Celebrating New Year’s Eve in the Mauerpark

Celebrating New Year’s Eve in the Mauerpark

2018 was a turbulent year for the Mauerpark and 2019 will no doubt also have a few surprises in store.

It took refugees from Syria, Africa, America and Germany just one week to construct the first two elements of the Rainbow Playground.
