The 18-year-old woman was initially attacked by a man who dragged her into bushes outside a techno event at a nightclub on the Hans-Bunte-Straße, in Freiburg, Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany.
He had previously befriended her inside the club and bought her a drink, police say.
After raping her, the Syrian national reportedly went back inside the party to get his friends.
Seven other men, including one German national, then each raped the woman, according to reports.
Eight men are in custody.
The incident happened on October 14 and police officers are urging any witnesses to come forward.
The woman told police she was left “defenceless” after the first rape.
Officers are investigating the possibility her drink was spiked.
The bosses of two clubs on the Hans-Bunte-Straße – the Hans-Bunte-Areal and the Velvet Nightclub – said they are both shaken and cooperating with the authorities.
It is not clear which club the victim had attended on the night of her attack.
All CCTV footage has been submitted to police.
“People come to us to have fun,” says Sven Galvez, from techno club Hans-Bunte-Areal.
“That someone would have such a terrible experience is horrifying.”
