OUR ROOMS / APARTMENTS
Most of the time they want to keep them private. We are 11ppl going to Berlin the 31th of May whole weekend. Do you have any good advice on events or places to be with such a big group? Clubs like Astra and Matrix should be easy to get into as well.
But I personally do not like them much. Hi, I am coming to Berlin with a group of 16, which is a little tricky to plan for clubbing. We have a table at Matrix on one night but looking for somewhere else Saturday June 2nd. Any suggestions of parties or clubs where it is easy to get in?
They are both on walking distance from the Matrix and their door-policy is not that strict. Will be in Berlin March 30 — April 2…. Without speaking German, you should come out to the bars with us and we will pay you and buy you drinks to navigate us around on Saturday night? What do you think? I will visit Berlin from march 26 to Friday 30 morning. Are there any interesting events preferably techno during the week? Chalet or Suicide Circus Wednesday: Wilden Renate, Kater Blau. It would be great if you could recommend the best areas to stay and party.
I am looking to experience the local party scene and enjoy some good food. I am very open to the genre of music or theme of the club.
Looking to meet some locals and experience the off beat places. As you can read in the post we would recommend visiting the Kater Blau on Saturday. If you like techno and Berlin you will enjoy that party for sure.
Places to stay is not really my field of expertise: In general I can give you the tip that it does not really matter where you stay as long as the S-Bahn and U-Bahn are closeby. In the category Restaurants you can read more about places I like to eat. I am a solo traveler and I will be in berlin from 29 Dec till 2 , I want to celebrate the new year in fancy place but also I can enjoy the fireworks , what do you recommend?
Op meerdere fronten een fantastische blog. Thanks voor de tips. Van ongeveer 8 — 21 januari ben ik met mijn vriendin voor het eerst in Berlijn. Een van de doelen is een mooi technofeestje meepakken. Komt de party-calendar van januari er binnenkort aan of kun je ons toevallig al iets tippen?
Bewust even in het Engels, je kunt eens op Enjoy-Berlin. Hey Job Amazing blog dude!!! I would appreciate it if u recommend me some good underground parties to go in berlin!! If you like it dark and underground you probably will have a good time in Tresor, Golden Gate and Berghain. Hey, we coming to Berlin from 28th to 1st of December. Do you think that we could find a good party there? We will publish our party-calendar for next month in the end of this month.
There will probably be some good parties listed in there. Hey Job, Originally from NY meatpacking partying district so I want to experience Berlin techno but not in a place where drinks will be spilt all over me, unfortunatly NY made me a bougie vip girl. But as a new berliner I am open to party in a fun more electro envirnoment, any recommendations? It will be crowded in some of the clubs but mostly after Our article for October will be online by the end of this month.
Hello, Im going to Berlin for Moderat concert, do you know any afterparty on the same level?? Hi Job, I am coming to Berlin in October and staying for a 4 days, I have heard so much about the wildest parties in Berlin so i want to experience it. Would love to know about it from you. Your involvement in this blog is great! I am quite of a regular Berlin-visitor but I feel like I would like to discover some new places there.
Does Berlin have anything of a city beach, or some nice water area — where you could relax after hours of dancing? The easiest would probably be to visit the Badeschiff, that is not close from station Schlesisches Tor. If you really want a beach you could go to Strandbad Wannsee. Heading to Berlin July Any weekday events I should check out? On Wednesdays there are some cool parties in the Watergate.
Sunday is actually a great day to party in Berlin. Big clubs like Berghain, Kater Blau and Sisyphos are open from Friday till Monday so you can just check these clubs out.
Are there any gay themed parties on during that time, or what gay places do you recommend in that area? Hi, I already know Berlin as I already spent my last summer there! Thing is, I was nearly 20 years old at that time, so I used a fake railcard quite shit, I still wonder how I could get in to Sysyphos with this. If it worked last time and you still feel comfortable doing it, you might as well do it the same way now. This article is fantastic!
I see there are 2 parties listed for May, however what are just some clubs you personally recommend to check out. Down for anything, just want to have a good time! Thank you in advance and keep up the amazing work! It all depends on what kind of music you want to hear. Most clubs in Berlin focus on Techno. If that is what you are looking for you can just visit one of the clubs in this list. We are arrive at the date the first of may till the third of may.
With some social persons, good music and a very nice atmosphere. There are always a lot of techno-parties in Berlin. On the first of may you can even dance outside in Kreuzberg because it is a national holiday. Great article, really helpfull. Me and my friends are planning to go to Berlin for the Easter break, can I have info about parties in the best clubs of Berlin for those dates?
I hope you will answer as soon as possible to plan at the best our first travel to Berlin to let us enjoy at the best this wonderful city. A friend and I will be visiting in April so hopefully you have another April post coming. Is there a specific club that caters more to this genre or is it best to follow events where specific DJs are playing? It is probably best if you choose an event with a DJ you like.
Most Clubs focus on Techno and the clubs which do not, have a versatile program with different music-styles every weekend. We will publish a party-calendar for April, you will be able to find it under the same URL as the current article. We love deephouse ourselves so our suggestions might be a good option for you guys.
