Berlin, capital of Germany and urban hub since the 13th-century, has emerged as a hip, youthful, and energetic metropolis. It’s a place with a rich and tumultuous history that evolved into the most vibrant and exciting city in Europe. It is not only known for its cutting-edge contemporary art, and architecture, but also for its burlesque shows, decadent parties and underground clubs. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that it’s also one of the best places to spend New Year’s Eve. In an explosion of energy, debauchery and diversity, the city’s ‘anything-goes’ attitude takes hold of the New Year and fireworks light up the evening for an unforgettable night. But don’t take our word for it – join us and find out yourself!
