"🇩🇰🇩🇪The Brandenburg Gate is one of Berlin's largest landmarks, and in Germany it is a firm tradition to visit the famous city wall during a state visit," a caption read via Instagram.
"So in connection with the Danish state visit to Germany, which began today and continues until Saturday, this afternoon, Berlin's Mayor Michael Müller accompanied Her Majesty the Queen and His Royal Highness the Crown Prince through the Brandenburg Gate and out onto Paris Platz. On this occasion, both the Queen and the Crown Prince greeted the many people who had gathered in the German capital to greet His Majesty and His Royal Highness," the message continued.
"The close relations between Denmark and Germany are marked this week, when Her Majesty the Queen and His Royal Highness the Crown Prince are on a state visit to the neighboring country," a message read. "The state visit is the Queen's outgoing number 55, and this morning it began at the Schloss Bellevue in Berlin's Tiergarten near the river Spree. Here, the President of the Federal Republic of Germany, His Excellency Frank-Walter Steinmeier, and Mrs. Elke Büdenbender welcomed the Queen and Crown Prince to Germany. In connection with the welcome, a guard of honor had been set up, which the Majesty inspected together with the President."
The note added, "Over the next few days, the state visit to Germany will include a business promotion as well as visits to a number of cultural institutions in both Berlin and the state of Bavaria, the capital of Munich. Last year, Denmark and Germany were able to celebrate the 'Danish-German Cultural Year of Friendship,' and during the state visit, agreements will be entered into within the creative educations and in the field of art and culture."
The two also got to meet with Her Excellency Chancellor Angela Merkel. "Before lunch, the Chancellor showed and told about the view of, among other things, the Reichstag building and the Berliner Fernsehturm," the note said.
The two were all smiles while posing in front of the gate.
Looks like a fun day!
