Inside the Berghain nightclub in Berlin

Berlin stag dos aren’t all about rowdy beer halls and gritty underground clubs. The city’s vivid history and current status as one of the most creative cities in Europe also make it a must-visit for stags after a little culture.

The German capital sits near the country’s northeast border - and it’s no lie when we say it is immense! In fact, it’s thought to be nine times the size of Paris! Split into two after WWII (but later reunited in 1989), Berlin is bursting with key post-war heritage spots like Checkpoint Charlie and the Holocaust Memorial. You could also explore dark and dingy WWII bunkers, trail the remains of the Berlin Wall or eat/drink your way around the unique neighbourhoods it once divided.

When it comes to epic stag activities in Berlin, you won’t be left disappointed. As well as your classic stags’ night out (only with currywurst instead of a kebab at the end), you’ll have your pick of ‘only in Berlin’ adventures - think beer festivals, tours of landmarks with dark pasts and cruising around the city in a cool 1950s Trabant.

Want to know the best thing about our Berlin stag weekends? We’ll be there every step of the way armed with our expert knowledge of this slightly dysfunctional yet insanely sexy city. Simply hit us up on WhatsApp or Messenger to get started.

Neighbourhoods not to be missed

Friedrichshain

Berlin’s answer to Camden, but with Soviet-era buildings housing cafes, clubs and art venues. Friedrichshain was formerly part of Eastern Berlin and it’s packed with remnants from the period, from the graffitied East Side Gallery to Karl-Marx-Allee that’s lined with Stalinist structures. The district is also the location of some of Berlin’s best nightlife spots, including highly exclusive Berghain - located in a disused power plant - and underground techno hotspot Tresor.

Kreuzberg

Gritty Kreuzberg is one of the most multicultural and laid-back areas of Berlin thanks to its large Turkish community and fun-loving student population. It’s a great place to put on your radar if the stags are caffeine addicts thanks to an incredible range of cafes and coffee roasters. The diverse district also has its fair share of cool street art, plus some of the city’s best museums like the Jewish Museum Berlin.

Mitte

If you only go to one neighbourhood on a stag do in Berlin, make it Mitte. It’s the city’s oldest and most central districts and where you’ll find numerous major landmarks such as the Brandenburg Gate and Tiergarten (a great spot for snoozing off your hangover in the sun).

Alexanderplatz

Found in the heart of Berlin’s Mitte district, Alexanderplatz is the city’s main square and at the heart of its public transport system. It’s named after Alexander I of Russia (a Tsar in the early 1800s) and is famous for its underground bunkers used during WWII. Nowadays, it’s the busiest spot in the city and home of Berlin’s iconic TV Tower (or Fersehturm in the local lingo).

 

Stag accommodation in Berlin

 

After somewhere cheap as chips to rest your heads before hitting the clubs again? Or maybe you are lads in need of some pampering at a five-star hotel? There’s plenty of accommodation types spread across some of Berlin’s best neighbourhoods, plus endless self-catering picks for stags after extra space to stretch out.

Here’s just a glimpse at some of our favourite accommodation options for stag weekends in Berlin:

What’s more, Motel One is surrounded by ace drinking and eating venues as well as being a short stroll from Tiergarten and its excellent beer gardens.

The outside of the Berghain night in the daytime

A large group of people in lederhosen at Oktoberfest

Graffiti of two men on the Berlin Wall
