Fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 – today is Tag der Deutschen Einheit (Day of German Unity or German Reunification Day). It’s Germany’s national day, celebrated annually on 3 October as a public holiday. It commemorates the anniversary of the German Reunification, which was formally completed in 1990, when the goal of a united Germany that originated in the middle of the 19th century, was fulfilled again. The name thus addresses neither the re-union nor the union, but the unity of Germany.
