Berghain

That the British DJ Mag pronounced it the best techno club in the world in 2009 accounts for only part of the legend; the drugs, "darkrooms," and alleged orgies account for the rest. The truth is that the Berghain, an abandoned Soviet power station located behind the Ostbahnhof, is as infamous as it is banal.

Ultimately, its greatest asset lies in the fact that it can never be copied. A club like this could exist only in Berlin. For this reason, revelers flock from all over the world to the dusty wastelands of Friedrichshain and try their luck in front of the derelict factory building. It might take a while, but if you wait for your moment, you should get in. Berlin's most enduring club keeps the party going from midnight Saturday to Monday morning. Be warned: planning your visit for early Sunday morning will not make your waiting time in line much shorter.

Once you do get inside, you are confronted with a gloomy concrete complex of bars and darkrooms. Newbies gasp at the sight of the 59-foot-high club space outfitted with monstrous boxes. A total of 20 Berlin resident DJs here provide legendary and sweaty dance music of the hard style. The panoramic bar on the top floor is especially praised for its sound -- up there, techno doesn’t reign supreme, house does. In short, the motto here is: everything is allowed except for photography. The legend must be preserved.

    Where should I begin? buff! Last year I was in Berlin with my husband and another couple and we visited Berghain. My friend recommended not to talk in the door way and to stay there with a face like thinking "this guy stinks and I don't wanna get in". I didn't understand why but we got in because it was early and there was no line. The place is great and I really liked it.
