Woops, didn't quite happy like that. I came home empty handed (no shopping) and feeling very rough! But it was worth it!
Night one, I was desperate to try KaterHolzig, and I wasn't disappointed. We were worried, as with most of the good clubs in Berlin that we wouldn't get in, but we made it through the selection process.
You're not allowed to take pictures in the clubs, I guess to maintain an air of mystery about the places and to keep certain peoples integrity intact! The selection process is very annoying but they seem to be able to do that as the clubs will always be popular and they like to keep a good mixture of people in the places.
This was Katerholzig:

I got the impression that Glastonbury had got quite a lot of ideas for last years Shangri la from here.

So how do you describe Berghain? this site UBerlin does it quite well. Suffice to say it is absolutely mental and everyone should go check it out unless easily offended.
Us girls came out saying that it was amazing, but that we would never ever go back there again, only to return the next day after much peer pressure. Once you have your stamp on the Friday, you can get in all weekend, it doesn't shut, it just closes the blinds and keeps on banging the techno.
PS: if you hate Techno, don't bother with Berlin. It's everywhere!
