Bright Site – The Berlin Bouldering Project

If you’ve visited Berlin’s multitude of museums and enjoyed the hot spots, then maybe you fancy something a bit different while you’re there. With climbing becoming more and more popular, bouldering is a great option. Germany is home to some of the best boulderers and its many bouldering halls make up for its flat landscape. This particular hall offers both indoor and outdoor bouldering (weather dependant) and walls for all abilities. With a friendly atmosphere and upbeat music, the musky aroma and dull interior are easily forgotten. It even has a café and rest area selling cakes and drinks.

For a more sociable experience, it’s best to go on a Wednesday evening or at the weekend where locals and tourists alike enjoy a beer in the café afterwards, or outside if it’s sunny.

It may feel a bit intimidating at first due to the vast room and plentiful walls and pathways, but even if you’ve never bouldered before, the Bright Site locals are great at offering tips and showing you how it’s done.

Tip: Shoe hire is available for an extra €3 and chalk can be purchased at the front desk if needed.
