Attempt to get into Berghain through this virtual reality simulator

Save yourself a wasted trip to Berlin and see if you make the Berghain grade

Berghain is one of the world’s most famous clubs that people travel across the globe to attend. It can often turn out to be a wasted trip with the nightspot’s notorious door policy turning hundreds of people away each night.

To give you a better shot next time, someone has set up a virtual reality simulator to practice gaining entry to the club.

The simulation is seen through the eyes of a punter walking through the club’s queue and coming face-to-face with the doorman. He then asks you three questions, such as “How old are?”, “Are you on drugs tonight?”, “Is this your first time?”, Where have you come from?” and “Who’s playing tonight?”.

Facial recognition software is used to analyse your body language on the levels of “anger”, “sadness”, “amazed” and “euphory” to decide if you make the cut. Then you’re either let in or sent on your way.

Head to to try your luck. It's really not that easy.
