thread NYE in Berlin is unbelievable.
It's like a war zone from midnight to 3am with constant fireworks. This/last year I was stood outside a bar for about half an hour while fireworks were set off in the road. A taxi drove up, saw all the fireworks going off in front of him... and simply drove around them.

My cousin lives in Kreuzberg, says the fireworks display from Tempelhof is great, and then adds, somewhat ominously, '...I have a launching pad for rockets on my balcony...'
permalink Actually, here's a thing.
I'm trying to find out if the Berlin State Library is open over the NYE weekend. Bit of a long shot I know, but it features in one of my all time favourite films - Wings of Desire - and its interior looks *magnificent*. Could you find out for me if it's open on Friday the 29th or Saturday the 30th? I'm getting nowhere. There's a beer or two in it for you!
