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.
