1000 Years Fürth

This year Fürth is celebrating more than 1000 years of history. In the year 1007 the "locum Furti" was mentioned for the first time ever. The year long celebrations started last night with a big sylvester party around the city hall. The city hall itself was the background for a large slide show about 1000 years of Fürth.

The illumination showed different aspects of Fürth: Historic events, famous persons, major companies, buildings, products produced. The 15 minutes show was really excellent. The streets were crowded with people celebrating on it.

Happy New Year!

That slide show is amazing! I wish I could have seen it. I'd like to see more pictures, if you have more.
