During the year, the Deutsche Bundesbank celebrated its 60th anniversary in various locations with an "open day", including in the Koblenz branch. "60 years of the Bundesbank - Koblenz celebrates!", is the motto under which the central bank offered the approx. 1,500 visitors a vivid, partly playful insight into their most important tasks: for example, they displayed their monetary policy task of maintaining price stability by placing weights on a balance board.
Visitors could try out how hard it is to keep the board level. All visitors experienced a varied program with numerous hands-on activities for young and old, live music and plenty of competitions. High priority was given to the development of a sound security concept, including the necessary coordination with the security service of the Deutsche Bundesbank and the authorities responsible for security.
