Am Wriezener Bahnhof, Berlin, Germany, 10243
One of the best dance clubs in Europe, located in a former power plant in East Berlin. Berghain has become an epicentre for club-goers from around the world.
The stunning size of the main club area (the power plant generating hall), superb sound system and amazing lineup of DJ’s who pump out the very best techno and house sounds. Upstairs is the Panorama Bar, with a slightly more civilised atmosphere and excellent city view. (Lab-oratory, a men-only sex club is a separate venue in the basement with its own entrance and queue.)
Before being able to experience Berghain, you need to get past the highly selective door security team, headed by the now famous Sven Marquardt. Sven said in a recent interview that there are no set rules and that he looks to get the right balance of people in the club.
Berghain started out as a gay club, but now attracts a more diverse crowd. Some suggest that being gay, looking mid 20’s or older and wearing darker colours (nothing too flashy) will improve your chances of entry. Arriving drunk (or on something) or acting like a clown in the line are definite no-no’s.
But once you are in, the experience is amazing. U: Warschauer Straße; S: Ostbahnhof; Bus 240: Franz-Mehring-Platz
