The Ganymed Brasserie (or Ganymed) is a restau­rant locat­ed by the riv­er Spree in the bor­ough of Mitte. It is known for its clas­sic and ele­gant ambiance, offer­ing a mix of French and Ger­man cui­sine.

After his vis­its to the Berlin­er Ensem­ble, Bowie would fre­quent­ly dine at the Ganymed restau­rant next door. Pro­duc­er Tony Vis­con­ti called it a ‘time machine’, as the oth­er patrons there seemed to belong to a bygone era.
