It´s no wonder that so many people choose to see in the New Year in Berlin. Imagine just for starters the biggest open-air New Year´s Eve party in the world. Live bands, electronic music, light and laser shows, visual media and countless places for enjoying food and drink. And of course it would not be a New Year´s celebration without a huge firework display Berlin style.
Since the fall of the Wall, the Brandenburg Gate, the Straße des 17. Juni (17th of June Street) and the Siegessäule (the Victory Column) have been providing the backdrop and setting for over a million New Year´s Eve revellers. The main stage at Platz des 18. März will see fantastic live music and superstar DJs while behind the Gate you will find the “party mile” lined with bars, international food stalls, more stages and dancefloors as far as the eye can see, finishing up at the Siegessäule Column. No names on the list or reservations are needed for this free for all party.
