May Day

If you’re not sure why you’re off work on Tuesday, we’re here to help you out. The first of May, or better known as May Day, is the dedicated day to celebrate workers’ rights. Aside from not being able to grocery shop, you may be wondering what else is going on in Berlin on the day.

Since the late 80’s, a street fair has been hosted in the district of Kreuzberg on May 1st. Originally organized by leftist and occasionally leading to fights and fires, the festival is now open to all and usually the only fire involved is used to cook food. Head to Mariannenplatz and walk in either direction to enjoy eats, drinks, music, games and more.

In addition to the street fair, there will be several open air parties and outdoor activities. For more events, check out the Calendar of Events on our homepage. Grab a group of friends, hit the streets and explore the best of what Berlin has to offer. Insider tip: stay until 10:30 to catch the fireworks. We’ll see you there!
