Berlin Clubs Are Turning Into Overnight Shelters For Homeless

Winter is approaching, and Berlin gets cold and dark, quickly becoming a place you generally don’t want to be outside at night. For the city’s homeless, there’s little refuge from Berlin’s bitter winter months, but this could be changing—thanks to several clubs in the Kreuzberg-Friedrichshain area.

According to Electronic Beats, a night each week in January and February, Astra Kulturhaus and Bi Nuu will open their doors to the homeless, cutting into their concert schedules to provide warm places to sleep during the coldest months of the year. It’s a responsible and charitable move, and one we hope to see repeated by other venues in the future.
