Berliners know how to put on a good party, as evidenced way back by the decadence of the Golden Twenties to the now defunct Love Parade techno festival to today's hipster clubs, bars and lounges attracting international hedonists. New Year's Eve is no exception. Silvester, as it is called in German, offers endless possibilities in this creative metropolis. Celebrate with a crowd of roughly two million revelers at Germany's largest open-air New Year's Eve event in front of iconic Brandenburg Gate. Count on loads of champers, rowdy fun, music acts, light shows and, of course, fireworks at midnight. If you don't want to mingle with the masses in the cold, Berlin hosts plenty of indoor parties, from cruises to restaurants serving special dinner menus. If you feel like exerting yourself in a different way, take part in the 38th Berlin New Year's Eve Run 2013, a race through Berlin's idyllic Grünewald forest.
