Berlin is internationally known for its unique club scene. Especially in summer, it’s not just in musty basements or sweaty halls that you can party. Warm summer nights invite you to dance in one or the other open-air club in Berlin. Here you can dance all night long under the open sky and watch the Berlin sunrise from the dance floor. We show you which open air club is the best place to do this.
Party all night – the 10 best open air clubs in Berlin
In Berlin’s summer, the famous Friday night is best enjoyed in one of the many open air clubs. They have a lot to offer and each open air club has its own character. We have put together a list of our favourites to help you find the best open air venue in Berlin.
Klunkerkranich rooftop open air club
At Klunkerkranich you can turn night into day above the rooftops of Berlin. The city’s slowest lift takes you to parking deck 6 of the Neukölln-Arkaden, where a whole new world opens up. The small wooden gardens create a unique ambience where you can sit, chill and dance.
Whether it’s for concerts, dancing the night away or just a chilled-out coffee, the Klunkerkranich offers the perfect location for a successful evening. The beautiful panoramic view allows a sweeping view over the trendy districts of Neukölln and Kreuzberg all the way to the Rotes Rathaus (Red City Hall) and the Fernsehturm (TV Tower).
Address: Karl-Marx-Straße 66, 12043 Berlin
Opening hours: Mon – Wed: from 18.00, Thu – Sun: from 16.00
Birgit and Bier – beer garden meets open air club
At Birgit und Bier you will find a unique mixture of beer garden and club. It’s not for nothing that the Birgit und Bier crew calls their location the “club among beer gardens”. Here you can party all night long to a casual mix of 80s, hip-hop, techno and electro music, or just relax and enjoy the special charm of the cosy beer garden atmosphere.
The small appetite in between can be satisfied with rustic food from the grill and the drinks menu leaves hardly anything to be desired. Birgit und Bier at Schleusenufer 3 in Kreuzberg is one of those locations where an evening can not only begin, but also end with the first rays of sunshine.
Address: Schleusenufer 3, 10997 Berlin
Opening hours: Sun – Wed: 14.00 – 03.00, Thu: 14.00 – 04.00, Fri – Sat: 14.00 – 10.00
Sisyphos is probably one of the best-known tips for an open-air club in Berlin. Once you’ve made it inside, you’ll find a veritable wonderland that invites you to party, dance and chill. The sand underfoot, colourful lampshades and flags, all kinds of lovingly designed wooden figures as well as converted cars, small huts to relax in and practical viewing platforms make the area a real alternative for festivals.
Sisyphos is one of the clubs in the city where you can actually party all weekend long. In the old industrial ruin, a former dog biscuit factory, you’ll find the perfect mix of beach party, techno club and chilled-out outdoor area.
Address: Hauptstraße 15, 10317 Berlin
Opening hours: Fri 10pm to Mon 8am, special opening hours possible during the week for concerts.
Badeschiff and Arena Club
You want to enjoy a refreshing dip in the pool during the day on a hot summer day and party to electro beats until the early hours of the morning? That’s possible at the Arena Club in Treptow. The popular beach bar with its pool floating on the Spree attracts countless party-goers, especially in summer.
While you relax in the pool and enjoy the spectacular view of the TV tower and the famous Oberbaumbrücke, in the evening the music is turned up and you can dance under the night sky. In addition to a rich selection of drinks, freshly prepared barbecue is also offered for refreshment. During the day, open-air yoga classes and massages are also held here.
Address: Eichenstraße 4, 12435 Berlin
Badeschiff: Mon – Sun: 12.30 – 14.30 & 15.00 – 17.00, prior booking of tickets for a time slot required.
Club: depending on programme
Club der Visionäre
Even from a distance, the hustle and bustle at the Club der Visionäre on the banks of the Flutgraben makes you want more. While the afternoons are more relaxed under the sun and you can dangle your legs in the water from the wooden jetty, the number of visitors increases towards the evening and the music gets louder and louder.
