Inspiration from the locals on how to enjoy a Berlin Halloween whether you’re a child or an adult
Witches, ghosts, zombies and other creatures of magic and mystery prepare for a night of spooky fun in the world of the living.
Why not spend it in Berlin, the world centre of night clubs, great parties and good vibes.
Read on to find out where children can have their fun in the early hours of the evening, and where the adults will gather in the depths of the cold autumn night to party with those creatures of mystery and magic.
Ideas for kids during a Berlin Halloween:
1. Pumpkin carving!
All of the supermarkets (Kaiser’s, Lidl, Aldi, etc.) and fresh produce stores are selling pumpkins, perfect to make your own jack-o-lanterns in Berlin. Here’s a link on how to make them, and it also shows what foods you can make with the insides of the pumpkin that you carve out, so nothing is wasted!
You can do this and the next idea outdoors! To get an idea of places to do this, take a local tour with us and find out the best places for outdoor activities, while sightseeing and tasting local dishes!
Head out to a craft store and pick up some coloured paper, pencils, scissors and string. Draw an outline of a face sized circle, or something like a wolf face if you’re a creative parent, then cut out.
Be sure to cut out eye holes and mouth holes, then two tiny holes on the sides just below eye level and tie a short string to each one. This will hold the mask in place.
Botanischer Garten and Botanischen Museum hold kids Halloween day on the 30th of October, 2016. This involves horror stories for children, craft, drawing, painting, playing, pumpkin dishes and candy! This begins at 11 am:
Botanischer Garten / Botanisches Museum Berlin
Königin-Luise-Str. 6-8, 14195 Berlin ZEHLENDORF
