What's a ruin bar? A place where numerous small bars have taken up in the remnants of a bombed out building. Sound weird but is actually cool and fun. The bars have different drink specialties and character. We had fun although you may run into...More

Great atmosphere, interesting place, excellent modern electro music. Wherever you look around you will see something interesting. It looks dirty, but it is a ruin bar. There are many visitors who give special charm to this place. You should visit this place.

I really liked this bar, there was all sorts of different areas with different bars and music for everyone. The only reason I didn’t give it a 5 is because the toilets are absolutely disgusting.

If you like interiors made of junk, you will love it. Barmen are rude, service is absent at all. Hot like hell in summer.

Plenty of tourists of course but a fun hangout nonetheless. Chill ambience, plenty of barcounters and places to sit and peoplewatch (should you tire of discovering the crazy cool interiors/exteriors). And with a cool vintageshop next door, and plenty of foodtrucks outside you could easy...More
