The Klafreit Christmas Lake-Walk
Zeit & Ort
Über die Veranstaltung
+++ Please bring your own mug or Thermos +++ Due to regulations we unfortunately cannot have Glühwein +++
We did it last year and we will do it again. On popular demand.
This is a very low-threshold gathering. Just come as you are and join friends for an intimate Christmas walk at the beautiful lake area around Krumme Lanke. There are no requirements! Well, except that you bring your own mug (or Thermos) and contribute with 5,- € of your money to make this happen.
Who can come?
Everybody. Seriously. Everybody is welcome. Even your weird self, friends and irritating relatives. Parents, grandparents, grand-grandparents, are warmly welcome! Klafreit supports inter-generational equity and opposes ageism. Internationals are welcome (obviously, this description is written in English for a reason). Oh, and Germans, too! Everybody! Get the concept?
We tried this event for the first time last year in 2019 as a potluck-lunch and it was AMAZING! Anna had promised to herself that she will do this kind of Christmas community gathering every year now.
The idea is to offer people who typically are left behind around Christmas in Berlin an opportunity to come together and enjoy the feeling of connectedness and community. This doesn't mean that this is going to be a pity party or some sort of charity event. It is not-profit, though.
There are a lot of people in Berlin who confidently don't care about Christmas for many different reasons. Likewise, there are many people who do care but won't make it home for Christmas this year for many different reasons.
Every year again they must endure this black hole-period of time by the end of the year. A time where everything seems to be at a standstill, no shops open, all your friends gone with their families, and even if you just want to plunge into work to get over with it, you can't because businesses in Germany traditionally close over Christmas. So, let's just come together and collectively indulge ourselves for having been such good human beings (or at least we tried our best), ponder on this past year of 2020 (WTF?) before it ends, and warm up inside with delicious Glühwein.
What to bring when you come?
1. Please bring your ticket on your phone or printed out.
2. Please bring your own mug or Thermos to carry around with you safely while we are walking around the lake.
