Köpenicker Straße 76
Berlin has not-so-quietly earned a reputation for having some of the best nightlife in all of Europe, and the clubs in Berlin specifically feature some of the most mind-blowing nightlife experiences in the entire world.
Many of the Berlin clubs are simply massive and visually stunning, featuring multiple floors, creative designs and layouts, and state-of-the art lighting and sound systems, and all but a few clubs are open to the masses. The big clubs here also have global reputations for bringing in the best DJs and the craziest crowds and any true clubber would be remiss not to experience them.
Not to say there aren’t ultra exclusive joints as well, where some of the stingiest bouncers can be found manning the doors of high-end haunts. In Mitte, German celebrities and the see-and-be-seen crowd can be found enjoying bottle service and VIP conditions while long red-roped lines are packed with eager made-up partiers waiting to get in.
Berlin’s club scene especially caters to dubstep, house, and techno lovers as some of the genre’s best DJs play on a nightly basis. But for those looking for no-frills clubs without cover charges or simply something different like comedy or jazz, the city provides ample variety for other options as well.
Tying it all together, the late night train service makes it a snap to hit any clubbing area of the city and of course making it back home without worrying about driving or taking cabs.
