Parade of Torches
December 24, 2016 @ 18:00 - 23:55Free
On Christmas Eve (December 24th), a Parade of Torches will be organised for peace and tolerance for the 25th time. The first time the Parade of Torches was organised in 1922 because of the attacks on Turkish immigrants in the German city of Solingen.
Today, the Parade of Torches is a symbol of tolerance and respect for one another. The parade begins at 19.00h when the first torch is led by the World Peace Flame. Along the route, several choirs, orchestras and stands will create an atmosphere of peace and solidarity.
