Each year, Berlin welcomes its inhabitants, German citizens and all the visitors from different parts of the planet to the biggest New Year´s Open-Air Party. Last year more than one million people celebrated New Year’s Eve here together. You can already imagine the impressive atmosphere which is in the air. New Year’s Eve parties at home are completely old-fashioned. Berlin will show you how to party and enjoy life. The two kilometres party will be extended over the area from the Brandenburger Tor, passing the famous street Strasse des 17.Juni till the Siegessäule (Berlin Victory Column).

You will be pampered with all the culinary delights of the world. And of course, you won’t die of thirst.
But that’s not all. The Germans know how to begin a new year in a very spectacular way, because at midnight Berlin’s sky will be converted into a sea of lights, colourful pyrotechnical figures similar to real works of art. This special moment of “3, 2, 1…Happy New Year!!!” will be celebrated with breathtaking fireworks which guarantees you strong and emotional feelings. But that won’t be the final act of the evening, because after midnight the open-end party goes on until the morning so that you start the year with a very authentic hang-over.
But before the party can get started, the people of Berlin will demonstrate their social commitment and organize the traditional New Year’s run (Silvesterlauf des SCC Berlin). Whether you are old or young, just about everyone can participate in this event divided into different runs depending on the age and level of difficulty. Entertainment, sport and fun, what else do you want?
