Enter the techno club that became Berghain
Ostgut ran between 1998 and 2003 and was formerly located in an old railway zone along the River Spree. The club became a locus for the best DJ talent in Berlin. And alongside its pioneering house and techno sound, Ostgut fostered a raw, libidinous energy carried on from the early male-only Snax parties that Michael Teufele and Norbert Thormann had run at various places around the city. Needless to say, it set the very foundations of the kind of clubbing experience now synonymous with the Berghain name.
