Berlin’s local government continues its hunt for potential open-air venues.
Green spaces such as parks, as well as squares and streets, were all recommended to assess in a letter sent to the 12 mayors, with special event permits set to be made available.
The move is being made to allow clubs to put on events for “culture-hungry guests” to the city during summer, said the Berlin Club Commission.
“Berlin misses its diverse club scene,” the city’s economics minister Ramona Pop told the Berliner Morgenpost. “Clubs and bars are suffering economically during the corona crisis. We want to create legal opportunities to party in public areas for the clubs and Berliners.”
It’s expected that Berlin’s clubs will be put in charge of running the events, giving them a chance to try to make some profit.
