Youth Culture Programme - Berlin

A love of 'techno' dance music has united young Germans from both sides of the fallen wall

A love of dance music has united young Germans from both sides of the fallen wall. After 28 years of separation, Germany became one country again eight years ago. But it took the new dance scene, techno, to really bring young people from East and West together. We went to Berlin to find out how the city has changed since unification, and discover why the capital’s dance clubs and bars have become such a solid part of youth culture in Germany.
