Mistakes tourists make
Nightclubs in Berlin come to life between 2 a.m. and 3 a.m. There are no fixed closing hours. Plenty of music, pubs, techno clubs and funky beach bars make Berlin's nightlife enviable. Exploring the nightlife is as much an adventure as a privilege. With so much on offer, Berlin can be bracketed with the hippest cities in the world and only one night cannot do justice to it.
