On September 28th / 29th we will go on our “German Heritage Tour” to visit the well-known and less well-known German landmarks in Vancouver. , Our partner BMW provides us and our guests with their electric and hybrid vehicles with chauffeurs. If you would like to be part of this trip as a passenger in one of the cars, you can register by September 20th at ku-s1@vanc.diplo.de. The number of guests is limited. But you can also join us directly at the respective meeting points.

The event takes place in any weather. We adhere to the applicable B.C. COVID protocol. By order of the Provincial Health Officer (PHO), proof of double COVID vaccination will be required to access this event. We will therefore have to ask you to register and to show your proof of vaccination and valid government ID at the event!

The “Western Tour” starts on September 28th at 9am at the German Consulate General on Canada Place and leads via the “(blue) Drop” at the Convention Center, the Roedde Museum, the David Oppenheimer statue in Stanley Park to the “German Friendship Globe” in West Vancouver on Dundarave Beach. A small reception will take place there for invited guests.

The “Eastern Tour” starts on September 29th at 9am at the German Plaza and leads via Queen Elizabeth Square (German Fountain), the Alpen Club and St. Mark's Lutheran Church to Surrey and the “Castle” of Baron Mackensen. There is also a small closing party for invited guests there.

There will be an information and entertainment program with music, guided tours or meetings with contemporary witnesses at the various stops. Details about exact times will be communicated closer to the date.

“The Drop”, the blue steel sculpture at the Conference Center on Canada Place, is a popular instagram object. On September 28th, we want to present the best “drop selfie” there. The 1st prize is a “Together in E-Emotion” polo shirt. The closing date for entries is September 20, 2021. Please send your photos to ku-s1@vanc.diplo.de.
