Top 5 Berlin nightlife locations

1. Go to the KulturBrauerei
KulturBrauerei has went a long way from the original purpose it was built for (as brewery, in the 1800s). Today, it represents one of the best places where you can get a taste of the Berlin nightlife, as it hosts a number of clubs that are definitely worth checking out (such as Soda Club).
If you go to the entrance on Schönhauser Allee, you will have the opportunity to discover the old boiler rooms of the brewery. These have been transformed into concert venues, allowing you to check out the hottest bands of the moment. Add to that summer outdoor concerts and you have the perfect recipe for one of the best things to do in Berlin at night time.

2. Pay a visit to the Tacheles
The history of this place is perhaps just as amazing as the number of possibilities for entertainment. Your local guide can tell you tons about it. The old Jewish department store was damaged in the 2nd World War, being then left as a ruin and only transformed into a cultural venue after the fall of the Berlin Wall.
Nowadays, it is a great place to enjoy nightlife in Berlin, with a myriad of options being presented in front of your eyes. There is live music to be enjoyed at Café Zapata or the techno & house club to be savored on the top floor. Bonus, live jam bands in the courtyard.

3. Party in Kreuzberg
In the Berliner neighborhood known as Kreuzberg, you will find one of the most popular clubs of the city, Watergate. If you want to see a classic techno club and enjoy the LED lighting system that has served as inspiration for all the other clubs in the world, you have arrived at the right place.
Watergate is the perfect place to experience Berlin nightlife firsthand, with the Water Floor providing an amazing view directly to the Spree (Berlin’s river). Plus, there is a floating deck terrace, allowing you to enjoy a splendid view of the sunrise. Let your host know that you want to go to this spot and they’ll take you there at exactly the precise time!

4. Enjoy your night on Friedrichshain
After the fall of the Berlin wall, many clubs were formed by the young, alternative crowd in abandoned buildings. If you go to Friedrichshain, the club to check out is Berghain, located in a converted power station. This club just goes to prove that the nightlife in Berlin is still very much about techno music.
Enjoy the house music played in the upstairs Panorama bar and do not hesitate to get your taste of electroacoustic music every Thursday, especially if you are looking for a unique party experience. Your local guide will tell you more about how to fully experience this cool place. Berghain is a place where you can appreciate the freedom of the German people, have fun and listen to some pretty great music at the same time.


5. Dance in Mitte
The central part of Berlin might be home to a number of impressive clubs but nothing compares to Haus des Reisens (former Soviet tower block) and Weekend, the club you will find there. A powerful expression of Berlin nightlife, this club is located on the 12th and 15th floors, plus there is a roof terrace bar that provides some pretty interesting entertainment opportunities, which your host will tell you lots about.
Rave, house and techno music are at home in this club, so you should definitely prepare yourself for a one-of-a-kind going out experience. Plus, given the high altitude, you will be able to enjoy a splendid view of Berlin. Bonus: the famous tech house group, Tiefschwarz, performs here on a regular basis.

Airport Pickup plus City Tour with a Local

My wife and I planned our trip to Germany, and I was in charge of organizing the details of our time in Berlin and Munich.
I think I’m a pretty thoughtful and detailed researcher, and use many sources for info. We also consider ourselves pretty easy going, and not crazy detailed on exactly what we ‘need’ to see, so can go with the flow.
Having never used this site before, the video introductions are a great touch to see the personality of the guides.
Miha met us at the airport, had everything lined up, including a driver with a brand new Audi A8.
We toured around, while learning a ton from Miha and his unbelievable amount of history he retains. It was easy to tell this is a passion, not a job for him.
There were a number of stops where we were able to take pictures, explore the area, and walk though parts of the city to get the local feel.
Not speaking any German was no issue. Besides Miha, we were surprised by how much of Berlin was English speaking, and never had to worry.
He had great recommendations for the rest of our time in Berlin, and we took advantage of many of them, including a super fun night at a local bar where he met us out. We spent hours with other locals and had a great time.
If you are looking for part sights, part history, and part fun, stop now and hit reserve.
We now have a friend in Berlin for life!

Berlin's Secret Districts & Berlin Wall Bike Tour

We were on a 4 hours bike tour with Miha and had in advanced asked him to introduce us to places and districts not frequently visited by tourists. We had a great time. Miha was a very nice guy, informal and with a lot of knowledge about the history of Berlin itself and the places we biked to and through! We highly recommend him as guide and will certainly ask him to join us next time we are in Berlin. Fortunately withlocals has a wide range of tours on their menu😀 great concept! 👍🤩
