Thuringia: Celebrations for the Day of German Unity continue

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.

Since the Free State holds the presidency of the Bundesrat, the main celebrations will take place in Thuringia this year under the motto "Growing together". Until Monday, the Day of German Unity, the individual federal states as well as the Bundesrat, Bundestag, federal government and Federal Constitutional Court will present themselves as part of the citizens' festival in downtown Erfurt. Numerous cultural and entertainment offers complement the information program.

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.
