The 2015 German Festival will be organized in Hanoi this weekend to celebrate 40 years of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and Germany.

The event will gather German organizations and enterprises, the German Embassy said Wednesday in a press release. It is aimed at reflecting the close relations between Vietnam and Germany and create chances for visitors to exchange with enterprises and German political and cultural organizations.

The fest is also intended to provide knowledge of the operation of German firms in Vietnam as well as more information about the European country, the embassy said.

The 2015 German Festival will feature cuisine, music, lectures, workshops, and games.

German band Raggabund will also perform at the event before giving more performances around Vietnam.

The opening ceremony at 12:10 pm will have the participation of Prof. Dr. Norbert Lammert, President of the Bundestag, which is the German constitutional and legislative body, and Vietnamese Deputy Minister of Culture, Sports, and Tourism Dang Thi Bich Lien.
