Klunkerkranich Rooftop

Klunkerkranich is still thriving and has become one of the most popular roof-top bars and restaurants in Berlin. It's usually very well visited, especially on the weekends. That said, the vibe there is very hippy-esque in the evenings, with an eclectic choice of DJs and sometimes live-gigs. It's not my taste, exactly, but still worth a visit for the exceptional view.

There have been some (relatively secret) raves on the upper parking deck of the Neukölln Arkaden, but now they have been officially transformed into a summer garden, bar, rooftop-chill out space that invites you to spend the evenings watching the sun go down while sipping on cool drinks. We were astonished when we first saw what the people behind the Klunkerkranich have made out of the parking lot deck! Lots of wood, space, and love put into the project. The gardens and little beets are a fantastic idea that, by time, will add a lush green scenery to the (hopefully everlasting) blue horizon.

  1. Thank you for this great article. You have to pay tribute to the owners of Klunkerkranich, who have transformed grey ugly concrete into a green and even family-friendly space. Honestly, I love to be there. But there is also one downside to it. Before, everybody who knew the place could enter the parking deck and enjoy the beautiful view on Berlin (and perhaps drink a beer or two). Now, the only way to get in is to pay for the whole experience. During the week, the parking deck is now completely closed to anybody and shielded by a huge steel door.

    Please do not get me wrong, the Klunkerkranich is a great project made by people who seem to love what they are doing and are pretty good at it. But on the other hand, it is one open space less.
