I haven't been, but my sis went a few years ago. I also saw it on German TV. Dress code: lithe gymstyled bodies wearing as little as possible. Has the advantage that there is nowhere to keep your wallet - thus it cannot be stolen. Essential safety device: condoms. Beware of: police trying to bust dealers and nutters using firecrackers in the crowds.
Hostels: book as soon as possible, Berlin is going to be full. Consider staying in one of the towns in the outskirts and going to Berlin on the day of the parade.
Hope this helps!
I'm a Canadian guy traveling to France this summer, and I'm going to visit a buddy in Berlin the weekend of the 14th-16th. He says this Love Parade thing is going to be amazing. I haven't done the huge drunken clubbing party thing much- should I be intimidated lol?
Is there one this year? I heard that because of the world cup and the 'lack of funds' it was cancelled this year.
get ready for some serious dance action!!!
THE LOVE PARADE IS ON!
15th July, Berlin, and there is nothing like a few thousand loved up clubbers shaking their bits and bobs in the sun.
my mates did the last one and i dont think they actually needed a bed, just somewhere to store their packs.
Keep pluggin away at the hostels and hotels, FIFA handed back some 5000 beds onto the market they couldn't sell just before the world cup started last week so there are some crazy prices, like €90 a night in some flash hotels.
the parade is still free and still top of the outdoor raves. go with some mates or alone as you will find friends along the way. remember to take some water with you to....
what do you mean you haven't done the whole "drunken clubbing party thing" much?! haha as i recall a chilly winter night a few months ago, you weren't exactly yourself when we all played spin the bottle!! hahaha!! good times....
... but yah, the Love Parade sounds pretty cool... i wish i was going!
any australians going? i'm going with with two of my housemates, my best mate and girlfriend (all aussies).... we were thinking of rockin it with a big australian contingent!
let me know! i'll be there from 13th july thursday til late monday night....
Me and my mate are going!! Should be wicked, cant wait. We are kiwis tho. Can we still join the Aussie contingent?
Okay I know its all done, and this post should be over... BUT I just wanted to say that it was amazing! wow crazy .
