No reopening due to Corona pandemic


Dear friends and followers,

on the home stretch of reopening our club rooms we now unfortunately face force majeure:
In view of the current health situation we have to postpone our reopening indefinitely.

We were just about to publish our event dates and resume operations. Thanks to the numerous donations and many tireless helpers we managed to finalize most of the construction work. Also, all permits have been issued. There was nothing to stop us from reopening for Easter Berlin.
The expected – and badly needed – revenues from the Easter events will now fail to materialize, which once again threatens our existence…

That’s why we need your help once again to bridge the “Corona Lockdown”! We have to raise a considerable amount of money each and every month to cover our running costs (rent, heating, electricity, etc.). Our membership fees most likely will not suffice.

Please continue to support us to make sure we can survive the closure time.

We will naturally inquire whether we can make use of any announced government assistance.

Many thanks to all our present and future supporters.
Keep healthy and take care!

Many greetings
Your Quälgeist Team

Easter Flea market canceled

On occasion of the current health situation and the the SARS-CoV-2 Containment Regulation passed by the Berlin Senate, we have to cancel the BDSM and fetish flea market that was scheduled for April 11.

About Quälgeist Berlin e.V.

Quaelgeist Berlin e.V. is a non-commercial association of SM and Fetish enthusiasts. We maintain our own space where our members can practice and enjoy their fetishes and preferences and live out their fantasies. With approx. 300 sqm. we have a great variety of play options with St. Andrew’s Cross, cages, a rack, wall bars, hoists & pulleys, a hanging cage, slings and many other play-tools available. Be sure to bring your own favourite personal toys with you.

Quaelgeist is “your playroom”. Our goal is to provide a safe and secluded space for you and your play partner(s). We are not the usual Berlin cruising venue, nor do we have a classical “Darkroom”. While the majority of our guests come with their play partners, there’s also much opportunity to get in contact with new people at our bar. If you are a newbie or visitor to Berlin, please just ask the bar staff, they will be happy to help you.

Quaelgeist Berlin organizes events regularly on the weekend and on every other Monday and Tuesday. The majority of the parties are for gay men, many are open to all varieties of SM/fetishes, while others are themed for specific fetishes (see the events calendar). We also host theme weekends which allow extended SM play and SM training (Bondage, SM and Slave weekends). There are also special events for women and/or trans* and inter* people.

At all Quaelgeist events safety is of number one priority. All sexual acts are only allowed with the mutual consent of all participants. We also provide consultation with regard to questions about SM, safety, and health issues. We meet once a month at our MoM-Sitzung (meeting) to discuss program and organizational topics. These meetings are open to everyone and offer a good contact point for people who are interested in learning more about us. Between these meetings the executive board manages the association’s affairs.

Our program lives and thrives through the participation of our members. At our events, you will always find the community members behind the bar and at the entrance. Quaelgeist Berlin’s activities are financed through membership fees. Newcomers and visitors to Berlin can become a temporary member for an evening. Regular visitors to our events are encouraged to consider becoming club members. We are happy to send membership information and application form if you are interested.

We look forward to your visit and wish both you and us lots of fun with the “rough times” in life.

Quälgeist Berlin e.V.
