One of the biggest New Year's Eve parties in Germany takes place at Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. Around a hundred thousand visitors are expected for the New Year celebrations in the German capital. The hours before midnight fly past thanks to live bands, DJs, laser shows and a wide selection of food and drink. And the rest of the party goes on until the early hours! The festivities extend for over two kilometres from Brandenburg Gate to the Victory Column. But if big crowds aren't your thing, you can choose to celebrate New Year in neighbouring districts such as Friedrichshain or Kreuzberg, with their many clubs and bars and excellent views of the city.
