Best Nightlife spots in Germany

Most major German cities have a nightlife of some description. It also depends a little on what you’re looking for. If it’s techno-playing clubs where you can dance till dawn then the major places of interest have to be the likes of Berlin, Munich, Hamburg and Frankfurt etc. If you’re interested in something more sedate then most cities and towns have restaurant areas where you can enjoy a good meal and have a few drinks in a local pub.

Because the major cities are so diverse you can enjoy a cultural kaleidoscope of offerings, an evening sampling drinks with strange names and colours at a cocktail bar or enjoying live music at an underground club to an evening of classical music in a baroque theatre. For those that want more — why not try all of the above?

Spring’s a great time to visit for the nightlife, as you’re no longer hampered by winter’s freezing temperatures and the beer garden season is beginning to come to life — with longer nights, and festivals are just around the corner.

The greatest party areas and districts in Germany

  • Hackesche Höfe and Oranienburger Straße (Berlin): Located in Mitte in central Berlin these streets are densely packed with clubs, restaurants and bars. You can leave one club and walk straight out into another. The feel of an open air party and top tourist spot in Berlin.
  • Kreuzkölln (Berlin): You’d expect exciting nightlife around the Kreuzberg art scene and it’s called Kreuzkölln (signifying it lies between Kreuzberg and Neukölln). Café culture by day and plenty of bars and pubs by night. Quentin Tarantino allegedly spent time partying here during the filming of “Inglorious Basterds”
  • Reeperbahn (Hamburg): Famous as Hamburg’s nightlife mile and also for Europe’s largest red light district, Reeperbahn is one of the most visited tourist spots in Hamburg. You’ll discover many, many bars, restaurants, theatres, and clubs; on the seedier side there are sex shops, sex museums, erotic theatres, and strip clubs.
  • Schwabing (Munich): There are other night life areas in districts close to the city with Schwabing being the main one. You’ll find swankier hipper clubs, bars and restaurants here, and the atmosphere can be a bit more relaxed, if pricier.
  • Kunstpark Ost (Munich): Adjacent to the Munich East station this is a former industrial area and is reputed to have one of the highest concentrations of clubs in Europe. It features a massive complex divided into two — Kultfabrik for the noisier, younger crowd and Optimolwerke for the more refined party goer.
  • Innenstadt and Alt-Sachsenhausen (Frankfurt): The inner-city (Innenstadt) of Frankfurt has a large number of upmarket bars, clubs and restaurants and also (due to the high student population) a good selection of younger, cheaper nightspots. But if you want to try something a bit more Frankfurt, then visit Sachsenhausen which has a lot of traditional type bars where you can sit and try the local cider-like drink “ebbelwoi.”

Top 5 trendiest clubs and bars in Germany

  • Milla (Berlin): Think dark 80s, Berlin club and you have Milla. It’s one of the best venues in Munich for underground music and features anything from unknown garage to jazz bands. Decked with vintage décor and furniture that looks like it came from a flea market (and it probably did).
  • Hofbräuhaus (Munich): Even if you’re not a big beer drinker a visit to this Munich institution is a must. Beer halls are a Munich tradition and you’ll find it a unique experience. Quality beer served by Bavarian lasses in Dirndls!

  • Dauth Schneider (Frankfurt): A visit to Frankfurt isn’t complete without trying the signature drink "Ebbelwoi"; a light alcoholic apple cider. You can find it in many places, but this quaint 150 year old tavern is set in a cobble-stoned street.
  • Watergate (Berlin): This well-known club in Kreuzberg is split over two levels and overlooks the river Spree. Always packed with techno fans.
  • Gasteig Kulturzentrum (Munich): The Richard Wagner influence is felt widely in the Munich classical music scene. The city has three world class symphony orchestras.
