a little more about Berlin stag weekends
To give you some perspective on where you’re headed, as recently as 100 years ago Berlin was considered the world’s third largest municipality, it’s a big old city and invitingly with that comes abundant cultural riches spread over 12 bustling districts. Get past the obvious references to the world wars of the last century and you’ll find an appealingly fashionable giant with a hugely diverse energetic culture, accelerated by the fall of the wall in 1989. Gents your Berlin stag weekends are loaded with potential, simply put, there’s a gargantuan amount to get involved with. There are reportedly over 4000 restaurants, 1000 bars, casinos, dozens and dozens of nightclubs, lapdancing, karaoke, plenty of live music, and of course the world’s best techno electro clubs! That’s before we get onto the daytime action – see the activities tab above. We’re exhausted already!

the entire city seems to be bubbling over into one huge party! - lonely planet
Berlin offers a heady mix of glamour and grit, offering a huge range of things to see and do. The city has developed to form a thriving metropolis, steeped in history and culture and Lonely Planet notes how ‘the entire city seems to be bubbling over into one huge party.’
In Berlin you can combine a morning of paintballing with an afternoon of go karting and beer biking. To top off a perfect day you can take part in an epic brewery tour before getting your jazz shoes on for a top lap dancing club and VIP nightclub entry.
In between the electric nightlife and cultural sights there’s an extensive amount of great bars, restaurants and activities on offer in the city. The prices are excellent, a two course meal in Berlin can cost the same as a starter back home, and the businesses out there have a strong focus on quality. Whether you’re looking to explore the bars and clubs all weekend, or you want to spend a more sober daytime exploring and trying out activities, Berlin has it all.
Berlin’s staged a revolution, been headquartered by fascists, been bombed thoroughly, ripped in half and finally reunited, and it’s this rich history that’s spurred the area into putting so much work and energy into making the city the rich hub of culture and enthusiasm that it is today. As such it’s become a popular place; put simply the city offers everything.
when to go to Berlin
Berlin is a great city to visit any time of the year. In the summer you can sit outside restaurants, enjoy a frosty one and watch busy Berlin life go by. Over New Years the city holds an outstanding event to mark the start of the new year. In autumn, Berlin’s home to The Berlin Marathon as well as the Festival of Lights. In February Berlinale International Film Festival is held and in May the Carnival of Cultures brings more energy to the city. The International Design Festival’s on in June and the Classic Open Air Festival takes place in July. Essentially there’s something on every time of year and it’s almost as much of a ‘city that never sleeps’ as New York.
