The 3rd of October, 2020 is the ‚Tag der Deutschen Einheit‘ a public holiday where the reunification of Germany is celebrated. 2020 marks 30 years since the DDR & the BRD were brought together and became a united Germany once more. Please note that in 2020, this falls on a Saturday and as it is a public holiday all shops will be closed for the entire weekend.
30 years ago the wall which divided the city and the people of Berlin was finally brought down, reunification was able to take place – physically and in the hearts and minds of the German people. A dark period of history was finally over and this week Berlin will celebrate!
The week of 4 – 10 November marks the 30th anniversary of the Peaceful Revolution and the fall of the Berlin Wall: the capital city will be transformed into a large open-air exhibition and event location. In over two hundred events at seven original sites of the Peaceful Revolution, visitors are invited to learn, remember, debate and celebrate.
