The third of October is the Day of German Unity, celebrated as the German National Day. The significance of this day is clear: A reunited Germany, reunited families, reunited culture. This day is celebrated as a commemoration of the anniversary of the German reunification in 1990. Berlin was once again designated as the capital of united Germany. In recognition of this day, Brisbane’s iconic bridges, Story Bridge and Victoria Bridge, will show the colors of the German flag in a display of lights today (6.00-9.00pm).
Show us how you celebrate the German Unity Day! Share your favourite pictures of the lit-up bridges on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter with the hashtag #brisbanegermanweek – your photos will appear under ‘Go Social’ on our website!
