interested in history and the arts but also for anyone with a culinary passion.
In addition to the stunning view of the German capital from the rooftop patio, the restaurant offers an equally fascinating interior, where Dinesen Layers Oak creates an inviting and welcoming atmosphere for the restaurant guests. The oak planks contrast the otherwise dark interior to create a dynamic experience in an interplay with other natural materials, such as stone, cork, wool and plants, referencing the scientist Alexander von Humboldt’s own collections.
The restaurant concept was created by Arthur Schuller, a young entrepreneur who has experience with cultural gastronomy. To supplement his own creative capacity, Schuller brought in the interior designer Joscha Brose, the strategist Alexandra Mittag and the graphic design studio Grook.
