The ‘Deutsch-Türkische Jugendbrücke’ project promotes cultural exchange between young people in Germany and Turkey. The young people at the event took great pride and joy in presenting the projects they had worked on together. The impressive venue was the summer residence of the German ambassador by the Bosporus. This prestigious building dates from the time of Kaiser Wilhelm II. The interior was completely redesigned – the first time this had been done for such an event – to accommodate the opening ceremony with its panel discussion, entertainment programme and technical installations.
All in all, it was a fabulous event featuring a cheerful Foreign Minister Dr Frank-Walter Steinmeier and lots of happy guests!
