St. Patrick's Day in Berlin
17 March 2020
On St. Patrick's Day, Berliners and Irishmen celebrate the Irish National Holiday in Irish pubs all over Berlin.
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.

The "Global Greening" project, which lets many sights and attractions all over the world take on a green glow, is supported by Tourism Ireland.
