Berlin invites travelers and Berliners to celebrate New Years together on an open air event. The parade takes place on “Straße des 17. Juni” between the Brandenburger Gate and the Victory Column and attracts more than a million people each year. Various bands and DJs provide a good vibe to the delight of people with different tastes. The festival also includes light shows as well as various food stands serving regional and international meals. The beginning of the new year is marked with an astonishing firework. Please be aware that security checks are carried out at all entrances, as it is not allowed to bring any fireworks to the festival due to safety reasons. Of course, admission is free.
