It's your chance to leave your mark on this historic occasion!


The German Embassy in Vietnam is delighted to announce an exciting competition with valuable prizes.

The winning logo will become a symbol of the strong diplomatic relations between our two countries. It will be featured prominently at events, on print publications, souvenirs, websites, and social media platforms. We are looking for a design that captures the essence of cultural exchange, people-to-people diplomacy, and the rich traditions of both nations.

The Embassy encourages creativity and uniqueness in the logo designs. While the main color should reflect the colors of the German and Vietnamese flags, the number “50” should be a prominent feature. We are seeking a logo that is not only eye-catching but also has a positive and lasting impact. It should be instantly recognizable, with a concise and memorable design that utilizes striking colors and shapes effectively.

This competition is open to all professional and amateur designers, artists, design studios, organizations, groups, and individuals above the age of 18. Show off your talent and contribute to celebrating the strong bond between Germany and Vietnam! Simply send your entries to [email protected] before August 15, 2024. Let your creativity flow and be a part of this historic commemoration.

Oktoberfest in Vietnam is a fantastic opportunity for cultural exchange and a celebration of the vibrant relationship between Germany and Vietnam.

As we approach the anniversary milestones, it is important to acknowledge the diverse and robust nature of the Germany-Vietnam relationship. According to Dr. Guido Hildner, Ambassador of Germany to Vietnam, the two countries have fostered a strong connection that spans across politics, business, development, culture, education, and science. The mutual interests and complementary strengths of our nations have led to a dynamic and enduring partnership.

Ambassador Hildner also emphasizes the vital role of people-to-people connections in international relations. He believes that the relationship between countries is not solely determined by governments but is deeply influenced and enriched by the interactions and exchanges between their citizens. It is through these personal connections that the true essence of diplomacy comes to life, infusing vitality, durability, and depth into the fabric of our nations’ friendship.
