Berlin isn't known for its natural rock formations, so if you fancy a little scrambling action then you'd best find a climbing hall. Magic Mountain is the biggest in the city, and in fact the whole of Europe, so that even experts amongst you are likely to find that a challenge awaits. After you've worked up a sweat mastering the 50ft walls you can return to 'base-camp' where you will find fitness and sauna facilities, steam bath, spa area, internet café and beer garden - as well as medical assistance if those tendons are playing up again. There are special days for women only, students and also family days... Or why not book your corporate team building event right here?
Watch your wallet! The climbing center is great but it is in a very poor part of town with a high crime rate. While I was there someone's car was broken into. The thieves smashed a window and stole all the valuables. The owner of Magic Mountain says this happens every three months.
