St. Patrick's Day is the National Holiday of Ireland and Northern Ireland. It is celebrated in honour of Saint Patrick, a Christian missionary born in the 4th century and the primary patron saint of Ireland. Originally, St. Patrick's Day was a church celebration but it has since turned into a celebration of Irishness in many countries around the globe. Even non-Irish nationals like joining in on the celebrations that day.

Funkturm Berlin turns green

Every year, the Funkturm lights up green for Saint Patrick's Day. The "Global Greening" project, which lets many sights and attractions all over the world take on a green glow, is supported by Tourism Ireland. On St. Patrick's day, the observation platform of the 126-metre high landmark in the district of Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf is open for visitors from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m.
