Celebrating New Year’s Eve in the Mauerpark

Wednesday, 28. December 2016 um 16:33

sylvester_DSC_4578

2016 was a turbulent year for the Mauerpark and 2017 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 2017 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 2017!

walpurgis-2016-website_en

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.
