New Year’s Eve festival at Brandenburg Gate
There is no better way to celebrate the turning of the year in Berlin than the huge and amazing party at the Brandenburg Gate. In recent years big acts like Pet Shop Boys, Bonnie Tyler and the Scorpions have graced the stages so you know the music will be good.
Be prepared for massive crowds but it is usually considered safe as long as you are sensible. The locals will be just interested in having a good time and will probably welcome some company. Do not miss the fabulous fireworks display over the Gate after midnight.
