Anything I need to know about the night before going?

Gates open at 2pm with the entertainment starting at 7pm and running through to 3am with fireworks, as you would expect at midnight.

If you haven’t been to Berlin at this time of the year before, it’s worth noting that it can be particularly chilly, especially in the small hours so make sure that you wrap up warm and don’t forget your hat, scarf & gloves.
