Fireworks can be seen on New Year's Eve at the Brandenburg Gate.

There will be a local audience, but this year there will be significantly fewer people than in other years - one figure was not mentioned. "The New Year's Eve celebration at the Brandenburg Gate is open to Berliners and guest Berliners only with valid, prior registration," it was said. When and where visitors can register is to be announced. Hundreds of thousands of people have celebrated at Germany's largest New Year's Eve party at the Brandenburg Gate in recent years.

Maximum 5000 people allowed at outdoor events

At present, however, only up to 5000 people are allowed to attend public events in the open air in Berlin due to corona conditions. This year, as in previous years, the celebration will be broadcast on television, the organizers said.
