Silvester (New Year's Eve) Celebrations in Berlin 2013

The year is almost over, and I'm going to miss yet another New Year's Eve (Silvester) celebration in Berlin. However, for those of you lucky enough to be in Berlin for Silvester, here are a few suggestions to while away the last hours of 2012. 

With over a million people, the Silvester celebration on the Straße des 17. Juni (17th of June Street) near the Siegessäule claims to be the biggest New Year's Eve party in the worldLive bands, light and laser shows, visual media, countless places to enjoy food and drink, and of course, a huge firework display, make this venue the place to be on New Year's Eve. Known as the Partymeile (Party mile), this mile long outdoor event has bars galore, international food stalls, music performances, and plenty of dance floors.

For those of you that want to celebrate New Year's in a unique fashion, there's Bohème Sauvage at the Wintergarten. This 1920s style theme party features period music and food. Get dressed in vintage 1920s clothing, dance the Charleston, drink a little Absinthe, play poker, and enjoy a stage show. Life is a Cabaret at the Wintergarten. 

For dance enthusiasts, the Kulturbrauerei has a Silvester Party featuring 15 dance floors. Whatever your musical taste, you'll find something at the largest indoor party in Berlin: Rock, pop, dance classics, R & B, House, and Electro.

Finally, celebrate Silvester with a concert at Charlottenburg Palace. The Beliner Residenzorcheser will perform Mozart, Strauss, and others. This baroque palace serves as a backdrop for the orchestra who will be dressed in traditional costumes.
