The German Pavilion at Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai, Japan

After the great success of the German Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, Koelnmesse GmbH is once again organising and running the German contribution at a world exhibition. The decision on the concept for the exhibition and the design of the pavilion will be made by summer 2023.

The team behind the German Pavilion

On behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action, Koelnmesse GmbH is once again responsible for organizing and running the German Pavilion at Expo 2025 in Osaka. The concept, planning and realization of the German Pavilion will be handled by the "German Pavilion Expo 2025 Osaka Consortium", which will also be responsible for the construction of the pavilion together with an architectural firm. A cultural agency and a restaurant operator will be added at a later date.
