German pavilions over the years

Germany has been a regular participant in world exhibitions over the years; firstly as Prussia, then as the German Empire and later as the Federal Republic of Germany. It was also one of the 33 countries to sign up to the 1928 Paris Convention, which established the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE), and has been a BIE member ever since. Germany hosted the 2000 Expo in Hanover and before that the two “specialised expos” in Berlin (1957) and Munich (1965).
