But in times of physical distancing we have decided to take a more responsible path:
We are transforming Brandenburg's capital Potsdam into an open-air exhibition under the motto "30 years - 30 days - 30 x Germany" and are launching the Unity EXPO. For 30 days, federal states, constitutional organs, the commission "30 Years of Peaceful Revolution and German Unity" and other partners will present themselves with installations, exhibits or versatile "City-Cubes". In this way, the UNESCO World Heritage City, which is already well worth seeing, will be enriched by 30 attractions at a stroke.
And those who cannot come to Potsdam themselves can explore Germany digitally on this website or follow us in the social media. You can also become active at home for the Day of German Unity: With you we would like to continue the still young tradition of #Unification digging. The idea behind it? Imagine that on October 3, everyone in Germany would plant a tree. 83 million. From north to south, from east to west. For nature, the climate, for our future. All infos.
By the way: We will revolutionize the highlight of the celebrations, the official ceremony on October 3, right along with the event. We will mix performances by well-known musicians, official speeches and entertaining show and talk elements and let Anna Loos and Günther Jauch guide through the program. The ARD broadcasts the birthday celebration of German Unity live from the "Metropolis Halle". And the ecumenical service before the event is broadcast on ZDF.
2020 - without doubt a special year!
