Salt cathedral Zipaquira

It’s Monday and I just woke up after being at Berghain for 16 hours, my head is not in this constellation, my legs feel like having no energy to even grab some food, it all spins around my room now. I cant’ say I won’t ever do it again, but I need a couple days to get back to myself, the amount of people and vampire-like faces flashing into your eyes every 2 seconds it’s exhausting, even more if you are the type of visual person who needs to watch from head to toe…

Berghain, I love you but you are simply too much for me, I can’t deal with you, we love each other but we know we could only have a toxic relationship. One that will end up with me and not with you. Berghain and it’s little monsters dancing all around to the rythm of the music, waiting for the next guy to check up on them and show them what they are made of.

Don’t forget to get lost in the darkrooms…

Some of the first questions first timers ask themselves before going into Berghain(the best club in Europe) are :

What type of people get into Berghain?

What should I wear if I want to get into Berghain (click here)?

As I’m not an experienced Berghain goer, I can say that I’ve seen some people getting in and some others being left over in the line with their heart broken for not being able to party like monsters in one the most beloved party venues from Berlin. There seems to be even Urban Legends about some of the things you can experience in Berghain, which leads me to say… WTF! It’s just a club, calm down and keep your crap together… Behave like you’re too cool to even get in.

Being gay might help to get into Berghain, being straight can help you too, by this I just want to say the not only gay people get in, but everyone who’s nice and seems to be able to party hard. Always try to play cool, do not show excitement while waiting outside, this will just show your ‘uncoolness’ and will probably get you a NO at the front door.

Some of my accquintances who happen to be in Berghain every now and them decided to tell me some of the NO GOES to get into Berghain and gave also a couple tips that might get you in!

  • Wearing all black might help you getting in.
  • Transparencies/see through clothing can help the door guy by giving you a yes.
  • If drunk or high before getting into the club, make sure it’s not that obvious.
  • Being skinny can get you in.
  • Forget the pastel tones…
  • Forget the dappered outfits.
  • Act like being all relaxed and DO NOT show any excitement.
  • While taking to the doormen, keep your tone down ( you don’t want to be a diva at the entrance of Berghain)

These are some of the tips that can get you into Berghain, however it seems that no one has ever taken the time to show you which outfit you can wear, I think this will give you a real idea of everything I am trying to say.

    i have been in many clubs before, in many countries but this one is definitely the most shity place i’ve ever been.

    First about the line before entrance, i understand that there can be many people in the same time and the bouncers simply can’t let them in at once and have to sell the ticket to every one.
    But in this club the line is a part of this club, bouncers create the line to make the club more desirable, they do their job as slowly as possible to make bigger lines. They search you like you looked like taliban terrorist, they put their hands to your pocket.

    Selection, another funny thing. i got dressed like always, blue pullover, jeans, old ecco shoes. I looked like typical rural guy from poland, without style but relaxed. The bouncers didn’t allowed to get in a guys before us ( they have got style but were arabs ) they allowed to get in me and my girlfriend even when we looked like we wanted to go to redneck pub for a bear.

    how does it looks inside ? interesting, let say that it is a good thing in this place, i like this style.

    music. if i took MDMA it would be nice but with only wodka it is shity music, dumb techno without style.

    toilets. i pied on the floor and it was more clear than before i pied. reason ? they newer clean their toilets, you can shit on the floor and i’m sure that it will be in the same place in next week.

    We left it after maybe 30 minutes.

    i can not understand you people, you are staying in this huge line, you are treated like animals, the bouncers can say that you will no get in because he doesn’t like your nose, ear, heigh or whatever.

    when i saw this line i said to my GF, i will no stay in this line like pig before slotery. finaly we stayed because when you must stay for about hour you can expect that inside there will be at last naked black waiters that will bring you drinks. I ‘ve been in New york, LA, LV, Lwow, Odessa, Crete, Oslo, Stockcholm ……. many others and i have never been so disappointed.

    Make them reach and lose your time, enjoy BERGHAIN

      Hi Rafal! You’re right about some of these facts. However, I never really had to line up for more than 4 minutes, and always had a great time there.
