No city in the world is hotter than Berlin right now. History, hedonism, grit and glamour are four words that can be used to describe Germany’s vibrant capital. Amazing nightlife, great local beer and some of the most famous landmarks on the continent make Berlin the ideal place to hold a stag party. We promise to be just as efficient as our German friends in arranging you a great one!
Berlin is a city where East meets West in a wild cross-culture of just about everything: old, new, war-torn, rebuilt, past, present, future. The German capital is home to 3.5 million people and a further 11.5 million tourists visit each year. Considering it is one of the most popular and exciting cities in Europe, a Berlin stag do is surprisingly cheap and the average price of a pint of beer is as low as €2.80.
Berlin is rich in history and famous landmarks that symbolise its remarkable past can be found throughout the city. Berlin’s most famous icon, the Brandenburg Gate is built on the site of a former city gate and marks the entry to Unter den Linden, the renowned boulevard of linden trees, which formerly led directly to the city palace. The city was divided for nearly thirty years following the Second World War and the subsequent decades after the fall of the Berlin Wall have seen it flourish into a buzzing metropolis, rich in artistic and cultural experimentation.
Getting to the German capital is cheap and effortless. The 2 hour flight from London Gatwick can be booked for as little as £64 with Easyjet in the summer months. Ryanair offer similar prices but depart from Stansted. There are flights from all over the UK, including regional airports such as Birmingham and Nottingham. So what are you waiting for? Berlin’s calling!!
Weather-wise, Berlin is likely to be a similar to than any city southern in England during the Summer months – with highs of 23 degrees in July and August. However the average temperature is higher that London, so you should expect more consistent good weather.
If New York is the city that never sleeps, then Berlin is its estranged, party addicted, cool, European insomniac cousin who is literally up raving and misbehaving all night! The party scene here really does cater for all budgets, tastes and age groups and it’s not just at the weekend where the party pumps, it’s practically 24/7. So for you party animals, a Berlin stag do is an absolute must!
The birthplace of techno, Berlin is currently the clubbing capital of the world. Notorious clubbing meccas such as Watergate, Tresor and Berghain are situated in the Friedrichshain area and housed in dark and derelict industrial factories. These superclubs attract world class DJs every week, however be warned that they are not for the faint-hearted and you are best advised to split up into smaller groups in order to gain entry.
However, if you want to start off small on your stag party in Berlin there are other more low key venues. Check out the nightclubs and bars in the same area and in nearby Potsdamer Platz. If you feel spoilt for choice, or if you want insider knowledge on the best nightspots, then book a Bar Crawl & Nightclub Entry with us. We’ll make sure you avoid any dives with expensive drinks, and take you to the places where the party is really happening!
But what about the sexy ladies of Berlin? Well we’ve got that covered too: you can combine a Bar Crawl with strip club entry. Berlin was famous as a pre-war city of sin, but it has kept up that reputation in modern times with hundreds of a strip clubs and erotic venues. So you’d be mad not to take advantage on your lads weekend away. But don’t end up in a dodgy strip joint – let us take you to a safe, fun and welcoming venue where you won’t be ripped off!
There’s so much insane fun activities you can do on your Berlin stag weekend. We have all the best stag do activities from classics such as go-karting to shooting WW2 style guns. UK gun laws being as strict as they are, you’ll never get to try shooting these old school weapons – that’s why booking a session at the gun range is a must on your stag weekend. You’ll get to find out whether you are a natural shot, and you’ll get to experience the full force of ‘antique’ weapons such as the PPsH, a soviet sub-machine gun used in the Second World War.
Berlin also has a lot of insane such as House Running. If you like the idea of abseiling off a tall building in the middle of the Berlin it – i.e. if you’re a bit loco – then you’ll enjoy this! Likewise if your more of an adrenaline-charged kind of chap then hop aboard the Antonov AN-2 and fly high above the city, and feel like your in a war movie.
Remember that opening scene with the snakes and the sea plane in the first Indiana Jones movie? Well now you can recreate it by booking our Waterplane Flight activity. See Berlin from the best angle (aka a bird’s eye view). You’ll be taking off from the Spree River and flying across the city, and in true luxury style there’ll even be a glass of champagne for each of you.
A Berlin Stag Do is the ideal opportunity to get in touch with your wild side, and relive your boyhood fascination with guns, cars and flying machines!
Love fast cars and flying machines? Berlin Stag Weekend is the thing for you! If you want a World War 2, Cold War themed lads weekend then this city has plenty to offer. On our Berlin Tank Driving activity you can indulge in all your boyhood war hero fantasies. You and the lads will get a chance to both ride in and drive a military vehicle. This include both Russian and German fighting vehicles. If you don’t trust your mates driving skills then you can hop in a vehicle with a pro, who’ll seriously put the pedal to the medal. This activity is highly recommended, and the photo opportunities will be awesome!
How about combining a bit of an adrenaline-rush driving experience with some site seeing? Book our Hot Rod Tour on your Stag Do in Berlin and we can make it happen for you. You’ll drive round the top sites of Berlin – places like the Brandenburg Gate – led by an experienced and fun guide. But what about a more hardcore driving experience? Well we’ve got that covered too. Book our Quad Tour Offroad activity, and drive these metal beasts cross-country. Don’t worry if you’ve never sat on a Quad Bike let alone driven one there will be instructors at hand. And believe us, you’ll be glad of them, since these big bikes are harder to handle than they look.
But we’d be remiss if we didn’t talk about that classic stag do driving activity: Indoor Go-Karting. This is great if you love a bit of competition and want to prove that driving skills could be formula 1 level!
If you seek something of a slower tempo, then Berlin has a large number of beer gardens found in some very picturesque locations. Germany is known to produce some of the best beers in the world at very acceptable prices. Brands such as Oettinger, Bitburger and Erdinger can be found in gorgeously green locations such as Cafe am Neuen See situated in the heart of the Tiergarten. These provide the perfect locations to soak up the sun, grab some local nosh and discuss what carnage awaits the stag that evening. If you’re really into beer, then we can take you on a microbrewery tour – which includes a tasting session at the end.
If the weather is as gloomy as an England in a penalty shootout, then Berlin has countless beer halls in which to seek shelter. Traditional German boozers such as Brauhaus Mitte and Hofbräuhaus München Berlin are located in the Alexanderplatz area and resemble a miniature Oktoberfest.
But if you’re on a stag weekend in Berlin you should take advantage of being in the German capital to soak up its rich history, and attractive sites such as the Brandenburg Gate. Of course if you’re on a two night bender time will be of the essence. That’s we recommend going on a SightBeering tour – that way you can enjoy a tour of the city’s sights, while stopping off for beers along the way…result! Whatever you choose we’re sure you’ll have a smashing (or very smashed) time in Berlin, where there are infinite things to do on a stag weekend!
