Berlin Church Bells Ring in New Year

Germans celebrated 2021 with firework displays across Berlin in the early hours of January 1, as church bells rang out after midnight.

This footage, taken in the Charlottenburg area of the German Capital, shows fireworks exploding above the rooftops of homes, against a backdrop of church bells.

Though local authorities banned the use of fireworks in dozens of places in the city, firefighters were planning as other years. Credit: Jeffery Berlin Green via Storyful
