Berlin's clubs are ready for to dance into the summer: As of June 18, dancing is allowed again; although under restrictions and only outdoors, Berlin's clubs have a lot more in store this summer in addition to cool beats and hot rhythms. Many clubs have developed new creative concepts, which - like the immersive art project "Overmorrow" by Wilde Renate - already provided a most welcome change during the peak of the pandemic. Look forward to exciting performances, art and culture - and of course to dancing under the stars.

Tip: You also might want to check out Ritter Butzke: There are readings and concerts in the Kulturgarten and sometimes also in the Garden of the Night! And at Strandbad Plötzensee you may dance until 10 pm.

A prerequisite for dancing is a negative COVID19 test. Please remember to get tested! To download the Luca App can't hurt either. We wish you lots of fun!

Tip 1: Berghain Panorama Garten
