Trick Or Treat!

Where Berlin - - Sight Seeing -

If your sweet tooth isn’t quite sat­is­fied by Ger­man candy, high­tail it out to the south­west­ern dis­trict of Zehlen­dorf on Hal­loween. Near U-Bahn sta­tion OskarHe­lene-Heim is for­mer U.S. Army hous­ing that is still home to a com­mu­nity of Americans and has be­come ground zero for trick or treat­ing in Berlin. Even the Ger­man neigh­bors, for­merly dis­mis­sive of the cus­tom, are happy to hand out real Amer­i­can sweets on All Hal­lows’ Eve, and there aren’t too many places in the city where this is the case. For even more Hal­loween fes­tiv­i­ties, check out the Botan­i­cal Gar­dens just down the road (Köni­gin-Luise-Str. 6-8, www.bgbm.de). Inside the lush grounds, the spook­i­est day of the year is cause for a fam­ily-friendly cel­e­bra­tion that in­cludes scary sto­ries, chil­dren’s theater, crafts, games, face paint­ing, and lots of pump­kin. This year’s fes­tiv­i­ties will take place on 26 Oc­to­ber from 11am un­til 6pm.
