Fireworks lit up the night sky in Berlin, Germany, as the clock ticked over to the first hours of 2021.

Like many countries around the world, New Year’s Eve celebrations across Germany were restricted due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with bans on the use of fireworks and social gatherings in several areas. Nevertheless, fireworks were still seen in many cities.
