Berghain, a nightclub in Berlin, Germany,
is even more famous for what happens
outside its doors than inside them.
The club, which is sometimes referred to
as the “most exclusive” dance party in
the world, is famous for its incredibly strict
yet completely mysterious entry rules.
Britney Spears was once allegedly denied
entry for having the “wrong outfit” and Conan
O’Brien filmed his own failed attempt in 2016.
There are ways to improve your
chances of getting in though.
Journalists and travel bloggers have published
how-to guides on the topic for years now.
there’s even a website, BerghainTrainer.com, that lets
you try your luck on a virtual reality doorman.
Now, TikTok users have begun sharing
their keys to success — both researched
and learned firsthand — for getting into
the world-famous club.
The trend seemingly started
with a teenager who goes by
the username pjsorbet.
The TikToker posted her own experience
with the BerghainTrainer simulator,
a test she failed miserably.
“The way they judge you to get into the
club is solely based on your vibes,” she says
in the clip. “They vibe check you”.
The teen’s post inspired follow-ups from
more experienced users, including a Sweden-based
influencer named bryanboycom.
The tips, which he shared in a now-viral
TikTok ranged from going in the afternoon
and waiting in line alone to being polite and
avoiding speaking English to the bouncers.
“I’ve been to Bergain many times. Never been
rejected,” he wrote at the start of his video
