Vollgutlager:

The Vollgutlager – in the middle of Berlin’s trendy neighborhood Neukölln – is embedded in the area of the Alte Kindl brewery, formerly used as a production hall where the „Vollgut“, bottles, were processed on long assembly lines. The rough character of a former industrial production hall combined with remnants of the creative underground scene meet in the Vollgutlager and make up the special charm of this space.The entrance to the Vollgutlager is via the Kindl staircase on Neckarstraße, already offering a graphic highlight and past the Vollguter community garden. The garden is a open community project where one can learn from each other about sustainability, experiment and explore.

SchwuZ:

The SchwuZ was founded in 1977 and is Germany’s oldest queer club and largest queer cultural venue. They fought the fight for recognition and equal rights even when terms like gendering, hate speech or body shaming did not even exist.

Anyone who can relate to the term ‚queer‘ and the perception of it is welcome here. The SchwuZ is directly connected to and accessible through the Vollgutlager.
