This club is a bad representation of night life and Berlin culture. The attitude on the door is ridiculous and I’ve been turned away once and wont be back. I don’t give a fu** for who they think they are never less how shit the place looks. Everyone is entitle to freedom. Judge people before you even talk to them is discrimination and poor mentality. I’m impress that German people let this kind of shit hole running in this great city. Very bad impression for visitors either club lovers. I vote to close down.

sehr unfreundliche Bedienung, bei der man sich entschuldigen muss, dass man am Koninginendach die Bar aufsucht. Erst wird man unfreundlich darauf hingewiesen, dass Jacken nichts auf den Stühlen verloren haben, später aus heiterem Himmel auf der Straße angeschrien, man möge leiser sein, ob man den Polizeieinsatz nicht mitbekommen hat.... Toller Abend, ein Wirt, der jegliche Sozialkompetenz verloren hat!!! Und obendrein noch schmuddelige Gläser

Letztes Wochenende war ich mit meinem Freund im Gayclub „Die Busche“. Ich bin überwältigt von der Musik, den Leuten und den Angeboten die es dort gibt. Die Busche ist mit Abstand die beste Diskothek für Bisexuelle, die ich jemals besucht habe.

(http://www.diebusche.de) ist der coolste Gay Club den ich jemals besucht habe. Super Coole Leute und der DJ macht wirklich gute Musik. Die Stimmung und die Location sind einwandfrei – und ich als Frau habe auch schnell viele Kontakte zu Frauen geknüpft, was in normalen Clubs eher schwierig ist. Geht hin und schaut es auch an - ich persönlich kann Sie nur weiter empfehlen.

Went to watergate many times, amazing venue, great sound and fantastic djs. Got rejected once with a bunch of my friends - we were very drunk! Never had a problem otherwise... Recommend it highly!

Speechless. My friends and I were reading all the reviews and stressing out about getting in. In the end we chucked on our usual attire (casual and trendy) and went for it. Everyone was wearing coats anyway so it's really got nothing to do with what your wearing EXCEPT...any girls wearing heels, short dresses and too much makeup were turned away. It's not your average club. It's a warehouse. Basically if your wearing heels your not prepared to dance into the next afternoon, which is the experience here. We were asked in English 'how many' replied in Englih and went through. This was a Saturday night about 2am. I would advise big groups to split up intros 2's or 3's and don't draw bad attention to yourselves by being loud or dunk in line. At the end of the day, he gets a vibe or not. It was an amazing place filled with cool people there to enjoy the beats. Give it a go! So worth it. I think I left my soul in there!

The whole reason everybody loves Berghain so much IS the bouncer. He is the absolute best, and puts a mixed but tolerant and open minded crowd together every single clubnight.. He picks people of which he knows will surely have fun at Berghain, beacause not every tourist will like it in there.. So don't feel bad you didn't come in, maybe it is just not for you, and another club will suit you better

well i didn't get in so it gets of course a 1 :) I'm english, love dancing to tunes, which i have done for about 22 years and if the music is good then i dance all night, am 38 but look 28, am a straight, open, fun guy with no attitude. I went at 10 am Sunday on my own, sober, jeans, down jacket and woolly hat, although i did feel slightly nervous as i'd heard about the door policy - not a feeling i really like to begin with - bouncer asked if I spoke german - er... nine :) got the thumb away. I tried again an hour later with a different outfit - scruffier jeans, no jacket, hooded top, different staff, but he asked me a question in german - this time i went with a Ya..? and he gave me the thumb off - seemed like it was probably the non-german speaking thing - maybe not enough germans inside at the time - is german speaking so important in a banging techno club? almost all germans speak some english - good dancing with a good smile for me makes a good clubber. I can rarely understand what an english guy is saying to me over loud sound systems but you can communicate with your face and hands. i guess i'm pretty disappointed, as have come to Berlin pretty much for this and have waited a week for the weekend . I’ve never been turned away from a club before and often I get let in for free for some reason. Worth mentioning that I didn’t have to queue at all at this time – God knows how people would feel if they had been queuing for ages in the cold to get turned away for a mystery reason – a question you need to ask yourself before you consider trying . I spent the day feeling pretty low as dancing in a big warehouse space has me written all over – although I did have a good Sunday all nighter later at Renate where Villalobos was playing. To be fair to locals I was warned against going and suggested alternatives, as the door policy is a bit of an embarrassment for some and it doesn't exactly brighten the rest of your day if you do get turned away. I can understand turning away drunken big groups who will be a closed circus and so not much fun for others. Perhaps we should reciprocate the favor and ban germans from the london clubs too? - only joking -I'm not an asshole :) So long Berghain - enjoy the clique, I thought most people grew out of that stuff once they left the playground. Maybe I’ll come back one day once I hear that things have changed for the better.

