Expo 2019 Beijing held its first country-specific themed event, Germany Day, on Monday. 

Since its opening, the Germany Pavilion has been one of the most popular pavilions in the expo park, with visitors swarming in every day. In the pavilion, not only can visitors interact with hosts dressed up as flower elves and tree elves, but they also receive bags of flower seeds, peruse Germany's unique Schreiber Garden, and sample the authentic Munich Royal Beer.

At the entrance to the Germany Pavilion are statues of giant pandas and Germany's favorite little bears, looking cute and lovely. They are wearing the Chinese national flag and the German flag, symbolizing Sino-German friendship. 

The main body of the pavilion is covered by transparent glass. The wooden wall decorated with plants and flowers looks like a green screen, perfectly integrating the garden landscape and the building. 

With the design theme of "seeding the future," the pavilion looks like a leaf falling from the tree, implying vitality. The pavilion has a total exhibition area of 2,016 square meters, including two floors of indoor space covering 425 square meters. 

In each area in front of the pavilion, there are various horticultural plants standing vertically along the outer wall. Within the pavilion are insect hotels, hives, water recycling, and forest ecosystems, conveying the message that people should embrace green living and create a healthier and better modern city life.

Touring through the indoor exhibition area, visitors might understand how Germany managed to transform from a country founded on heavy industries to an eco-friendly role model. It opens a window for viewers to experience Germany's past since 1960 and imagine its captivating future in 2060. 

Following this theme, the exhibits here include rain boots made from corn, chairs made from birch barks, and flower pots crafted with sunflower seeds. Along with other everyday items made from natural or renewable materials, the notion of pursuing a green life is strongly reflected. Further inside, visitors can find restaurants, Beer Garden, Kids' Corner, as well as an eye-catching tree hanging number-shaped ornament. 

During the expo,the Germany Pavilion will host an array of activities to spark visitor's interest and build up the profile of its horticulture industry, in addition to showcasing its latest horticultural products and techniques. 

Moreover, the ideas of roof garden and urban beekeeping are proposed as an emerging trend in the development of urban horticulture, highlighting the crucial roles of beekeepers and introducing the world of apiculture to the public.
