Erfurt (dpa/th) - The celebrations for the Day of German Unity continue in downtown Erfurt. On the second day of the celebrations, the organizers expect significantly more guests if the weather forecast improves. On the opening day of the citizens' festival in downtown Erfurt on Saturday, visitor interest was initially cautious - the reason for this was probably the rainy weather at first.
The Thuringian State Chancellery expected up to 120,000 visitors a day. Hundreds of guests are expected to attend an ecumenical service and a ceremony in Erfurt on Monday. Among others, Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier, Federal Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Bundestag President Bärbel Bas have been invited.
