Update: Unfortunately the club Stattbad Wedding has been closed for several years now.
In earlier articles you could already read how unique many clubs in Berlin are. Clubs like Sisyphos and Ritter Butzke cannot be found in other capitals in Europe and make Berlin a special city to party in. Often enough you can visit a new and unique club in Berlin and one club you definitely should visit once in your life is the club Stattbad Wedding.
From swimming pool to club
Located a little north of the center of Berlin, in bezirk Wedding, there used to be a large swimming-complex which was built in 1907. The swimming-pool was known as Stadtbad Wedding and pleased many German swimming-lovers for more than 100 years. “Unfortunately” the swimmin-gpool was closed in the beginning of this century but the building is still in perfect state. Nowadays the complex is used for art exhibitions and as the home for many parties of the club Stattbad Wedding. It is not hard to imagine that a club in a swimming pool has a lot of potential and is a special place to visit.
In May 2009 Stadtbad Wedding was reopened with a minimal name-change of one letter: Stattbad Wedding. As mentioned the main purpose of the reopening was the exhibition of art but lucky enough a clever guy saw the potential of this building for parties and events. Now you are able to visit Stattbad Wedding every weekend and enjoy the great location and talented DJs. Probably you will be flabbergasted the first hour in this club because you realise that you are really entering a swimming pool. If you are lucky you can literally dance inside a swimming pool but even if this part of the Stattbad Wedding is closed you will enjoy the basement, the dressing rooms and the other unique areas of this club.
Stattnacht is the one of the parties which returns to Stattbad Wedding more than once a month. Stattnacht is known in Berlin for it’s talented DJs and the great atmosphere. Talented DJs like George Fitzgerald, Oliver Deutschmann and Acid Pauli are performing in Stattbad Wedding and will make sure the music is great.
