Open air events + festivals

As soon as Berlin is greeted by the first warm summer days, the season of festivals begins: countless parades and festivities transform Berlin's streets into a colorful party, such as the lively multicultural street festivals in Kreuzberg or the quaint neighborhood flea markets in Spandau. Almost every district of the city has its own summer festival with a local flair. The broad range of festivals guarantees that there is always something for everyone – and this doesn't only include the endless culinary possibilities.
