Soccer World Championship
Finally the soccer world championship is back. But still if you couldn’t afford to travel to South Africa, you can even join the world championship in Berlin via public viewing. As South Africa is in the same time zone as Germany you can watch the games without time delay. All games that will take place at 04.00 pm and 08.00 pm will be shown via public viewing in Berlin. The start is on June 11th and the final will be one month later in South Africa, which is the 11th July.
Welcome to the Fanmeile
The biggest public viewing party takes place at the “Fanmeile” in “Straße des 17. Juni”. Although the first games of the German team will be shown on a huge screen in front of “Olympia Stadion”. But from the eighth-finals it’s going on at the “Fanmeile”. Several hundred thousands of people are expected to visit.
If you prefer a more comfortable atmosphere you can experience public viewing in many Berliner bars, beach bars, restaurants, pubs and beer gardens in Berlin.
