Ruede Hagelstein in Watergate
Watergate is one of these clubs located at the Spree and a very popular place for both tourist and Berliners. In my opinion the club misses a little bit of the rawness of Berlin but it definitely offers some great features to compensate. There is a balcony directly above the water and when the sun rises it offers the best view ever. Besides that the line-up of Watergate is normally like a great festival: Many large DJs and great labels. If you want to read more about the Watergate, you can read this article.
Ruede Hagelstein was born in Berlin and had his big breakthrough as a DJ in 2005. Nowadays he plays at many German festivals and people visit clubs just to see him play live. His music fits in the Berliner techno scene. If you want to listen to his liveset on Fusion, you just have to click the link and enjoy.
DJs: Ruede Hagelstein
Adres: Falckensteinstraße 49
Entree: 15 Euro

Damiano von Erckert in IPSE
The Ipse is a club which is located close to the station Schlesisches Tor. This part of Berlin is great and also offer plenty of nice bars to have a drink before you party in Berlin. The Ipse is a real open-air-club which is especially popular during the summer months. The club is located directly at the water and looks quite “green” because of the amount of trees. The Ipse is also great to just chillout but that should not be your focus on the 3rd of July: AndHim will be playing on that day.
Damiano von Erckert is a German DJ from the west of Germany (Cologne). His music-taste is very versatile and his sets are full of influences from the 70s, 80s and 90s. When you like melodic music, this DJ will most likely fit you very well. If you want to listen to some of his music before you go and party in Berlin, you can click here.
DJs: Damiano von Erckert
Address: Vor dem Schlesischen Tor 2
Entrance: 10-15 Euro

Marlon Hoffstadt in Wilde Renate
A club in Berlin which is a must-visit for everybody who loves to party, is the Wilde Renate. This club is located close to Ostkreuz and very popular because of its unique style. This club has many different floors and might remind you of an old house with many surprising rooms. The club can be found on walking distance of both station Ostkreuz and Treptower Park. As mentioned, the Wilde Renate is a popular place so it is best to arrive (kind of) sober and not with a very large group.
From the line-up on this night Marlon Hoffstadt would be my personal reason to visit this party in Berlin. Marlon is a reasonably young and talented DJ and already has its own label (called Well-Done). Some of you might know him from the lovely song Once Again but also his livesets are worth your time. A nice example of a liveset can be found here.
DJs: Marlon Hoffstadt
Club: Wilde Renate
Address: Alt Stralau 70
Entrance: 12 Euro

Bloody Mary in Tresor
The Tresor is one of the most unique clubs in Berlin. De club is located in the Köpenicker Straße in Berlin-Mitte and the place is literally located under the ground. The location reminds most visitors of an underground warbunker and the rough techno and excessive use of blacklight make a night in the Tresor a special experience. The Tresor can be reached by foot from station Jannowitzbrücke and the door-policy is not as difficult as many other clubs in Berlin.
In 2005, Bloody Mary moved from her home in France to Berlin. Since that moment, she has been focusing on her music career more intensively and her amount of fans increased after every party she performed at. This is mainly because she knows how to adjust to her crowd and is in constant interaction with her fans. Her music fits to the city of Berlin, if you want to listen to a liveset, you can find one here.
DJs: Bloody Mary
Address: Köpenicker Straße 70
Entrance: 10-12 Euro

Yetti Meißner in Birgit
The club Birgit is located on walking distance from station Schlesisches Tor. Besides great parties during the night you can also find plenty of solid open-airs here. The club has a nice garden and invites talented local DJs to make sure the music is of the highest quality. During the day you can sometimes find design-markets here and currently you can also watch football here. All in all we can conclude that Birgit & Bier is definitely worth a visit. One thing some of you probably like about this Berliner club is that there is one floor where they play 80s, 90s and HipHop.
Yetti Meißner is born in Berlin and one of the DJs of the label of Sisyphos. Many people started being a fan after her great performance on Fusion 2015 with Oliver Koletzkie Back to Back. If you were not at that great festival you can listen to the liveset here.

Address: Schleusenufer 3
Entrance: 12-14 Euro
Music: Techno, House, 80s & 90s

Ben Klock in Berghain
Berghain is probably the most famous club in Berlin. If you are looking for a special experience or party in Berlin, it might be a good idea to visit the Berghain. The only small problem could be that it not easy to get into the Berghain these days. On a regular Saturday-night there is a long line and about half of the people will unfortunately not get in. So if you want to visit the Berghain, make sure you are prepared for a small disappointment.
But if you get into the Berghain you will have a great night. This club has been voted as the best club in the world a couple of times. So I would suggest you make the best of the time you are waiting and if you will not get in you can always try another club in the same area. You do not have much to lose and if you get in, you are in one of the best clubs in world!
The line-up in the Berghain is always very solid. Every weekend you will be able to see a great DJ perform and the Berghain also has some regulars which are quite famous all over the world. One of these DJs who is playing on large festivals but also plays on a monthly basis in the Berghain is Ben Klock. On Soundcloud you can listen to a mixtape of this DJ and find out what you can expect on this night in Berlin.
DJs: Ben Klock
Address: Am Wriezener Bahnhof 70
Entrance: 14 Euro

Kollektiv Ost in Ritter Butzke
The Ritter Butzke is one of the clubs in Berlin which is represented in my party-calendar almost every month. If you like to party in Berlin and you love a solid line-up, you will probably love the DJs which are performing in the Ritter Butzke. The good thing is, that the Ritter Butzke has the same entrance-prices as all the other clubs in Berlin. For 12-14€ you can see these popular DJs in Berlin-Kreuzberg.
Kollektiv Ost consists of two friends named Sandro Schäufler and Marcel Schulz. They are originally from Mecklenburg and have been performing as Kollektiv Ost for a couple of years now. Their music has its own style and it is definitely legitime to visit the Kosmonaut just for these guys. If you want to get an impression of there music you can click this link.

Jiggler in Kater Blau
One of the most popular clubs in Berlin of all times has been the Kater Holzig. If you have read my article about the Kater Holzig, you probably know that it was really a unique place to party in Berlin. But unfortunately the club had to close down and Berlin lost one of his great venues. But lucky enough the people behind the Kater Holzig opened a new place: The Kater Blau. The club is located directly at the Spree and still has this same unique feel to it. It is quite hard to get in, but the place is definitely worth a visit.
Club: Kater Blau

Entrance: 12-14 Euro
Music: Techno, House
