New Year’s Eve: Residence ban in the Mauerpark

New Year’s Eve: Residence ban in the Mauerpark

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.

Celebrating New Year’s Eve in the Mauerpark

Celebrating New Year’s Eve in the Mauerpark

We have 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.
