Why locals love it

Every year on Pentecostal weekend (May/June) Berlin's largest street party goes down in the heart of Kreuzberg on multiple stages. Most people come to see the parade going from Hermannplatz to the end of Yorckstrasse. Cultural organisations showcase music and dance performances on lavishly decorated trucks.

Why you should visit it

Depending on the weather more than a million people celebrate the beginning of summer by turning the streets of Kreuzberg into one big party. Enjoy a chilled drink from the countless vendors, while watching the manifold exotic dance shows from all over the world; and join in where you like. Then take that energy into the night.

Special tip

ALL local businesses and even neighbors in adjacent roads serve caipirinhas. Before inevitable cueing, check how generous they serve.

One of the most colourful carnival I have ever seen. Music, families, neighbours are all together to celebrate diversity.
