Located at the Metzer Straße 11, it is just a 5 minutes walk from our hostel.

great cozy place, it´s mainly students you will find here. getting together to drink really
great wine and philosophize in a relaxed livingroom-feel atmosphere.
the concept of the weinerei is quite unique. You ´buy´ a glass, for one euro, and then you

Don´t go here to late, when the wine is out, its over and out!!

What is to be expected? There will be a huge stage at the Brandenburg gate On this stage some really cool artists from all over Germany will perform!

But there are more parties going on!For instance there are parties in various clubs in Berlin, tonight, on the second of October!

Your want to party tonight, then go to the Ankerklause! To celebrate the unification DJ Olli Goolightly will play Indie, Trash, Club-Pop, 80s, Wild style. You can also go to Ankerklause for its fantastic burgers!!

Also the Ballhaus Berlin dedicates tonights night to celebrate into the 3rd of October. DJ Chris will make sure everybody is gonna dance!

On the actual day of the unification, the 3rd of October,there will be a big party at Brandenburg Gate. A big stage in front of the BrandenBurg Gate will host various of artist, and the entire Strasse der 17.Juni will be in party mode.

Also there are activities especially for families with kids, like pony-riding. There is a big Ferris Wheel too, a great opportunity to have a view over Berlin!
