Tresor (German for safe or vault) is an underground techno nightclub and record label. The club was founded in March 1991 in one of the vaults in the old Wertheim department store in Mitte, the central part of the former East Berlin, next to the famous Potsdamer Platz, however the history of the club goes back to 1988. In 1988, the electronic music label Interfisch opened the UFO Club in Berlin. UFO was the original centre of Berlin house and techno, but due to financial problems the club closed in 1990.

After UFO closed, Interfisch's head, Dimitri Hegemann and some investers in the club found a new club space in East Berlin. This was advantageous timing, as it was only a few months before that Germany unified. The vaults under the Wertheim department store proved to be the perfect location for a club, and Tresor quickly became the place to be in Berlin. Tresor continues to be a popular club to this day, having expanded several times to include an outdoor music garden, and a second club on the top floor of the Tresor building.

In May 2007, Tresor Club re-opened it's doors. The location has moved to another building - larger, but with industrial charme. The 'Vault' is still the same, deep below the building, dark and enlightened with only a few effects, such as stroboscopes and scanners. The former 'Globus' is now known as 'Batterieraum', still playing house music.
