The way Germany’s Traditions and Customs have shaped its international image and secured its position as one of the world’s top travel destinations, is the subject of the GNTB’s worldwide campaign for 2015. Using the three aspects of “Culinary Germany”, “Living traditions” and “Arts and Crafts”, the campaign will link the positive, modern image of Germany as a travel destination with authentic living traditions and how they are embedded in contemporary society. The aim of the campaign is to bring to life the brand “Destination Germany”.

600 anni dal Concilio di Costanza

Il Concilio di Costanza, considerato il più grande convegno di uomini di chiesa, politici e scienziati del Medioevo, influì in modo decisivo sullo sviluppo della storia europea. I rappresentanti della chiesa si riunirono a Costanza dal 1414 al 1418 per discutere sul futuro della chiesa cattolica, allora divisa, e per eleggere un nuovo Papa. Gli accordi rappresentarono il fondamento dei successivi sviluppi della chiesa di Roma. L'evento offre alla città di Costanza l'occasione per dare il via ai festeggiamenti per il sesto centenario, nel 2014.
