If you spend the turn of the year in Berlin, make this night a memorable one and welcome 2014 at the buzzing New Year's Eve Party at the Brandenburg Gate. The German capital throws one of the biggest open-air parties in the world; with more than a million people swinging into the New Year, the Berlin party even tops the festivities of New York and London.
So shake off the old year and celebrate Silvester German style under the stars, with music, dancing, laser shows, and spectacular fireworks. You can celebrate all night long - the Berlin New Year's Eve Party lasts until the wee hours of the next morning
Another great (and very relaxed) New Year's Eve celebration is taking place on every German street, in every German city; join the locals who spill into the streets at midnight, bring some champagne, join the countdown, and wish a Guter Rutsch. Marvel at the many fireworks in the night sky, or shoot of your own rockets - you can buy fireworks in every German supermarket.
