See Berlin's Culture

Despite having only had half a year of preparation, the first Carnival of Cultures made quite an impression on its maiden voyage on 16 May 1996. Since then crowd numbers have skyrocketed from a respectable 50,000 to over a million, and it seems that the carnival is only gaining momentum. It’s a celebration of Berlin’s cultural richness, and is open to anyone as a celebration of cultural expression; whether full-fledged, unknown, or a ethnic amalgam, all cultures are encouraged to participate. If you’re looking to get into Berlin’s cultural —and therefore multicultural—scene, then if you’re in town when the Carnival of Cultures is romping through town, you’ll certainly want to tack it onto your Berlin trip plan.
