After an afternoon of shopping or several days of sightseeing you might be up for a night with some excitement. One of the things you could consider doing with your friends or family is visiting one of the many casino’s in Berlin. There are smaller casino’s all over town but as a real event we would recommend visiting the bigger ones at touristic hotspots. Especially the casino’s at Potsdamer Platz and Alexanderplatz are worth a visit.

Spielbank at Potsdamer Platz

The most famous casino in Berlin is located at Potsdamer Platz. This casino was opened in the year 2000 and has been in the top of the most successful casino’s in Germany ever since. The Spielbank Potsdamer Platz has three different floors and many different opportunities for anybody who likes to gamble. You can choose to play roulette, blackjack, poker and there are many different slot-machines as well. The entrance-fee at this casino is 2,50€ (wardrobe inclusive). If you want to visit an impressive casino, be sure to visit the Spielbank Potsdamer Platz.

Casino Berlin – TV-Tower

A second casino in Berlin which is worth a visit, is the casino located directly under the Fernsehturm. This casino is a bit smaller than the Spielbank at Potsdamer Platz but the atmosphere is nice and they offer the same kind of machines and games. This casino has two floors and the upper floor is mainly for playing at the tables (blackjack, poker, roulette). Downstairs you can find all sorts of slot-machines. The entrance is just 1€ and this casino offers cool theme-nights once in a while too. In the winter-months you can easily combine a visit to this place with the Christmas-markets at Alexanderplatz.

Smaller Casino’s

Besides the two larger casino’s above, you can also decide to visit one of the many smaller casino’s in Berlin. In Kreuzberg, Friedrichshain and Neukölln you can find many small private casino’s. Some of them look a bit shabby but others are actually pretty cool. Often you will get free drinks if you gamble enough and the entrance is for free most of the time. Examples of smaller casino’s can best be found on the internet using Google.

Summary

As you can read above, Berlin has a lot to offer for tourists who like to gamble once in a while. You have the possibility to visit some of the smaller casino’s around the corner of your hotel or you can decide to combine the bigger casino’s at Potsdamer Platz and Alexanderplatz with a nice day of touristic attractions. Make sure you do not spend too much time in there, there are lots of other cool things to do in Berlin after all.

  1. Job,

    Are all blackjack games in Berlin dealt from the continuous shuffle machines, or are some dealt from “shoes”?

    If from shoes, at which casinos?

    • Hi Frank,

      I am not that much of an expert and have not been checking the dealing machines at the casinos in Berlin.

      So unfortunately I cannot answer you question.

      Best wishes!

      Hi Yumie, I am not completely sure if I understand your question but you should defenitely take your ID if you visit a casino. Have a good time in berlin!
