Yes, it's Valentine's Day (Valentinstag) in Germany too. And contrary to popular believes, Germans are actually quite romantic. But unlike English speaking countries and France, we have not been celebrating it in a commercial way for a very long time.
It doesn't stop with heart shaped cards, red roses and chocolates though. Zoo Cologne, Germany, is running “Tour D’Amour” this Valentine’s Day, promoted in a series of posters with romantically inclined animals, a gorilla, owl and camel. “Visit the Tour D’Amour at Valentine’s Day”.
Even the animals get romantic...
The Tour D’Amour campaign was developed at Preuss und Preuss, Berlin, by creative director/copywriter Michael Preuss, art director Zuzana Havelcova, graphic designer Denis Junemann, consultants Nina Preuss and Janina Gutermann.
