Nightlife - So far, you have seen that Berlin
has a lot to offer in terms of daytime activities
and early evening pursuits. But the great thing about
Berlin is that it doesn’t fall asleep at nighttime.
In fact, Berlin lives up to its title of the ‘city
that never stands still’, and it kicks up a
notch when darkness falls.
Berlin has a multitude of bars,
pubs, nightclubs, and late night restaurants for the
night owl to peruse. Whether you like hip-hop or rave,
chic surroundings or cosy rooms, Berlin has it all
and more. Just taking a walk down one of Berlin’s
many lively streets will provide you with more options
than you can shake a bit of the Berlin Wall at.
Berlin Nightlife is also known for
its gay and lesbian nightlife as well. Throughout
the city there are liberal helpings of bars and clubs
that cater to all types of individuals and tastes.
It doesn’t take long to find what you are looking
for in this progressive and interesting city.
The younger generation will most likely feel at home
at the Pariser Straße part of town, and The
Savigny-Platz in Charlottenburg has loads
