Easter in Berlin

Easter bonfires, festivals, and concerts

Due to the corona crisis, you should generally avoid private travel and visits from relatives over Easter.

Please stay at home. Only if we all restrict our social contacts for the near future can the spread of the coronavirus be stopped. We are looking forward to welcoming you back in Berlin soon, hopefully.

Tipps for Easter at home can be found in our blog.
