The third of October is the Day of German Unity, celebrated as German National Day. We celebrate in commemoration of the anniversary of the German reunification in 1990. This day celebrates a reunited Germany, reunited families, reunited culture and 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 colours of the German flag in a display of lights. Do you celebrate German Unity Day on this side of the world? Show us your photos, share your best pictures of the lit-up bridges on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter with the hashtag #brisbanegermanweek #BGW18.
Our reception will be held next Thursday at Porsche Centre Brisbane. Please see 11 October in the schedule for details.
Today we have organised for a tour through Government House with a German taste to it. Founder and builder of Government House was a Consul named Heussler. He gave it the name of ‘Fernberg’ (distant mountain). Join us and members of the German Language Roundtable as we look into Fernberg’s German history.
