There’s little denying that the scene around the bars and clubs in Berlin represents some of the best nightlife in all of Europe.
Many of Berlin’s clubs are especially stunning, with multiple levels, creative layouts, and state-of-the art lighting systems, yet all but a few clubs are open to just about everyone – exclusive door polices are not the norm in Berlin.
