You don’t have to possess a great voice to sing along to your favourite hits, all you really need is a stage, a few beers to build your confidence and a slightly inebriated crowd to cheer you along. Calling all wannabe rock stars and moonlighting crooners – these karaoke joints in Germany’s capital have it all, and are waiting for you to step into the limelight.
Karaoke at Mauerpark
Set in an outdoor amphitheatre in Mauerpark, the free entry, large and enthusiastic crowds and loveable host make this karaoke spot one of the best in Berlin. It’s a must-see experience for any visitor to the city, even if you participate as nothing more than a joyous crowd member, firing up the brave souls singing their hearts out on stage. Mauerpark turns into a festival every Sunday and in summer this karaoke spot becomes the heart of it all.
Monster Ronson’s Ichiban Karaoke
Monster Ronson’s Ichiban is everything you’ve always wanted to try but haven’t had the courage before coming to Berlin. It’s a queer bar packed with a lot of sass and number one hits that will make you a hero just for one night. Epic moments await at this karaoke bar, and if you don’t drink too much you might even remember them in the morning. Doors open at 7pm.
Karaoke and Erlebnisbar Green Mango
With over 150 thousand songs in their kitty, this karaoke bar in Schöneberg is where songbirds go to dream.

It is open every day from 7.30pm, except for Mondays – the holy day of rest for any rock star.
Kim’s is just what a karaoke should be – Japanese kitsch, oozing cheesiness, terrible singing and alcohol. Tucked away in a Kreuzberg backyard, Kim’s is the real deal. With a largely Korean audience, it now attracts a diverse crowd of people and tourists who get a kick out of the trashy atmosphere and the enthusiastic performers. Not intimidating and authentic, it’s all about the fun of it at this karaoke bar.

Sing City, Karaoke Bar
Like the name suggests, Sing City is where your vocal cords go to vacation.
