These are the seven under the radar clubs in Berlin that everybody should visit once
Berlin, without a doubt, deserves its reputation as the best city for clubbing in all of Europe. Whether you’re a fan of techno, house, or even trance, it’s possible to find an EDM night that’s right for you seven nights a week, 52 weeks a year.
With its notoriously strict door policy and long queue, Berghain – the best-known club in Berlin – can be a nightmare for tourists to get into. We recommend that visitors to the German capital choose a venue slightly off the beaten track.
As always, don’t come in too large a group, don’t act drunk and try to speak a little German and you should be okay getting in…
1. Sisyphos Nightclub
If you’re a fan of techno or tech-house, then this is the club for you. With its labyrinthine outdoor area littered with abandoned cars, the club has some of the most refreshing visuals at the Berlin club scene has to offer.
Sisyphos has a reputation for being more tourist-friendly than other large venues, and it runs non-stop from Friday through to Monday. If you’re willing to go in the afternoon or morning, you’re likely to get in without queuing. Although line-ups are rarely ever announced in advance, you can find out more information through the venue’s website.
2. Anomalie Art Club
While you’ll likely come to this venue for the techno, be prepared to be blown away by the art on display in the club’s many nooks and crevices, as well as sculptures beside the DJ booth itself. There’s a reason it’s known locally as ‘The Dream Factory’.
If you want to get some space to dance, then this is the place for you as it rarely gets too packed. More info is available on the club’s Facebook page.
