25 years of German unity – in 2015, Germany celebrates the 25th anniversary of reunification.

The special feature on “25 years of German unity” in the issue 02/2015 of DE Magazin Deutschland and the corresponding dossier on the website do not only present background articles and interviews looking back on what has been achieved, but also and above all they focus on the present in Germany today. Prominent figures say what they associate with Germany, a reporter travels along the Elbe and explains the changes since 1990, and a walk through Berlin presents the German capital as an international laboratory of creativity.
