These Berlin fetish events cater to every desire

Of course, nobody in Berlin actually needs a special event in order to go out in leather, rubber, and sportswear, or to attend BDSM parties. However, we have to admit, when the community from all over Europe and even the world converges on the city, it's simply a lot more fun. Luckily, the Berlin fetish community organises fetish festivals at all times of the year - from 'Ostertreffen’ at Easter, to 'Snax United' in autumn.

On Easter Saturday, "Berghain" (pictured) and "Lab.Oratory" organise the huge fetish sex party "Snax Club".


Already on every ordinary weekend, "Berghain" and "Lab" offer more than enough opportunity for debauched parties with a fetish focus. But this is no comparison to the annual "Snax" party. On Easter Saturday, the otherwise normally closed doors between "Lab" and "Berghain" open for the "Snax Club" - and at the same time the gates of lust are wide open. Thousands of men meet for this event. The dress code is "Dirty & Fetish". (red)

Easter Berlin

In a way, it's not only the large fetish community that looks forward to the fetish Easter festival 'Ostertreffen’. It is also a kind of starting signal for everyone else: From now on, after a long winter, the summer season finally begins. Of course, this will be celebrated in style. Especially in 2023, because "Easter Berlin" is already taking place for the 50th time! The many fetish bars and clubs are working extra shifts, while friends from all over the world meet on the streets and enjoy the first warm rays of sunshine. The main celebrations take place at the numerous parties. One highlight is the official 'PiG Berlin' party - and the name says it all! (red)

"Folsom Europe" in September is probably the best-known fetish festival in the city.

Folsom Europe

One of the biggest and best-known fetish events in the world is "Folsom Europe", which always takes place in September. Mainly gay leather fans meet here, but the event is also open to other fetishists. Similar to "Easter Berlin", people come to the city from all over. Accordingly, it's easy to meet interesting people. "Folsom Europe" stands for good interaction, new friendships, full bars and exciting parties. In short: Folsom is simply fun! (ps)

The Lab: For all those who like it sexy and kinky.

Snax United

Because one "Snax" party a year can never satisfy all cravings, the team from "Lab" and "Berghain" also organises the "Snax United" every autumn. This event, which likewise takes place in both locations together, is primarily aimed at lovers of sportswear in all possible variations. (red)
