Celebration joy throughout the weekend

The Bergmannstraßenfest takes place on Fridays to Sundays and transforms the otherwise quite lively neighborhood into a boisterous music mile: On Friday the bands and artists play from 4 to 10 pm, at an advanced hour the Berlin night must be observed in the residential area. On Saturday and Sunday, there will finally be no stopping from 11 am to 10 pm - young and old will meet at the colorful booths.

The public transport is very well developed, you can easily reach the festival location by subway or bus lines 248, N42, N6, M19 and 140. From the subway stations Mehringdamm (U6 and U7), Gneisenaustrasse (U7) and Platz der Airlift (U6) is only a short walk to the festival. As a car driver, you have to adjust to a shortage of parking spaces and blockades of the roads in the area during the three days. Traveling by public transport is therefore recommended.
