BERLIN has narrowly beaten London to the title of “most fun” city in a poll of travellers commissioned by travel review site GetYourGuide and – er, Berlin-based – GoEuro.
The German capital was among 1,800 cities ranked according to categories such as “bars”, “clubs”, “shopping”, “adult entertainment” and “activities”. Factors such as the average price of a beer were also taken into account.
While it did not finish top in any of the major categories – London’s clubs and concerts, Tokyo’s bars and shops, and New York’s activities were voted the world’s best – it did enough across each area to get to the number one spot. Berlin’s beer was also the cheapest of the top 25 cities.
Paris came in at number three.
Says Paul Sullivan, the Daily Telegraph’s Berlin expert: ‘Berlin’s nightlife is justly world-renowned thanks to unpretentious dress codes, an inherently low-key/low-hype culture (many clubs are hidden away and don’t allow photography of any kind) … and a propensity to stay open until the last person is more or less stretchered out.
‘From slick spots like Watergate and Weekend to industrial behemoths like Berghain and Stattbad Wedding, the party never seems to end here, and the beers and eventual taxi home won’t break your wallet either.’
