Brandenburg Gate - Open Air Event

One of the largest open-air celebrations in the world takes place between the Brandeburger Tor (Brandenburg Gate) and the Siegessäule (Victory Column) on Straße des 17. Juli in Tiergarten.
This huge street party has been an 18-year long tradition in Berlin and people love being in the open air, taking advantage of the live music on three different stages, party tents, food, and drink stalls, laser shows as well as an unforgettable fireworks display above their heads.
Live music starts at 7 pm on the big stage and there are large screens all the way to the Victory Column if you find yourself not being able to get to the front. But if you get there when the main gates open at 2 pm NYE day, you can catch some of the artists rehearsing their performances for that night.
Best of all, this 2km long party is free of charge! Be warned, the place will be absolutely packed and full of happy people. More families there in the day, and dedicated party-goers when its dark. Officially party time starts after the fireworks finish at 12.30am, and there is no official closing time.
Extra Tip: There is of course security and bags are checked on entry. No Fireworks, bottles or sharp objects are allowed into the gated area.

Kuturbrauerei Berlin

The Kulturbrauerei in Prenzlauer Berg is known for some pretty cool things: The Lucia Christmas Market; the on-site movie cinema; artist spaces; independent theatre; as well as all the shops, restaurants and businesses located there. However, this huge courtyard of an old brewery, comprised of 20 connected buildings built in 1878, is most well known for its legendary New Years Eve party.
This is set to be one explosive party night this year. Three entrances to the courtyard, thirteen different dance floors held in different clubs and over 30 DJ’s. Clubs like Frannz Club, Machinenhaus, Ramba Zamba, Moon Club and Pool & Cigars all open their doors, or there is a live performance by cover band ‘Right Now’ in the Kesselhaus, plus local favourites Club 23 and the SODA Club.
The celebration at the Kulturbrauerei gives you lost of choice, many music styles in lots of locations indoor and then the outdoor courtyard for the countdown and fireworks. But the best bit is how affordable it is. Tickets are only €29 EACH! You can buy online or at any theatre ticket sales office in Germany.
One ticket for 13 clubs and everything else within the old brewery’s doors, sounds like a good deal to us!
Extra Tip: Doors open at 8 pm. Beforehand, grab a bite to eat locally in Prenzlauer Berg so you are not too far away from the action.
