The club[edit]

Roadrunner's Paradise Club

The Roadrunner's Paradise is a hard rock club, located in a nice historical monument. It is placed on the border of the localitys Mitte and Prenzlauerberg of Berlin, in the former district Königsstadt. The club is located in a former boiler house of the Königstadt brewery. The building is an historical monument built in the end of 19th century. It is accessible via the third backyard of the commercial courtyard.


Music will be played from 19:00 to 2:00am by DJ Jan Canto. He will provide you the best taste of German music, from pop to heavy metal. During the party, feel free to talk to him and suggest some sounds you'd like to hear!


Food is offered by Wikimedia Deutschland during the evening. We will provide a large variety of pizzas, that will be served at 19:30 and 21:00 in the party venue. Vegetarian and vegan pizzas will be included.

If you have any concern or question, feel free to contact us.


Drink coupons will be offered to the attendees when they arrive at the party venue. You will receive 2 coupons that give you access to soft drinks, beer and wine. Drink ordering will be at the bar.

If you want to order more drinks, you will have to pay them by yourself.

Disclaimer: a good party doesn't have to be a super-drunk party. Please be careful and remember that you still have a full weekend to enjoy, starting on Saturday at 9:00 ;)


The access to the venue is accessible for people in wheelchair. The food tent, main room, bar are as well.

The toilets of the venue have a 80cm wide but are not specifically designed for wheelchairs so may be a bit difficult to access.

Unfortunately, the underground stations in Berlin are not always accessible. The safest route to travel in Berlin is the bus (always accessible).
