For 28 years, the Berlin Wall kept east and west Berlin and, by extension, Germany, separate. The wall finally came down in November 1989 and was cause for massive celebrations.
Now, 30 years later, the city is celebrating the anniversary with a number of events and festivities. It is the perfect time to plan a trip to Berlin with the entire family. Whether your family loves museums, music or other festivals, there is something going on in Berlin in 2019 and beyond.
The biggest and most historically relevant event going on to commemorate the fall of the wall is a weeklong festival that will transform the city into an open-air art show and festival. Nov. 4–10 will see the city play host to the biggest celebration it has ever seen.
During the week, large-scale presentations of historical photographs and films will be presented on projectors around the city. Visitors will also be invited to experience the “peaceful revolution” firsthand at a number of sites recreating the sights and sounds of the night the wall came down.
The festival culminates with a giant concert on the night of Nov. 9. Dozens of musicians will take to the stage all over the city as the weeklong celebration comes to an end in a giant party marking 30 years since the fall of the wall.
If live festivals and art exhibitions aren’t your favorite, the city has plenty more to offer visitors, as 2019 looks to be a year of continued celebration and remembrance in more ways than the celebration of the 30th anniversary. This year is also The Bauhaus Centenary. The university was closed by National Socialists in 1933. In its 14 years of operation, the Bauhaus was influential. There are events scheduled all year to celebrate the centenary.
