Best time to go to Berlin

St. Patrick's Day 2020

The bars and pubs of Berlin celebrate the Irish holiday with much enthusiasm

If you happen to be in Berlin on St. Patrick's Day, you won't be disappointed. The Irish National Holiday is celebrated in Irish pubs all over Berlin, and there is even a St. Patrick's Day Parade. In the pubs and bars of the city, there's plenty of Irish live music and the national drink of Ireland- Guinness beer.

Kreuzberg hosts the St. Patrick's Day Parade, it was started by a small group of Ireland fans and Irish expats in 2011. The first parade took place around Görlitzer Park. But, since then it has turned into quite a procession. About 5,000 people march through the streets of Berlin dressed in gree, accompanied by bagpipes and other Irish music. The St.Patrick's Festival in Kreuzberg also features film screenings, sports events, and a free concert.
