The historical event of German reunification, where the former GDR officially joined the Federal Republic of Germany, is celebrated with a three-day festival around Brandenburg Gate and "Straße des 17. Juni". In that area, various stages host live bands and stands sell food, drinks and sweets.
The festival's entertainment programme includes activities suitable for families. Horseback riding, a big wheel that offers great views over the Tiergarten, karaoke, theatre performances, dice games, merry-go-rounds and other fairground attractions keep the whole family busy.
The fall of the Berlin Wall on the 9th of November in 1989, which marked the end of the Cold War, had paved the way for German reunification barely a year later. The Unification Treaty that was signed on the 20th of September in 1990 and declares the 3rd of October the national holiday, sealed the end of the division of Germany.
