You don't have to be in Poland or the Ukraine to get into to the 2012 EU Fussball Fieber ("soccer fever") - if you happen to be in Germany, the country of soccer, you should join one of the many public screenings of the 2012 EU championship. All over Germany, cafes, beer gardens, parks, and public squares become the backdrop for those gatherings, and fans come together to celebrate world-class soccer and cheer for their home team.
In Berlin, you can catch the games in the city's's offical public sceening area, on the boulevard "Straße des 17. Juni" (between Ebertstraße and Yitzhak-Rabin-Straße) - when the German team will face Italy in the semi-finals on June 28, hundreds of thousands of fans are expected to show up.
