New Year’s Eve: Residence ban in the Mauerpark

by | Dec 30, 2020 | Events, General

Dear friends of Mauerpark,

What a challenging year 2020 was. Life in Mauerpark was pretty much dominated by the corona pandemic and things were generally quieter than usual. Really wild celebrations were not possible this year and that will certainly apply to New Year’s Eve.

In an attempt to contain the pandemic, the city authorities have designated numerous no-go zones for fireworks in Berlin. They include the entire Mauerpark and adjacent streets. And, in fact, there is not just a ban on fireworks. The park is off limits all day on 31 December and 1 January. You are allowed to walk through it but not hang out.

Despite all the rules and regulations, we hope you still have fun. Take care, stay safe and celebrate at home. 

We wish you a happy, healthy New Year!
