View of Berlin

Here's the list of the best clubs in Berlin that you should definitely check out.

Berghain

Best Electronic nightclub in Berlin!
Berghain

New York has swag, Rome has history, and Berlin has legendary nightlife. And perhaps no club in Berlin (or the world, for that matter) is more hallowed than Berghain. Set in a former East German power station, this cavernous, nondescript warehouse is the Holy Grail for techno fans, hosting three-day-long debauchery-induced raves. Every weekend, the club attracts some of the best DJs from all over the planet to spin and pump beats so intense that they ring in your bones instead of your ears. These days, the club’s notoriously hard door policy is as famous as the club itself. But if you don’t make it past the 1,000-foot cue, don’t fret: Berghain is just one of more than 200 clubs in Berlin. And from techno temples to mellow canal-side haunts, there's something here for everyone.
