“Karneval der Kulturen”: Kreuzberg invites You to yet another Street Festival

On the weekend of Pentecost every year, Kreuzberg comes out in full color with the “Karneval der Kulturen” celebration. Since the mid-1960s, Berlin’s growing multiculturalism has been celebrated through these four days of open-air music, dancing, and parading. The main parade, with 73 national groups participating, will take place on Sunday, starting from Hermannplatz at 12:30pm, and then heading in the direction of Yorckstrasse.

For the celebration closest to the residence—the Eurasian stage—head to Blücherplatz. For the full program, see here.

Please note that due to the size of the event, festival organizers advise against riding bicycles into the central areas of the festival. It is also likely that U-Bahn stations on the U7 and U8 will be closed during peak hours to avoid overcrowding.