I have to say that Berghain is the most amazing club I have ever been to. A couple of weeks ago I was rejected for the first time (I've been maybe 8 times in total) but then last sunday everything was fine again, so it really is random. That's part of the allure though. I'm a girl, Swedish, 21 years and pretty stylish, and they always ask me in English how old I am, so to say they're only looking for mid-30s latexwearing german gay guys is not true, but everyone who's been knows that already :) Sometimes you get in, sometimes you don't but if you enjoy techno you HAVE to go for the insane magical experience that is Berghain.

Don't bother going if you dont look german. I was rejected as soon as they saw that I wasn't white.

Terrible music. Weird crowd. And the bouncers are racists with an IQ below room temperature (Celsius scale). Only bearable if you're drunk and want to have a good laugh about people ...

No doubt it is the coolest place where everything is allowed apart from entry. And I thought Germans are all about unification and integration?!
reviewed by EK from United Kingdom on Sep.03.2012
This place is wild. I went there first six years ago and again last night. Both saturdays. The crowd appears straighter than last time and slightly less adventurous but just as fun-loving and easy going. The sound system is extraordinary, the music superb and the setting is unlike anywhere. With friendly and numerous staff,this place is divine. I'm sure lots of nice and interesting people get rejected, but the key to getting in seems to be dressing down, not up, being a gay or not macho and not being wasted. I went in with a group of five other english speaking gay mates and we were waived through. We thought about saying we were three groups of two but our regular berghain going friend seemed very confident that six relaxed gays all between 30 and 35 would be admitted and he was right. it's hard to tell of course, but I would say that the many people in front of us who were rejected were straight, young or had put a bit too much effort into their look. Those inside seemed very chilled, diverse in age, sexuality and race - all of which makes for a great atmosphere. it is absolutely worth the hassle of the queue. Those mocking it here seem largely to be those who feel they have a right to enter but were refused. Try to look a little less entitled and a little more relaxed and I think you'll have more luck. It's random I'm sure but whatever door policy is being employed, it works. Just look at the interest this place has created on this website alone.

Doubtful ... Surely if they are considered 'regulars' then they would be remembered on that basis rather than a super-power-like 12 month photographic memory... The door staff change shifts so it is possible to get a second stab at entry ...
reviewed by @lok from Austria on Jul.24.2012
for all the people there saying they would leave and come back at different times of day, the bouncer at berghain has a photographic memory which allows him to remember every single person he rejects or lets in. i know people who are considered regulars after a few times and come back a year later and he remembers them

Contrary to what one may think Berlin is like these days.. Berghain is unfortunately one of the only reminding factors of the dark history of Germany...ignorant staff, following elitist policies... it's quite sad and completely illegal what goes on..

Killermann! I can not believe you have paid 426.-€ for a night at a club like this! and the other ones who had commented about this place, don't you think it is to expensive? I guess not! Oh God 426.-€. It is almost equal to an avarage wage of a worker here! but i have to tell that you are a little "tight purse" :) You could have at least 20.-€ paid to the waiter :)
