Berlin is a world-renowned party capital with a worthy reputation for unique nightlife culture due to an amazing variety of nightclubs, discotheques, trendy cocktail bars, modern lounges, traditional pubs, dingy taverns, dive-bars and street venues. When it comes to Berlin there's an almost endless array for all tastes, from world-famous Techno Djs, Industrial and Gothic raves, Punk gigs, hip-hop, RnB, unrivaled gay parties to fantastic Jazz clubs and everything in between - there really is something for everyone in the atmospheric German capital. The popular districts for nightlife and going out in Berlin among the locals and visitors alike are Prenzlauer Berg, Mitte (particularly Hackescher Markt) & Friedrichshain (Simon Dach Strausse). With a city so vast it can be tricky to navigate throughout many districts in a single night so it's worth doing some research in advance, narrowing your focus down to a particular district or two or by specific venues & clubs to make the most of your nights in Berlin. We recommend asking your lovely local tour guides on The Free Tour of Berlin for recommendations and local hints & tips on what to do by night and check out The Backpacker Pub Crawl which visits some fantastic places in Friedrichshain, including the RAW Gelände complex, with free shots, free beer and discounted drink specials as well as free entry to Matrix, a club institution in Berlin, with local party guides and good people.
