Six cities, six unique events, from Nanjing to Shanghai – the "Germany Esplanade" will showcase Germany at its best.

Pavilions sponsored by well-known German companies such as Allianz, BASF, Deutsche Bank, DHL or Siemens will exhibit their innovations in fields such as environmental technology, energy, finance and mobility. Energy efficiency and sustainable development are just two key words that highlight opportunities for Germany and China to work together for a greener future – all presented in an entertaining multimedia exhibition on "Cities in Motion".

But Germany is more than cutting-edge technology and innovative engineering; the country is rich in art, music, lifestyle and food culture, too! Join the crowds and relax in one of the German-style beer and wine gardens. The "Germany Esplanade" offers a colorful variety of authentic German food.

Art lovers can stroll around works by well-known German artists. A Pop Festival featuring top musical acts from Germany and China will keep you on the dance floor.

So look out for an unprecedented cultural experience – the "Germany Esplanade" might come to your city, too!
