You don't need ropes or hooks for bouldering. You can usually borrow shoes in the halls - and in a pinch, you can even start out with clean indoor shoes. Because bouldering is only a few meters above the ground - which is softly padded, of course - this sport is also ideal for beginners. But beware: It is still strenuous to shimmy up and along the walls. There are usually different routes with different levels of difficulty. A sense of achievement is guaranteed!

One of the most spectacular indoor settings for laser tag in Berlin is the underground bunker at Anhalter Bahnhof. The approximately 2500sqm playing area was actually once an air raid shelter. Now it is a modern equipped facility with numerous game variations, from lasertag to escape games. In fact, laser tag was developed by the U.S. military in the 1970s for training and exercise purposes. The gaming industry picked up the concept and in 1984 the first laser tag arena opened in Dallas. In the meantime, several indoor arenas have also been established in Berlin. In most you can play as a group, but you can also book in as an individual.

Where:

  • Underground Lasergame, Stresemannstraße 95Y, Kreuzberg
  • LaserTec Berlin, An der Industriebahn 2, Weißensee
  • Lasergame Berlin, Nordhauser Straße 26, Charlottenburg
  • DockX, Ordensmeisterstraße 1-3, Tempelhof

  • 3D Black Light Mini Golf, direkt am Tempelhofer Hafen, Ordensmeisterstraße 1-3, Tempelhof
