It’s impossible to start our list of the best clubs and nightclubs in Berlin without mentioning the Berghain. A former power station, this club is iconic in the German capital.

Known as “the techno capital of the world”, this place will keep you dancing until the early hours of the morning.

That being said, it’s hard to get in. Go for a chill (almost nonchalant) attitude and a style of dress that goes with it: black clothes, shoes – be creative.

Adress : Am Wriezener bhf, 10243 Berlin
Opening hours : Fri – Sat : 10pm – 6am / Sun : 24/24 

What we think of Berghain


  • The selection at the entrance
  • The mood once inside
  • The life experience of this symbolic place

What we like the most

“You can’t tell about Berghain, you just have to live it once”.

Loophole Berlin is probably the craziest club in the German capital. It is a former brothel where the parties are really trashy. Electro music, funny experiments, beers galore, in short the atmosphere is amazing.

One thing is certain, when you enter, you will live a really improbable experience. This club is located at Boddinstraße 60.

Adress : Boddinstraße 60, 12053 Berlin

What we think of Loophole


  • Nightclub but also bar, concert hall
  • Friendly staff
  • Cheap drinks

What we like the most

We hesitate between the history of the premises, their eccentricity and the prices on offer…

Sisyphos is not the most famous nightclub in Berlin. However, this club is very liked by the local population, who compare it to a place where a music festival on the beach could happen. The reason?

When you walk through the doors, you’ll arrive at a “beach” with a small lake, a dance floor, a pizzeria and, most improbably, an abandoned bus. The Sisyphos is open from Friday night midnight to Monday 10am.

Adress : Hauptstraße 15, 10317 Berlin
Opening hours : From Friday (midnight) until monday (10am) 

What we think of Sisyphos


  • Lots of little activities
  • A unique place that celebrates the freedom of life
  • An indescribable atmosphere

What we like the most

A place with a special spirit. You have to understand it to appreciate it.

Kater Blau is completely crazy. In some cases, the DJs take turns for four days non-stop. The atmosphere isn’t exactly chic. It’s more like a shock.

If you have the stamina, courage and faith to make it to the middle of Monday, you can be sure to run into some funny characters. The establishment is located at Holzmarktstraße 25.

Adress: Holzmarktstraße 25, 10243 Berlin

What we think of Kater Blau

  • The line is pretty fast
  • Exceptional sound system

What we like the most

The Watergate is a nightclub in Berlin known for its LED lights. The main dance floor is improbable, since it is shaped like a tunnel. It is one of the most modern clubs in the city. The bay windows offer a breathtaking view of the Spree for a colorful evening. Big names in electro music go there. So you can enjoy a great DJ!

Adress : Falckensteinstraße 49, 10997 Berlin

KitKat Club is one of the most iconic nightclubs in Berlin. If you go there, you can be sure to spend a night… A little erotic. The parties are wild, the dance floor, very energetic. A delirious energy which is likely to inspire you and push you to dance, to speak, to have fun as rarely. The entrance is not necessarily as difficult as at the Berghain, but it is quite selective.

Adress : Köpenicker Straße 76, Brückenstraße 1, 10179 Berlin
Opening hours : Sat – Wed : 10pm – 07am / Thu : 10pm – 06am / Fri : 10pm – 08am 

What we think of KitKat Club


  • Sexy, almost erotic atmosphere
  • The pool, very nice
  • Great music

Berlin's nightlife is absolutely exciting

Visiting Berlin also means being curious about its nightlife, which can easily be described as hectic. In fact, no matter which district you visit (Kreuzberg, Friedrichshain and so many others…), you can be sure that you won’t be bored. People are very laid-back, eager to party and have fun, just like you.

As for the rest, it’s worth remembering that Berlin’s nightclubs are mainly techno-oriented. In fact, the city is something of a techno capital. Berghain, Teledisko and so many other places specialize in this theme, and for hours on end, the DJs go on and on.

We hope this list of the 10 best nightclubs in Berlin has helped you organize your stay and, above all, have a great time, right up until the wee hours of the morning. Do you have a recommendation? Would you like to see a particular establishment on this list? We’d love to hear from you.
