Trends / Spring Break

Berlin’s close-knit techno scene has allowed its club culture to thrive. Berghain is the main draw, but there are plenty of other venues around the city that specialize in techno and a variety of other styles.

This relatively new club is a hidden gem near the Hauptbahnhof train station. Its main sound is house and techno, but be sure to stop by one of its gallery events, Tape Modern, held every few weeks.




Anyone who wants to get the quintessential techno experience heads toward Berghain. Few are able to get in, though. Over the years, the line outside has become a bit of a tourist destination, though its inexplicable door policy keeps the vibe right inside.




Tresor is the reincarnation of Berghain’s predecessor, originally an abandoned department store vault in East Berlin before it became the center of Berlin techno.




Located on the 12th and 13th floors of a former Soviet building, Weekend is a tastefully designed venue that offers a panoramic view of Berlin as well as a rooftop bar in the summer.

It’s not as historic as Tresor, nor as gritty as Berghain, but Watergate has made a name for itself with a carefully curated lineup of shows, drawing techno superstars and introducing new blood as well.



White Trash Fast Food

For American visitors who are homesick, White Trash Fast Food is the perfect club. Staffed by a group of expats from across the Atlantic, White Trash is a rockabilly amalgamation of a burger joint, movie theater, tattoo parlor and go-go bar.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
