In the latest vote by the British trade magazine, in which hundreds of thousands of ravers take part every year, Cologne also won the inner-German duel again: Berlin’s “Berghain” only came in twelfth place (minus 6).

In 2022 only four German clubs are among the top 100 – there are two more in Berlin: the “Watergate” (35th place, up 1) and the “Tresor” (50th place, up 10).

“Hï Ibiza is the number 1 club in the world,” said DJ Mag. After two years on the podium, the Spanish club has made it to the top for the first time.

The country with the most clubs in the “DJ Mag” top 100 is the United States: “The USA reclaims the title of number 1 club country from the United Kingdom,” it said – with a total of 16 clubs ( plus 3).

In 2021, Great Britain led with a total of 14 clubs (12 in England and 2 in Scotland).
