The Numbers of Berghain is a website by Israeli designer Artiom Dashinsky that analyses the statistics of Berghain’s bookings over the past seven years. You can check out some of its findings below.

To make way for Berghain's new entrance hall, the club has taken the decision to take down the club's iconic mural and sell the pieces online.
