Berlin Berlin for Music-Lovers

The audio-obsessed German capital is a paradise for everyone from jazz aficionados to techno snobs.

From David Bowie to Kraftwerk to the swinging sounds of jazz in the Weimar Republic, the history of Berlin is deeply rooted in a range of musical traditions. Here’s where to get your groove on in the Hauptstadt today.

Best Place to Shop for Vinyl

Vinyl may be enjoying something of a resurgence around the globe, but few cities are as fiercely devoted to the medium as Berlin. Many of the city’s most revered DJs eschew the use of traktor — or, God forbid, laptops — in favour of a case of well-loved records. Audiophiles hoping to pick up everything from electronic music to classical will find what they’re looking for at Space Hall, a sprawling treasure trove with sounds to suit all tastes and generations.

Space Hall
Best Spot for Live Piano

If you’re seeking the perfect place to while away that long, late-summer evening, search no further. For more than two decades, this cosy bar has been charming guests with nightly live piano performances accompanied by classic cocktails and single-malt whiskeys. There’s a selection of cheeses and small nibbles to complement the well-curated wine list. In keeping with the name, hand-painted replicas of some of the Dutch artist’s most famous works decorate the crimson walls.

Best Place to Hear Jazz

Berlin may be all but synonymous with techno, but that doesn’t mean that locals lack an appreciation for other sorts of music. Located on Kantstraße, this buzzy club has hosted a mix of local and international jazz musicians since 1975. Check the lineup to see which crooner will be rocking the stage on a particular evening or simply pop by on a Wednesday for a free jam session.

Best Place to Catch Live Bands

Icons from David Bowie to Iggy Pop have graced the stage at this legendary Kreuzberg punk venue. While the range of musical styles showcased here has grown more diverse since SO36 first opened in the 1970s, the loyal clientele and the vibe have remained much the same. It’s still easily one of the best places in town to catch a live show.

Europe’s second largest department store KaDeWe has been Berlin’s buzzing centre since 1907. It’s a city within the city to have a walk, discover new trends, do some shopping or enjoy lunch... and what a lunch!
The biggest food hall You don’t want to miss the treat on the sixth and seventh floors at KaDeWe: the Feinschmeckeretage. With over 1,000 places, it’s the biggest restaurant in the city and, better yet, you’ll find the best-stocked delicatessen in Europe and the second largest in the world.
