Once an abandoned biscuit factory, now a summer time play ground for adults – adorned in sand, an array of wooden beach-like structures, a derelict camper-van,  a pond (that, with rose-tinted vision, I’d name a lake) complete with an oh-so tantalizing slide leading into it and a mini-island in the middle… the perfect dance floor.

Located in secluded Rummelsburg Sisyphos manages to stimulate a festival vibe – in which days and nights blue into one; it is a safe haven where you are allowed (more, encouraged) to lose your mind. From the moment you enter through, into the gated venue, you will immediately feel apart of the familiar and temporary Techno-community inside, which will reassemble once again the follow weekend.

At night time the outside light shows are mesmerizing, however if you ever need a break from dancing under the open skies, enjoy some time out sitting around the open bonfire. Moreover, if you’re lucky you might catch a fire display, performed on an elevated platform up ahead, or manage to find a way into the private gardens at the back – complete with hammocks.

The crowd notable is less pretentious than it is in other clubs, probably due to the relaxed door policy. The no camera policy adds to the magical feel in the air.

Enjoy discounted entry (5 euro) on Sundays.

I moved to Berlin from London 1.5 yeas ago, and now with a range of jobs under my belt from art gallery assistant - blogger - au pair - call centre agent and having lived in 12 flat shares to date, for better or for worse I can not imagine leaving. When I first arrived here I found, as when experiencing most capital cities, that it took me awhile to locate something that resembled the "true" city, and to permeate through the touristic sheen... I'd love the opportunity to share what I have found through up-to-date and relevant tips, so that you can attempt to fast-track your integration into this vivacious and perpetually fluctuating city... and save time trolling through endless out-dated travel guides (like I did).
