The following is a part of a larger project I have been working on for several months now. I publish it here with the hope that I get some feed back that inspires me to finish the admittedly bogged down project. It is rather long and attempts to gather in to one place all one needs to know to make a successful Artemis visit. I do not with in make any specific recommendations of girls to see, rather I try to give an over view of the set up one finds, how to get there, where to stay and what services and facilities you will find.

12 for 10 entry promotion-If you buy a card for 10 entries you are given 2 for free. The card must be used within one year so this is of limited use to many foreign visitors. I also believe the card to be non-transferable which means you could not use it as a group entry discount.
How to get there:
By transit-the easiest way to get around in Berlin is by using the well served public transit system. Artemis is located close to SBahn Westkreuz on the Ring Line & S75. Once you get yourself to Westkreuz take the only exit there is and you will find yourself in a small parking lot/drop-off space. Walk towards the exit to the parking lot, across a small rail bridge until you come to a main road. Turn left (against the flow of the traffic) and walk a couple of hundred meters (over a larger bridge crossing the railway) until you come to a parking lot entrance on your left. This is the Artemis parking and the entrance to the building you will see from here. For further instructions please see the two Walk With Angus video episodes for Artemis. The first shows the above route from Westkreuz and the second the alternate route from Halensee SBahn.
Leaving the club late in the evening, it should be noted, you will on weekends be able to catch an SBahn pretty much all night-that is on Friday & Saturday nights. On week nights the SBahn shuts down pretty early and you might just find yourself without a ride back to the hotel from Westkreuz. If you have found a hotel close to Artemis you have no problem. This area of town, while seemingly a wee bit uninhabited at night, is safe to walk around at any time in my experience. If you are staying closer to the Zoologischer Garten Bhf make your way to the Halensee SBahn. From there you will be able to catch a night bus that leaves about once every half hour. That or hang around in Artemis until after 04:00 a.m. when the SBahn starts up again. And there are always taxis lined up at the Artemis entrance.
Driving-If you have a GPS system just set it for 32-36 Halenseestr. and follow the voice. One caveat though-on google maps at least 32-36 shows up as in the middle of the railway bridge and some other transit searches I have used do not recognise the address. This maybe because the address is smack dab in the middle of railway land and the Berlin autobahn system. Whatever the case by the time you get close you should recognise the large red Artemis neon sign on the building’s roof. But it should also be noted that driving to Artemis the approach is on a one way feeder street to the autobahn. That is Halenseestr. is split by the autobahn with the northerly traffic flow on one side of the autobahn and the southerly flow on the other. So driving can be just a wee bit confusing to a newly landed driver. My advise-best use transit or taxis.
As Artemis is a city FKK(located with in central Berlin) hotels nearby are plentiful.And if your hotel lies on or near the Ring Bahn or near the Zoologischer Garten Bhf you will have little problem reaching the facility. A couple of hotels I am familiar with, which are within easy walking distance are the Kronenprinz and a branch of the Ibis chain. Links found below. Note that in busy periods these hotels will need to be booked well in advance. Especially the Ibis as it is right next to the Messe and popular with business travellers.
Artemis is situated in a large but fairly nondescript building close to convention/trade-show facilities (Messe) in the western part of Berlin. There are three public floors. On the main floor you will find the main entrance/intake desk, the cash stash lockers, the guests’ locker room and main showers, a large public bar facility, a kino area and the dining room. You will also see an entrance to the women’s facilities but these are, for obvious reasons, off limits to the guests, of which you are one.
The downstairs holds the health & wellness facilities. There you will find another bar (just serving soft drinks, coffee & tea), the saunas (60 deg “bio-sauna” & 90 deg Finnish sauna) , the hamam or Turkish bath (rarely used by my observation), a large pool & two small cold pool dips, another kino, a few semi-private ( having walls that do not reach the ceiling & curtain doors) rooms, lounging spaces, an exercise room, tanning beds, and toilet facilities.
The upstairs (one over the main floor) is public but only visitable in the company of a girl. That is once you meet a girl in the bar, or anywhere else, and you agree to go to a room she will take you up the stairs to see if a room is available. During busy times you might have to wait a bit on the landing for one to become available, but otherwise the girl chooses a key from the key rack and off you go. There are about 27 rooms available most of which(avoid rooms 14& 7) are nicely appointed and decorated.
There is also, during the summer months, and outdoor component to Artemis but is is sorely lacking if one has in mind the outdoor facilities at other some FKK in Germany. Artemis finds itself pressed between railway lines on one side and the autobahn on the other. Out back is a small strip of grass where one can set up a tanning bed and perhaps, at certain times during the morning, find some sun. There is also a roof top patio with loungers and even some larger day beds that could be used for sessions. But it is noisy up there, with sounds of the autobahn, and the climb up is on metallic grate staircase that is difficult to negotiate in the high heeled shoes worn by many of the girls. As a result, in my experience, it is never particularly well populated and not the best place at Artemis to go meet the girls. Let’s face it, unless Artemis can somehow improve their outdoor area, it is largely and indoor club. Note-there are plans for an extensive outdoor facility to be built in the Artemis parking lot. These plans though seem to be well behind schedule. Speculation s that the needed permits from the city are holding it up. Stay turned for further developments.
Entrance fee-80 Euros for a day pass. This includes all day entry (you can exit during the day and be readmitted if you register with the front desk as you leave), all soft drinks, coffee (incl. latte, cappuccino etc.), food and use of all health & wellness facilities. Not included-sessions with the girls(sex), therapeutic massage.
