26.04 – 28.04.2024
One of the oldest tango meetings in Europe
Since 2003 tango dancers from all over the world have travelled to Berlin to dance and share beautiful moments at our Berlin tango marathon.
Located beautifully on the bank of the river Spree, you can enjoy three days of (nearly) non-stop dancing at our venue — plus a lovely view.
Some of the best DJs will take care of the music, delicious food will be provided, and a great wooden dance floor is waiting for your steps.
Corazon marathon is role-balanced and the dance level is generally very good.
While our finest DJs cater to your musical needs, we offer complimentary services to make your marathon truly unforgettable:
- Empanadas (normal and veggie), street food, coffee, cake, and snacks during the marathon. Kindly note that we don’t have breaks. You can dance at all times and eat whenever you like.
- Tango fashion and shoes (provider 2022 tba)
- Massages to keep you fit throughout the weekend (provider 2022 tba)
And, if you arrive early and/or stay longer and can’t stop dancing, don’t forget about our pre-party on Thursday and the after-party on Sunday. You will meet Berlin tango dancers and experience characteristic Berlin milonga places. Exact venues and times tba.

Berlin has many hotels, hostels, and AirBnBs for every budget and public transport connects you well, even throughout the night. Here are three options close to our venue:
- Die Fabrik Hostel
- Very cheap and close-by
- Eastern Comfort Boat Hostel
- Yes, it's a boat :-)
- Holiday Inn Eastside
- Proper 4-star hotel, quieter location
- How many places are available?
- About 280 and these fill quickly.
- Do I need a partner?
- No, you can register on your own as a single dancer of any role.
- Can I sign up as a double-role dancer?
- We are sorry but you can't.
- Couple registrations: What do I need to know?
- The primary registrant is responsible for paying both tickets to us. Couple registrations are also only valid as long as both participants attend: If one partner drops out, we need to cancel the other partner's ticket too to keep the role balance. If this happens to you and you still wish to attend, please contact us. You might be able to re-register as a single dancer or with someone on the wait list.
- How can I pay?
- You can pay with paypal, by direct debit (SEPA) or credit card through paypal (no account required), or by manual bank transfer. Please keep in mind: Payment must be made within seven days after we have approved your registration. For couple registrations, all transactions go through the primary registrant, who is responsible for paying both tickets to us.
- I registered but I haven't heard back from you. Is something wrong?
- After registering you immediately receive a registration confirmation. We also send an approval or wait list email to all participants within a week. If you haven't got any emails from us, please check your spam folder. If that's empty too, please get in touch with us to check your data.
- I've been on the wait list for a long time now. Will this change?
- We can't promise. As we keep this event role-balanced, we can only assign spaces when a dancer of the other role also signs up. If you registered late, others are probably ahead of you in the queue.
- Oh no, I got sick and I can't make it. What do I do now?
- Please get in touch with us. Tickets are non-refundable but we might be able to transfer your ticket to someone on the wait list.
