Widely considered the “best nightclub in the world,” Berghain draws a singularly eclectic mix: scenesters, misfits, bondage-clad muscle gays, rich kids, Skrillex-haired lesbians, DJs, drag queens, tourists, old, young, whoever.
The line can take hours to get through, and then you might not make it past the doorman. But if you do, don’t be surprised if you’re there till next Monday morning.
Berghain is a bit of a rite of passage for visitors looking for what to do in Berlin.
The sybaritic techno temple is housed in a massive former power plant in the industrial sprawl near Friedrichshain’s Ostbahnhof train station.
