Top ways to experience Berghain and nearby attractions

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Friedrichshain
When you arrive at Warschauer Strasse in the heart of the district, you have found one of Berlin’s party hotspots. At night in Friedrichshain, the energy is palpable and the streets of this old worker's quarter are full of street musicians. On one hand, you may find a bar with international crowds, electronic music, long lines and panoramic views - on the other, an outside venue by old train yards featuring decrepit buildings and live alternative music. No matter your taste, the best way to end a night out in Friedrichshain is sitting by the Spree River at the East side gallery, the longest and best preserved piece of the Berlin Wall, watching the sun rise over the beautiful Oberbaum Bridge.

Spectacular building, amazing sound system and lovely people. The kindness in there struck me many times. The bouncers can be harsh and I don't deny that they are extremely rude for no reason to people who in my opinion absolutely deserve to get in.

But I also have to say that I always felt very safe and comfortable in there as a woman. There is no unwanted touching, no harassment. People are respectful, have an understanding of consent and deeply appreciate the music. The atmosphere is captivating and the collective energy gets me ecstatic every time! I love the lighting and it does have a spiritual feel to it somehow. It's called church for a reason.

I love it. And I really miss it!

My 2nd favourite club. My first time, think it was in 2019 (maybe 2018) I tought it would be difficult to get in because off all the stories you read on the internet.

I went to a Slowmotion- party in the Kantine (garden Berghain) and when the party was over I walked towards Berghain to go to the street and take a cab to the hotel. But I saw Sven and another bouncer where standing outside, so I tought: I'll just gonna try (I don't even like Techno). I got in without any problem and had a very nice time. I went back the day after and by now, I've been there several times. Everytime without any problem getting in!

Now it's my 2nd favourite club (cause I'm still not a big Techno-fan :p).

Every time again I had the time of my life. Because I'm not into Techno, obviously I'm not gonna stand in the line waiting for hours and I also only go after (or sometimes before) the party's with my genre music.

I love the people there (my kind of people, not judgemental in any way), Love the atmosphere, even love the cappuccino there, .. I love everything about it!! I just really love beiing there and can stay there for hours, having the time of my life and can't wait to go back as soon it's possible again (Covid) <3 <3

We got in the club at 12.30 luckily, after an hour queuing (we arrived at 23.30).
From the moment that you step inside this place, the atmosphere and the music bring you on a different planet.
A must!
Please do not pay attention at the negative comments that are posted by people who did not manage to get in. This club seeks for diversity and although many things are possible within the premises, people are kind and respectful!

I have been in Berlin 6 times and have tried Berghain 3. I am a techno lover, all times I know what is going on and who's playing yet all 3 times I have been denied entrance. Once on a Friday night at 4am as a group of 3. Once on a Saturday at 5am as 2 and once on Sunday night around midnight as a group of 3 again(years 2018,2019 and 2020). It never seems to matter. The way I dress never seems to matter, the way I look at them never seems to matter. They look down on you like you're a low life pariah and do not even converse. "You dont get in" and point with a finger to go away. 3 times this! Well thanks a lot Berghain but you have really done it for me. Even if you begged me to go in there after the amount of times your door pigs have ruined my holiday and my nights I wouldn't go. I really do not get how this place is still running and also who's running it! I also do not get why really amazing djs who I do like and see elsewhere in the world keep playing there... so disappointed...

I have been techno lover for the last18 years of my life (37 now). For me, techno community is inclusive and nonjudgmental, specially when it comes to clothes. I went to Berghein because I wanted to experience their sound system and enjoy music. Was refused 2 times. As I understand, there is really no rules but if you are a man dressing like woman, woman dressing like a man, animal, sado/maso or anything that is extravagant, you're definitely in. It is really not about music at the door, maybe it becomes about the music later. I think it was such a downer to be refused because any obvious reason but on the other side, Berlin is full of other clubs and Berghein is definitely not the only one where the music is in focus. Find some other place, less commercial and support Berlin underground scene. Berghein is just a big business, it is not art. :)

Don’t lose your time going to this club. No place in te world is greater than an individual. The place’s staff choose who to get in based on looks, and other futile criteria never disclosed. By itself, this is a racist and completely discriminatory practice that only puts the club status inside gay scene into shambles. You basically arrive at the door, do nothing wrong, and come out with the impression that you are not good enough to get inside. The club understand it is better than some people. Completely ridiculous. This is on the most diverse and free city of the word. A piece of United States racism inside Eastern Germany.

It was our last night in Berlin so we said let’s give it a try. Before I didn’t even know how popular and exclusive the club was as I am not into techno, so very happy we could get in without troubles. The atmosphere is so another level and you’ll be trapped in and I enjoyed it so much, even it can seem a little intense at first. Also felt very safe as a women, even it can seem a bit crazy there, everyone’s really respectful and friendly! Talked with many people there and they all were really kind. Just enjoying the moment and being who they are.

Almost cult like organisation, strange place wouldn't recommend to anyone..... The patrons are absolute snobs... Who will say things like "you don't know how to behave at Berghain" its a nightclub not a church...and a pretty messed up one at that.

Hilarious reading the comments of people who didn’t get in. If I’ve never been to a restaurant coz I didn’t manage to get a reservation, I won’t write a bad review afterwards.
I am Latino and I do not speak german so to say they are racist is just dumb.
Been going to Berghain regularly for more than 11 years. Always the best experience no other club does come even close.

I went to the famous rubber party in the club lab.oratory which is considered as part of Berghain. It is like a huge industrial hall, dark, mysterious. The crowd was great although it was a huge show off. More talking than anything else.
Prices are alright. It is a bit hard to find. You have to walk to the left side of the Berghain main entrance.
