They declined me and my friend because we didn't know the name of the DJ. The staff was very rude! Also didn't like the people outside the club who were probably drug dealers

Really cool place to go if you want to experience an authentic Berlin club atmosphere. It’s located right under a bridge and the outdoor area runs out on the water. You can’t take photos inside the club which really adds to the atmosphere and forces...More

Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can
both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central
neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the
1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around
Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s,
rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a
carefree life here. An old hospital even became a
hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today

Not strictly. I’m 20 & they didn’t seem to mind. Other criteria like speaking a little German & the dress code is more important I think.

It’s a techno dance club so no tickets in advance. You either know a DJ and get on the guest list (easiest way to guarantee entry) or you wait in line and hope for the best. Expect NOT to get in if you’re not from Berlin... More
