How to get into Berghain — it's a puzzle that most of the dance music community has given up on/gotten bored with a long time ago (aside from the odd computer game or mickey-taking festival stage), but apparently it still fascinates the mainstream media enough that the BBC has now chimed in on the debate.

Berghain’s door policy has become almost as famous as the techno DJs the Berlin nightclub has nurtured since opening its doors in 2004, striking fear into the hearts of ravers across the planet. But now you can practice getting past well-known and much feared doorman Sven Marquardt. Sort of.
