Tip 4: The perfect indoor activity for everyone: Bouldering in Berlin
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!
Tip 5: Skate Hall Berlin - Keep it rolling on a rainy day
No matter on which wheels you move - whether skateboard, wheelchair or skates - in the skate hall you will find the perfect challenge. There is an area for mini-ramps, a 400 square meter bowl and a street course with plenty of space for free skate sessions. You can improve your skills in workshops and training sessions, for example in the After Work Skate Sessions for adult beginners and returners.

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.

In fact, laser tag was developed by the U.S. military in the 1970s for training and exercise purposes.
