Techno and dan­cing in the air-raid shel­ter

Es­sen has long been able to do what Ber­lin does: ex­cess­ive elec­tro-parties in un­usu­al loc­a­tions. One high­light is the Goeth­ebunker. This small club is in a former air raid bunker from the Second World War, and uses the build­ing for im­press­ive light pro­jec­tions on the con­crete walls. If you look care­fully on the out­side, you can still see the bul­let holes from the Second World War. However, you?ll also see a horse logo. It is a re­mind­er of the fact that be­fore it was taken over by the club, the space was a shop for rid­ing ac­cessor­ies. Today, the Goeth­ebunker is known for its ex­quis­ite book­ing of the best techno DJs, an out­stand­ing sound and min­im­al­ist fur­nish­ings, which pre­vent noth­ing and no-one from wildly dan­cing the night away.
