Good venue, was one of the few places that we managed to get into. Berlin night clubs and bars are unbelievably hard to get into for some unknown reason! Anyways...... the music was very good as was the view of the river. Drinks were reasonably priced.

This was the highlight of my trip! Compared to a lot of clubs in Berlin which are very industrial this one is stunning with lovely views from the dance floor over the river, we saw Extrawelt- absolutely amazing!! A lot of people get refused entry here, recommend going in as couples, know who's playing, don't dress up too much and... More

We were apprehensive before arriving as we had read many stories about people being refused entry, but we had absolutely no problem. The club itself has no sign outside so was a bit difficult to find. The club is great inside, with an outside area with views of the city. The only downside is that it is a bit expensive,... More

A couple of my friends and I wanted to experience Berlin night life because we heard it was very excellent. Unfortunately every club we tried seemed to not let us in, unsure of whether it was because we were american or not. In general it was disappointing to see people treat us not well because of where we came from,... More

It looks like nothing from the outside where the line is. But inside it has a great view of the Spree and the party is on from the moment the doors open (around midnight). Electro kind of music. 25-35 years target group I would guess. 15 euro entrance + 1 euro for jacket.

The bad reviews by people getting bounced make me laugh. If you can't get into Watergate, they did you a favor. It's not for stag nights or people wanting to get bottle service and stand in a corner leering at members of the opposite sex. This place is for getting messed up and dancing to amazing music spun by some... More

Maybe because it was Wednesday, not exactly party night, but half of the club was closed so what was left available was just an average club. The music was good, people ready to party but the overall impression is bellow average. We didn't have any trouble getting in, but a lot of people were bounced at the door. I think... More

It's kinda sad how racism and discrimination is still usual on Berlin clubs, where they doesnt let you in just cause you aren't a blonde german. I don't even like electronic music, went there just because my friends wanted to, and experienced one of the worst nights of my life. Too bad it wasnt only this club, since i saw... More

Watergate has two floors with techno and electronic music and it is across the river. Opposite to it there is the historical site known as Universal Records. Sound system was decent, Djs were great and the view amazing. I appreciated this club and honestly I don' t understand why some people are so upset for the queue's policy. I didn't... More

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighborhood Profile
Kreuzberg
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighborhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and 60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and 90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighborhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
