What does #WunderbarTogether Mean to You?
September 3, 2019
At this year’s Federal Government Open House in Berlin, more than 12,000 visitors were able to tour the German Foreign Office’s headquarters in central Berlin, attend a forum with Foreign Minister Heiko Maas, and take part in fun activities related to foreign policy.
Wunderbar Together was also on-hand to discuss German-American friendship with visitors. The highlight of the afternoon was a gravity-defying slackline by One Inch Dreams across the courtyard of the Foreign Office. The performance called back to their slackline between two hot-air balloons over Monument Valley that began the Wunderbar Together campaign a year ago.
Visitors to the Open House each wrote a note describing what #WunderbarTogether meant to them. Answers ranged from the heartwarming to the hilarious! Do you have a German-American story? Visit our homepage to tell us what #WunderbarTogether means to you!
