In Berlin, each year thousands of people head to Kreuzberg on Labour day, to celebrate the 1st of May. Read here about the legendary Myfest.
The 1st of May is an official bank holiday in Germany, and in many cities people go out and celebrate Labour Day in one way or the other. In Berlin, there are many celebrations, the trade unions address the workers, and in Kreuzberg there are political demonstrations.
In recent years, more and more people came together in Kreuzberg to protest but also to celebrate. And with the Myfest there is basically a whole festival taking place on the day – with concerts, hiphop acts, comedy, different stages, picknicking families, and loads of street food and drinks!
So, what better way to start the month of May than celebrating spring in Kreuzberg?
