Berghain / panorama bar: "you have to see to believe" Berlin Nightlife Tip by happyhippy

Berlin Nightlife: 289 reviews and 289 photos


If you like electronic music then this is the place for you.
Take a taxi, and you will be greeted by what looks like a prison.

If your lucky enough to be let in, then you will be struck by the sheer size of the venue and the crisp booming sound coming from the function one sound system.

Berghain is split into two "clubs"
Berghain which is plays a special breed of techno. Expect muscled gay men dancing to fast hard techno.
Panorama Bar which plays tech house/techno, generally more groovy.

Its a really good experience, but stay away from the darkrooms unless you want some man on man fun.
Generally best to arrive 4am sunday, and leave midday : )

Dress Code: Probably the worlds strictest door policy, it can be random but generally:
On fridays - much stricter and very selective. more likely to get in if you look like a gay man.

If you dress too loud/smart you will definitely not get in.
Basically you have to look like you are there to party, they don't want tourists.

Keep your mouth shut if your an American, learn how to say "Ich bin allein"
Wear gay fetish clothing ; )
