Two Berlin nightclubs will shelter homeless throughout January and February
Two Berlin nightclubs will help the city’s homeless population as temperatures continue to drop in the German capital. Situated in Kreuzberg-Friedrichshain, Astra Kulturhaus and Bi Nuu will offer shelter to the homeless one night a week in January and February. Bi Nuu will reportedly take in a maximum of 15 women, while Astra Kulturhaus will accommodate 25 men.
“[It’s] great when clubs make such offers and take on social responsibility,” said Kreuzberg-Friedrichshain district spokeswoman, Sara Lühmann. “We are happy about every additional offer to further expand the number of cold weather places.”
Berlin is the host of 920 other emergency cold shelters this winter season, which will collectively assist Berlin’s approximate 6,000-8,000 homeless.
