Your Thirsty Guide To Pub Crawls In Berlin
Berlin – famous for its rich history, breath-taking architecture and one darn big wall that stretched over 100 miles. Now that that’s gone – we recommend you spend that 100 miles pub-crawling between some of the best nightlife in Germany.
But be warned… Berlin is not your typical party scene. Make sure you head to some of the more alternative nightlife destinations. This place is full of them, and they’re perfect for an ice-cold beer, a good laugh with some hilarious photo opps – perfect ingredients for your Berlin Pub Crawl.
As you pub crawl through the finest and wildest sites of Berlin, you’ll notice it’s a party capital bonanza with a nightlife that can easily keep you out from Thursday to Sunday without sleep.
Don’t just head to the standard Irish bars you’ll find dotted all around Europe – down a pint in a Gothic Horror Rock Bar, buy a round of shots in the famous Absinthe Bars, and drink wine out of a blood transfusion pack at a pub that replicates a mix between a flea market, zoo and theme park (strange but an absolute must-see).
Now when you head to Berlin, you could head on one of the many organised Berlin pub crawls, but take it from us – Berliners are not entirely fond of groups of young backpackers and students stumbling around in ridiculously loud hordes. However, if you just want to grab your mates and do it at your own pace – these are the best joints to start:
This bar will have your head spinning as soon as you walk through the front door, and it’s not from the good quality and refreshingly cheap beers you’ll be enjoying. Nicknamed the “upside down bar” and the “bar for common people” – this place is a pub that both the locals and tourists thoroughly enjoy.
Stumble around in total confusion as the ceiling mimics the floor with tables and chairs spread across it. If Picasso was still alive – this’d probably be his local.
Das Klo Bar
It’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before and it’ll have you laughing until your crying. A mix between a flea market, a zoo and a theme park, the aim of this bar is to shock, disturb and basically just attack all of your senses. Enjoy an alternative world as creepy toy insects crawl across your table and watch in amazement as bar stools spin and jumping skeletons frighten unsuspecting drinkers.
If that’s not enough entertainment, they’ll also have your tummy turning and churning as you enjoy a wine out of a blood transfusion pack or a beer out of a urine specimen container whilst sitting on the charming seating, which is a curious combination of coffins and toilet seats. In this bar, anything and everything is possible, and ladies – remember not to wear a skirt as surprise gusts of wind also blow up from the floor and could have your mates posting you as the newest Marilyn Munroe on Facebook.
