When it comes to European nightlife, Berlin’s techno scene is second to none, and it has been that way since the late 90s. The techno scene is so vibrant, it has attracted some of the most popular DJs in the world to spin at some of the top clubs in Berlin.
One of the reasons the techno scene in Berlin stands apart from other cities is the fact that the clubs stay open from Friday until Monday without closing, allowing you to truly party through the weekend.
If you’re in Berlin or planning a trip in the near future, we have compiled a list of the best Techno clubs in Berlin to help you find the right place to party the night away.
This is one of the most popular techno clubs in Berlin, and it attracts so many visitors, which means you will have to wait in line before getting inside. If you get past the bouncer, you will be ushered into a club with dark rooms pumping with techno music. Make sure you wear a watch or have a way to tell time because you can easily lose track of time while partying in the club.
With high profile DJs like Ben Klock and Marcel Dettman spinning turntables, expect the club to be packed at all times.
If you’re in the mood for some hard and loud techno music, this is the place to be. If you visit during the summer, expect to see large crowds because the club has a huge outdoors area with a beach and an old hippie van you can either sit inside or on top of.
3. Golden Gate
This club is known as the after-hours spot. After you’ve expanded all your energy dancing the night away, Golden Gate offers you a more relaxed atmosphere. It is a very small club that doesn’t have the big name DJs you will find at the other clubs, but it is still a great place to hang out with friends if you don’t feel like being surrounded by a lot of people.
2. About Blank
The club is the home of the annual Grizzly Nation parties, which is a weekend event that takes place at the end of September. While their house DJs aren’t as popular as some of the DJs in other clubs, they are very talented and will keep you dancing all night.
1. Club Der Visionare
Like Sisyphos, this is an outside club that is always packed, especially during the summer. The club opens at 3 PM and stays open all night and has some of the best house DJs in the city. Most visitors don’t bother going anywhere else once they get to CdV because it is such a fun place to be.
