Tag der Deutschen Einheit

Der 3. Oktober wurde als Tag der Deutschen Einheit im Einigungsvertrag 1990 zum gesetzlichen Feiertag in Deutschland bestimmt.[1] Verkürzt wird auch vom Einheitstag gesprochen.[2] Als deutscher Nationalfeiertag erinnert er an die deutsche Wiedervereinigung, die „mit dem Wirksamwerden des Beitritts der Deutschen Demokratischen Republik zur Bundesrepublik Deutschland […] am 3. Oktober 1990“[3] „vollendet“ wurde.[4] Somit wurden Brandenburg, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Sachsen, Sachsen-Anhalt und Thüringen sowie Berlin in seiner Gesamtheit die neuen Länder der Bundesrepublik Deutschland.

Als „Deutsche Einheit“ wird historisch seit dem frühen 19. Jahrhundert das Bestreben bezeichnet, die deutschen Länder in einem Staat zusammenführen, was besonders mit dem ab 1815 bestehenden Deutschen Bund populär wurde. Das Einheitsmotiv findet sich auch in der deutschen Nationalhymne als „Einigkeit“ wieder.



German Unity Day

The Day of German Unity (German: Tag der Deutschen Einheit) is the national day of Germany, celebrated on 3 October as a public holiday.[1] It commemorates the anniversary of German reunification in 1990, when the goal of a united Germany that originated in the middle of the 19th century, was fulfilled again. Therefore, the name addresses neither the re-union nor the union, but the unity of Germany. The Day of German Unity on 3 October has been the German national holiday since 1990, when the reunification was formally completed.

An alternative choice to commemorate the reunification could have been the day the Berlin Wall came down: 9 November 1989
