Every year in spring, the Carnival of Cultures celebrates cultural diversity in Berlin. Costumes, dance, music, rituals - the carnival is a great opportunity for members of Berlin's ethnic groups to make their cultures visible and for everybody else to see and celebrate cultural diversity.

Street Parade on Sunday

Highlight of the Carnval of Cultures is usually the street parade on Pentecost Sunday in Kreuzberg where thousands of dancers, musicians and artists perform and about half a million people from all over the world line the streets. The parade starts at the corncer of Yorckstraße and Großbeerenstraße and moves east on Gneisenaustraße and Hasenheide towards Hermannplatz in Neukölln.
