Discover the exciting history of Berlin club culture
Today's modern club culture began in the 1970s, when the city was still divided by the Berlin Wall. Learn why the Cold War is the reason for Berlin's no-curfew policy, how West Berlin became a nightlife hotspot, and what role the former Berlin Wall and the GDR played in the emergence of techno culture in the 1990s.
Understand how Berlin clubs were built by marginalized communities
Without the influence of the LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC communities, Berlin's clubs would not exist. Hear how trans woman Romy Haag sparked a revolution in nightlife in 1974, how the gay community's SchwuZ fought against homophobia during the AIDS crisis, and how techno DJs from Detroit's black community created music for one after the fall of the Berlin Wall liberated generation delivered.
Find out which celebrities made it into Berlin's clubs and which ones didn't
Berlin's nightclubs are notorious for attracting celebrities like Lady Gaga, David Bowie and Elon Musk, but also for disproving the notion that VIP status automatically grants entry. Find out which celebrities made it past the bouncers, which ones didn't, and which ones are banned for life.
Understand the role of sexuality in Berlin club culture
From the Kit Kat Club to Berghain, Berlin clubs are known for their “anything goes” mentality – and dark rooms are common. On this tour you will not only learn about the consent politics in Berlin clubs, but also why they are safer places for many people to explore unknown facets of their sexuality.
