Celebrate Germany Unity Day in MarbellaOctober 3rd 2020 | by José Naranjo
Today is celebrated Germany Unity Day (Tag der Deutschen Einheit), the national day of the German country. The signing of the reunification contract by the governments of the Federal Republic of Germany and the German Democratic Republic is commemorated.
The reunification contract, the fall of the Berlin Wall and the Peaceful Revolution in the GDR, gave rise to the modern and civilized country that we know today.
In Marbella, it is an important date, since the German community is important both in the city and throughout the province. Only in Marbella we will find between 1,500 and 2,000 residents from this emblematic country.
Due to the current situation, the events planned to commemorate this important day in Marbella have been suspended. Only the flag raising will be carried out.
Why do Germans love Marbella?
Germans love Marbella, something that we can see due to the large number of tourists who visit us every year. But in addition to this, the German community represents an important part of the population of Marbella and the Costa del Sol.
The population from Germany is the sixth largest community in Marbella. In 2019 was recorded the best historical data for German tourism on the Costa del Sol, with an expenditure of more than 1,100 million euros.
The moderate temperatures throughout the year and the lack of rainfall are the main claim. German tourists enjoy 300 days of sunshine a year to enjoy outdoor life. Whether enjoying your own garden, playing golf, strolling along the beach or tasting delicious fresh fish with a local wine…
Origin of German tourism on the Costa del Sol
Since Lufthansa created the first regular flight between Frankfurt and Malaga, Germans have fallen in love with the Costa del Sol. Love at first sight! Since then, Marbella and the Costa del Sol have become a preferred destination for our Teutonic friends.
Since then, the settlement of the German community has been “in crescendo”. This has been reflected in the creation of media and teaching institutions in German.
Media in German on the Costa del Sol:
The appearance of the German press greatly contributes to the growth of the community. Some German media on the Costa del Sol:
German school on the Costa del Sol
The Deutsche Schule, considered one of the best German schools in the world, is also one of the important claims. Those couples or families who wish to settle on the Costa del Sol positively an education in German for their children.
