Berlin

Everyone knows that Berlin is the capital and the largest city in Germany. Berlin is a world city of science, culture, media, and politics. The metropolis is a very popular tourist destination. Berlin is well-known for its significant industries like IT, clean tech, pharmaceuticals, biomedical engineering, biotechnology, electronics and, construction.

Modern Berlin is a host of many sporting events and a home to world-renowned universities, museums, orchestras and, also entertainment venues. Its urban setting results in becoming a location for international film productions. Berlin is famous for a high quality of living, its diverse architecture, festivals and, nightlife.

Absolutely, Berlin is one of the world’s centers of club culture. This city is also known for the creative arts. Some opinions are that about 50 percent of the 32 million tourists came because of its unique nightlife scene and the “open spirit of the city”. People visited the city last year because of that reason and that brings billions in revenue.

But above all Berlin is dealing with many challenges and problems similar to the other clubs around the world. The statistics show that about 170 clubs have been closed in the city since 2011. Meanwhile, Berlin has big transformations with many properties and a huge demand for new luxury apartments that affect its urban landscape. Besides this, some clubs are at more risk of shutting down over noise disputes with residential buildings and neighboring businesses. According to the situation in Berlin, €1 million (equivalent to about $1.2 million) fund was provided by the parliament. This money will help to soundproof the clubs in the city center that can not afford the reconstructions.

Supporters of Berlin’s club culture are very satisfied with this move and have expressed hope that this measure will go a long way towards protecting the Berlin’s cultural. Check Tagesspiegel for more information about the fund.