When can we expect a party calendar for January? Now… I have a little question. We publish a party-calendar every month so the next one will be published in the end of August. Can you recommend a good bar in mitte? We love deephouse mainly — Looking forward to a night clubbing too! We are 2 , 38yrs old, guys planning to visit berlin, in September 21 till Are there any recommended clubs, events, bars for yrs old?
We love classic club trance but enjoy any house parties. There are occasional plus parties in Berlin but most of the time they focus on 90s-Music. The page of the event is: So unfortunately we will not be adding any events to the calendar. Besides that we also want to visit a party first before we will write about it, otherwise we would just be guessing which party is good. Just arrived in Berlin for this week till the 15th , have you any suggestions for this week?
There are some proper parties this weekend which you can find in the article. During the week there are also several parties. Check the website Resident Advisor, there you can find some of them. Hi, We are planning to be in Berlin for 26th Aug — 29th Aug Something along the likes of Paul Van Dyke etc.
Not many clubs already published their parties for August right now. We are two guys going to Berlin next weekend to party hard. Do you have any tips if we are not super interested in what music is played but rather a fun and cool atmosphere where you can meet girls? Great blog and advices. We are not sure if we can find a great club on sunday. Maybe u may have some advice for us. Do u think we can find open club on sunday?
But yes, there are plenty of clubs which are still open on Sunday: Kater Blau, Sisyphos, Berghain are just a few of them. We are old men reliving our youth in th s!
Most clubs focus on Techno and the harder music-styles but you might get lucky in some clubs. But it is hard to tell you which club because the programs are not scheduled yet. Maybe have a look at Resident Advisor yourself, that is where you can find many parties in Berlin. So in the end it all depends on the line-up of that specific party. Personally I like Deephouse more than Techno so if you find an event in my calendar it might suit your taste. Another tip might be to listen to some livesets of the DJs before the party.
I mostly present links in the article. Hi nice article , Planning to be in Berlin 2 to 10 August any thing you know will be during this time Thanks Kosala. Furthermore im 18 and I would like to know if you know a place were we can go party. My friends and I are going to be there in early July for the week sadly not on the weekend Thanks!! Have a look at Resident Advisor yourself and you will definitely find some great parties. When are you gonna post for July? Friends and I are gonna be there early July.
We are looking for a place were we can get waisted and have a great time. It all depends on your taste of music. I will publish a party-calendar for July in the end of June. So maybe check it out and see what I am suggesting in there. Thank you for the fast response.
Appreciate it , -Patrick. You could hire a raft , visit an open-air or have a barbecue in the park somewhere. Hi, are there some page, there would be posted about really good raves in Germany, especially Berlin? Prefer PSY, hardcore, tekno. So you can always check this page if you are looking for some great parties in Berlin.
Hi, really good article. It is easier to get in and they have three different floors so you will probably find some music you like. The new Magdalena is also an option because they have an incredible sound-system since they have reopened. But the crowd is different than the visitors of the Berghain or Ritter Butzke. Trying Kater Blau would be a risk: You do not want to get refused two times in a row and the Kater Blau is not easy to get in either.
Have a look at their websites if anything comes up in the next months. This is a very helpful article! We had Berghain, Tresor, Cookies and Gretchen on our list and Stattbad, — but read above that they closed? We like all kinds of music like techno, alt rock, hip hop… Any good suggestions for that weekend? We are hoping for Sat night. Any advice is greatly appreciated!! My suggestions for February are online right now but Kater Blau and Watergate are not the most easiest places to get into.
You will get in for sure and the prices are great. Maybe have a look on their website what will happen this weekend. Keep an eye on our Facebook as well, we are allowed to give away plenty of guestlist-spots every month.
Great recommendations I am heading to Berlin tomorrow ,will be seeing disclosure on the 12th. Cant wait to check out the nightlife. Hi, what an awesome program!
Do you plan to make the same monthly program for January?! We were there years ago, good souvenir! Is it definitive closing? Thanks, and Joyeux Noel to all of you Sylvain. Yes, I am writing a similar post every month. In January there will be lots of cool parties and even some give-away tickets.
So be patient for 2 more weeks and the article will be online. Stattbad is closed already, from what I heard they did not have a valid permit. It is sad indeed. Would appreciate recommendation for clubs the night of of December. No long lines, please. This is where they offer different music-styles and no lines. Hey…so sorry to butt in. My boyfriend and I will be in Berlin from 24th to 28th December.
Before hitting the clubs later in the evenings, we would fancy some nice, warm bars to get the evenings going. Some great bar suggestions? Thank you so much! Berlin has loads of cool bars. The bar Dachkammer is great and also Mein Haus am See is still one of my favourites. I like deephouse myself and some of the Djs above are playing that music.
I would request you to advise us where to go on the 2,3 and 4 th October? Unfortunately I have not checked the parties for October but I will publish that article next week. We only discuss the weekends in this article but you will defenitely be able to find some cool parties on these days as well.
Staying in Prenzlauer Berg. Where would you recommned on a Wednesday and Thursday night? We love a range of music including dance and RnB. Also, how easy is it to get around on an evening? Are trams available or would we need taxis? Seriously looking into Watergate?! Thanks for your comment. Saturday will be the 22rd and you will probably like the Ritter Butzke and the DJs who are playing there. Being present in the moment can entirely change the way we cooperate, create, lead and inspire others.