Under colourful fairy lights and large silver keys, you can party and dance in the fresh air. Not far from the Arena Treptow, you can turn night into day to lush electro and minimal beats.
Address: Am Flutgraben 1, 12435 Berlin
Opening hours: Mon – Fri: from 14.00, Sat & Sun from 12.00
Yaam – a different kind of open air club
At Yaam you can expect a completely different programme than in the many electro clubs in Berlin. The Young African Art Market is more than just an open-air club. The non-profit association for youth culture, integration and multicultural encounters runs a beach bar on the grounds opposite Ostbahnhof in Friedrichshain, where you can party until late into the night.
Concerts by up-and-coming bands and musicians from the international reggae, dancehall as well as black music, afrobeat and soul scenes are regularly held here. In addition, many cultural and social leisure activities are offered on the grounds during the day. Among them are graffiti and street art as well as drumming and percussion workshops.
Address: An der Schillingbrücke 3, 10243 Berlin
Opening hours: Sun – Thu: 13.00 – 00.00, Fri & Sat: 13.00 – 02.00
Holzmarkt 25 – open air club right at the Spree
Holzmarkt 25, directly on the banks of the Spree, is much more than just an open-air club. The cooperative association sees itself as the creator of its own neighbourhood directly on the water. On the grounds of the urban village, there is a marketplace where open-air parties are regularly held, a daycare centre and a children’s playground, as well as a colourful selection of culinary delights, handicrafts, art and culture.
According to the operators, Holzmarkt 25 is a place of exchange, debate, peace and fun. The focus is on creative and communal togetherness, so that Holzmarkt 25 is also constantly changing and will probably never really be finished.
Address: Holzmarktstraße 25, 10243 Berlin
Opening hours: basically always open
Bar opening hours:
Fri: 16.00 – 24.00
Sat: 13.00 – 24.00
Sun: 13 – 22.00
Hoppetosse – open air club on a boat
At first glance, the rusty hull of the Hoppetosse may not really look trustworthy. And yet, very special open airs are celebrated here on the old ship directly on the Spree. Once on the deck of the ship, the dilapidated appearance is quickly forgotten and you can party and dance until the early hours of the morning.
In bad weather, the ship also offers a small dance floor below deck. The Hoppetosse thus does not fit into any of the typical categories of open-air clubs and enchants visitors with its very own charm.
Address: Eichenstraße 4, 12435 Berlin
Opening hours: depending on the programme
A lively club and cultural scene has now developed on the site of the former Reichsbahn repair works (RAW site for short) in the Friedrichshain district. A special highlight is the Haubentaucher. Within the historic walls, the 240 square metre Haubentaucher is not the largest swimming pool in Berlin, but for some it is certainly one of the most beautiful.
Around it, numerous sunbeds and deckchairs, an urban sundeck, Mediterranean plants and the garden lounge covered with wild vines create a unique experience. Here you can swim, party or just relax in the sun while listening to relaxing music. Club nights and events are held regularly in the adjacent event hall. From the Warschauer Straße S-Bahn station, it’s only a few minutes’ walk until you find yourself in a cool beach club in the middle of Friedrichshain.
Address: Revaler Straße 99, 10245 Berlin
Opening hours: Saturday 22.00 – 05.00
Not a classic club, but still one of the best addresses for enjoying open-air culture in Berlin is Mauerpark in Prenzlauer Berg. On the large park grounds you can barbecue with friends, chill out and enjoy the sun. Regular events attract numerous visitors to the park. The karaoke party held every Sunday in the Mauerpark amphitheatre is particularly popular.
Here, anyone who wants to may present their singing talent in front of the audience. Those who prefer a quieter atmosphere can relax in the beer garden of the Mauerseglers at the entrance to the park. By the way: your bed is nearby. From Eastseven Hostel Berlin it’s only a good 15-minute walk to Mauerpark.
Address: Gleimstraße 55, 10437 Berlin
Opening hours: always open, Sundays from approx. 14.00 Karaoke
