Posted by on August 22, 2014

The 9th of November this year marks the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

It is remarkable to see the changes the German capital has gone through durning these last decades. From a divided city to a world metropolis, cultural centre and one of the leading European cities.

 

To commemorate this happening the city of Berlin are planning various events that will take place during the weekend of the 9th of November.

One of the biggest events includes an light installation, made out of thousands of illuminated helium balloons, that will be set up were the former wall was.. making a 12km boarder through the city. If the weather allows, this installation will even be visible from space.

Other happenings includes two exhibitions, one displaying never before seen photos of every day life in DDR and the other one focusing on the mentality and life style in West Germany.
