For the last 13 years, the organisation Liebet Eure Feinde (Love your Enemy) – with the support of Freunde des Mauerparks e.V., the local authority, numerous artists and residents – have worked to make a Walpurgis Night celebration that is creative and peaceful.

The slogan for the celebrations is quite simple: come and join in!

The following artists and projects are supporting us: Peter & PatTeam-FoxFire CirclesDub der Guten HoffnungJohanna Zeul12 VoltThe OneWoman Company, u.v.m.

Film by Denis Martens – Walpurgisnacht 2013

The police and local authority have given us permission for a supervised fire. Please treat the fire and the fire artists with respect and keep a safe distance. No other fires are allowed to prevent damage to the park’s grass, which is already under stress.

At 7.00 pm we will express our hopes and wishes for peace in the form an interfaith prayer. Everyone of any faith is welcome to join in.

Our celebrations will end at midnight. After 1.00 am, please spare a thought for the people who live near the park and would like to get a good night’s sleep!

We look forward to enjoying a peaceful Walpurgis celebration with you.

Celebrating New Year’s Eve in the Mauerpark

von Mauerpark Redaktion am 31. December 2015

sylvester_DSC_4578

2015 was a turbulent year for the Mauerpark and 2016 will no doubt also have a few surprises in store.

We have just one request to everyone who is thinking of coming to the Mauerpark to see in the New Year:

Please spare a thought for the wildlife in the park and celebrate without bangers and rockets. A lot of animals live in the Mauerpark and the noise, smoke and flashes of fireworks are terrifying for them. The park is one of the very few safe places for them to seek refuge in the city. Please don’t destroy that for them.

And think of your fellow human beings too! They are not an appropriate target for home-made rockets or bangers. Have a great party and enjoy yourselves but please do not overestimate your skills in handling the fireworks. Remember they can cause serious injury – to you and others.

Please don’t litter the park. Take your empty packaging, bottles and glasses home with you.

Our motto for 2016 remains the same: Respect for one another and commitment to taking care of this precious open space in our city.
The Friends of the Mauerpark wish you fun on New Year’s Eve and all the best for 2016!

sommerfest2015-440

On Sunday, July 19, starting at 4:00 pm, Mauergarten will be hosting a party to celebrate both the summer and Mauergarten’s two-year birthday.

The Mauergarteners will be eating, drinking, and sitting on cozy new furniture, decorating the garden with color, playing games, presenting their new cookbook (fresh from the printer!), and doing a summer swap: bring something from home that you want to give away; you will be randomly assigned another Mauergartener with whom you’ll trade gifts!

All musicians with instruments and inspiration, music and music stands are also welcome. Bring plates, cups, and eating utensils, refreshments to eat and drink, and blankets to sit on!
