Berghain Closed Until April 20th

Berlin’s leading club is closing until the end of April.

Berghain announced today it has canceled all events until April 20th. This follows news that the city will be banning all events with more than 1,000 people, as urged by Chancellor Angela Merkel, who was frustrated today to learn that Berlin had initially ignored health minister Jens Spahn’s instructions,as RA reports.

“The task force is also considering temporarily closing Berlin clubs, but a shutdown of just a few weeks would inevitably lead to the bankruptcy of most clubs,” reads a translated excerpt. “The club commission has therefore contacted banks and crowdfunding providers, as well as the Berlin Senate, to set up a rescue fund for hardship cases.”
