Berlin’s nightlife is as legendary as its currywurst and beer, and it’s just not right to visit without trying all three.

Once you’ve got your photo by the Brandenburg Gate and learnt all about the fall of the Berlin Wall, it’s time to put on your dancing shoes and see what the city’s nightlife has to offer.

The capital of Germany’s also the capital of techno music, with some of the biggest clubs in the world attracting top DJs. There’s also a thriving beer garden scene, where you can sit and enjoy a tipple from a local brewery. If you’re going in summer, head to a park with a picnic and spend the day relaxing in the sun.