Sexual services-the standard price for sexual services is 60 Euros for a half hour of private time in a room, in the kino or in one of the more public day beds in the main bar. This sex should include blow job without a condom (unless you specify otherwise), standard (vaginal) sex with a condom. Depending on the girl’s agreement you can also have public sex pretty much anywhere on the main floor. Note that the girl has to agree and I would recommend that these sorts of shenanigans be limited to the busier nights when things get a little wild. That being said you are probably just limited by your own tolerance to public displays of sex. And, as noted, the tolerance of the particular girl with whom you find yourself.
Some of the girls also provide extras. Standard are: cim(come in mouth)-50 Euros, cof (come on face)-50 Euros, anal sex-100 Euros. Keep in mind that not all girls offer all extra services and some may be ymmv (your milage may vary) depending on how the girl feels about you & your general level of cleanliness. But then as this is a wellness facility you should not have too much difficulty keeping clean should you? Also, I am of the opinion that the kinkier desires some of us have, and want fulfilled, are best found in an environment other than the FKK. That is I see no reason why, if it is something you desire, you should not engage in such activities as golden shower or even S&M domination submission games. But the FKK environment is just not logistically set up for such play and so I recommend you go to a facility that is and where a girl might be a specialist. It is just easier for all concerned and will probably be cheaper, and more satisfying, for you-the customer.
And as noted in the more general FKK guidelines of this guide, the level of sexual services you receive is dependent, much more so than in an apartment bordello, upon your ability to charm the girls and bring your shinning personality/manliness into play.
Artemis does have alcoholic drinks available at the main bar-beer, wine, hard liquor and champagne. You have to buy bar tokens at the front desk which you then give to the bartender. But this is not the place to come and drink. Prices are high (10 Euros for a beer or shot & much more for champagne) and the beer (Heineken on draft) comes in a plastic drinking mug. Need I say more? I guess if you have the cash (starts at €250 for a bottle of Möet) and want to impress the girls go for it, it can’t hurt your reputation with the ladies to drop that cash. But in my experience the girls are much more interested in spending time with polite & well mannered men than boers trying to impress by dropping the cash. At least the girls I personally want to spend time with.
Artemis offers self serve breakfast & diner in the small dining room off the main bar. The food, as with most FKK, is not them main event but is always passable and does the job. But there is always room for improvement here, in my opinion. During the summer months they open in the evening an outside dining area (along the northern wall of the building) that grills daily, weather permitting. The food here, if you like German grill, is always an improvement from the normal fare. The restaurant hours of operation are-11:00-15:00 breakfast and 18:00-02:00 diner.
Smoking is allowed at Artemis in the main bar, the area around spiral stair case/entry and upstairs in and around the session room. The wellness area, downstairs bar and fitness room is non smoking.
As Artemis is a large FKK there always seems to be a variety of women on hand of different types and nationalities. Artemis seems to have both its’ full time crew, women a regular guest will see there week after week, and a number of women you will see there occasionally as the live out of town and only work a week or two a month at Artemis. And of course there are always women who might work there for just a short time and move on.
My experience with the women of Artemis has, over all, been very good. It seems that the management of the club does go to great lengths to make sure that they are happy and that they treat the guests with fairness and respect. That is you will unlikely be scammed in anyway here for time in the room or services offered and not performed properly. And if an incident does occur management takes the time to listen to both sides of the story and make a ruling-not always on the side of the girl. I believe they are fair.
The number of the women working the floor varies but seems to peak in the evening hours between 20:00 and 24:00 hrs.. Again, the management has house rules in place to make sure that there is always number of women available, even in the early hours of the morning. Of course, the later it gets in the work day, the less effort the women appear to make to find customers. But then this is not necessarily a bad thing. The one criticism I might make about the Artemis women is that there can be a certain aggressiveness about their approach. That is, when guests are in short supply some (not all but some) women get bothersome with their sales technique and don’t know how to take”no” for an answer. But then this can also be a good thing for shy guests and is, anyway, all part of the fun and play of the FKK environment.
Best time to visit:
This is very subjective and probably depends much on the time you have available to visit. It also depends on what you are looking for. Afternoons will find less women (but still plenty) but those who are there tend to be willing to take more time to talk before suggesting a session. Evenings, especially Friday and Saturday, you will find the really “hot” girls in Artemis, but also many more customers and a more frenetic atmosphere. My preference is always to arrive at the club in the late afternoon and stay until about 01:00 or 02:00. Perhaps the one time I always try to avoid, if possible, are the times when there is a big trade show at the Messe or, less frequently, a sporting event at the Olympic Stadium. These events can swell the ranks at Artemis to unbelievable proportions and make the place resemble nothing less than a sex factory. Of course seeing this can also be something of an experience, but both the quality of the girls’ service and the overall cleanliness of the facility can take a hit.
The schedules for both the Messe and the Olympic Stadium are published on-line. Just follow the links below
Of course your visit to Artemis may well be dictated, as a visitor to Berlin, by your own time constraints. Go when you can, but be sure to leave a minimum of 6 hours for a visit. This is the time, I feel, it takes to full appreciate the atmosphere of Artemis.
Over all I have to say that Artemis is an excellent club. Keep in mind that this is the club where the vast majority of my FKK adventures have taken place. This means though that I have seen the club in all states of busy-ness and quiet times. I have forged friendships (such as they are) with some of the girls and become known to the support staff. The over all impression though is of a club where you will find sexy & friendly women and be fairly treated in your search for fun and fantasy fulfilment.
