The Carnival of Cultures captures the multicultural character of Berlin and has taken place in the German capital, along with its Whitsun Festival, since 1996. From 17 to 20 May 2013, it is once again bringing together music, arts and crafts and fantastic food and drink from many different countries, taking visitors on a miniature tour around the world. The highlight is the street parade on Whit Sunday that celebrates Berlin's cultural diversity with a dazzling display of dancing in traditional costumes. Other entertainment includes a fun-packed children's programme for families and numerous music events.
This fantastic event is just one of the many facets that make Berlin such a great place to visit. As well as its historical sights, Berlin features a number of museums both on Museum Island and elsewhere in the city, which reflect only a small part of creative Berlin.
