Kinky Berlin: The best fetish clubs and events

According to fetish tailor, Petra dos Santos, no city in the world is as kinky as Berlin. Here she recommends the best events, clubs, and parties.

Fetishists meet up at Osterkonferenz (the Easter Conference)

For visitors to Berlin, I can recommend the Easter Conference, which takes place concurrently with the traditional gay get-togethers at Easter. Women, lesbians, non-binary, cis, trans, and queer people meet there. Great parties are scheduled; there are also play parties, and lots of workshops. Because people come from all over the world, the Leather Easter Meeting is a big, international meet-up. It's fantastic!

In September, fetishists meet at Folsom Europe.

Gay fetish paradise: ‘Folsom Europe’

‘Folsom Europe’ is also very well-known and always takes place in September. It's mainly gay leather fans who meet up there, but the event is also open to all other fetishists. I can recommend it for the very same reasons as the leather meeting: people come from everywhere, so you can easily meet other interesting people. With good interaction, full bars, and lots of parties - Folsom is just fun!

A fetish event not only for straight people: The ‘German Fetish Ball’

The ‘German Fetish Ball’ is primarily aimed at heterosexuals but is also open to non-heterosexuals. As with all events of this kind, the aim is to meet people who have the same interests, that is, people like us, who are different and special. The ball is guaranteed to be exciting, as there are always thousands of guests. In addition to the ball itself, there are several shows, a party with several dance floors, a fetish fair, and other events such as a kinky dinner.

Quälgeist is one of the best-known fetish clubs in Berlin.

Berlin's most beautiful SM club: Quälgeist

The Quälgeist is my favourite club. It used to be located on Mehringdamm but has since been driven out and has relocated to Mariendorf. Even so, it's great that Quälgeist is now back in business. The programme includes a wide variety of events such as evenings for men only or for women only, mixed evenings, and events for couples. There really is something for everyone. The new location is very nicely furnished, with lots of play opportunities. I'm happy that the Quälgeist is a place operated by good people, where you feel safe and in good hands.

Hedonistic partying for perverts of all kinks: The Kit Kat Club.

Hedonistic partying at the Kit Kat Club

No Berlin fetish list is complete without the Kit Kat Club. It's totally popular with all perverts because the mood and atmosphere there are really completely permissive. I would say that the Kit Kat is the most open club in the city. It's "come as you are", as long as it's about fetish. Straight, lesbian, gay, and everyone else meets up there. If you're really into hedonistic partying, this is the place to be!
