Klunkerkranich

Club, garden and beach bar: the Klunkerkranich (German for wattled crane) in Neukölln is many things, but first and foremost it is the latest hotspot of the Berlin clubbing scene. Party-goers meet between the flower boxes on the roof terrace of the Neukölln Arcaden shopping centre to listen to the DJ’s tunes and watch the sun setting over the rooftops of Berlin. Spanish-inspired fusion cuisine is served in the restaurant.
