Chinese New Year Festival

Come join us in our Chinese New Year Celebrations in Berlin from 1st to 3rd February 2018.

2018 is the 46th anniversary of establishing diplomatic relations between Germany and China. The Chinese New Year Celebrations thus mark the beginning of an exciting political and cultural year.

We welcome artists and craftsmen from the Jiangsu Province north of Shanghai here in Berlin. They have created a stage programme involving music, dance, acrobatics and traditional craftsmanship, which, just like in previous years, will be sure to attract thousands of visitors once again.

The opening act on February 1st 2018 (from 7 pm) will be a laser and fire show. While the fireworks will be launched from a skyscraper at Potsdamer Platz, the laser show will be projected onto its facade.

The Chinese New Year has traditionally fallen on a new moon between January 21st and February 21st. Due to schedule constraints, the festivities in Berlin 2018 are taking place earlier.
