When you arrive at Madame Claude, you're reminded of its history of a brothel. But, look past the big metal doors and head on down the stairs inside, you won't regret. We landed in the bar in the middle of the Wednesday night music quiz and joined it. Had such a blast, meeting locals and travellers from all over. Good,... More

Awesome place for people who like alternative, underground culture. I saw some great music there, the bar was great, people were friendly and the DJ in the bar was playing dark ambient psych. They also have furniture stuck to the ceiling and everything is upside down. Love it.

This place was great for a group of friends to sit for a beer. Good beer selection, very reasonable pricing and nice diverse mix of Berliners and foreigners. The DJ upstairs was very good and the music wasn't too loud for socializing. The music downstairs was also good with an intimate performing space.

Interesting place where the interior is in the ceiling. Cheap drinks and the place is like a labyrinth of a very decadent apartment with live music in the basement. There is a optional entry fee of 1-6 €. Worth a visit before going clubbing.

It is a quite small bar but it is worth a visit because it has unique style and the upside down consept makes it a must see of Berlin. Sometimes you have to pay a cheap donation (between 1-6 €) in order to get in but the location is really amazing. The first time I came there I was speechless!

Cool bar to enjoy the night and sit on cozy seats (if still avaulable). We spent a few nights in Madame Claudes and it was always fun. The things are different there so a great place to chat with friends and let the time pass.

This Kreuzberg labyrinth-bar it's famous for its upsidedown furniture, (you feel yourself a bit like Alice in Wonderland) I suggest it as a place to hit up for an early drink before going to a club. Worth a visit!😊

Madame Claude's is one of the strangest place I've ever been, whilst simultaneously fitting in perfectly within Berlin. The place is certainly atmospheric; the amazing upsidedown decor of the main bar creates the illusion that you're sitting on the ceiling as you listen to ambient music that wouldn't be out of place on a horror movie soundtrack. But we were... More

We went there because the queues for the nightclubs were too long and we weren't disappointed. The whole bar is upside down: you will find the garden up on the ceiling, along with the rest of the apartment. There was a dj, the music was very good and the alcohol was quite cheap. A good address :)

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Kreuzberg
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighbourhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
