The festive award ceremony took place in the Kleine Weimarhalle (Unesco-Platz 1). Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock attended the ceremony and held a short welcoming speech, just as Thuringia's Cultural Minister Benjamin-Immanuel Hoff and Peter Kleine, Mayor of the City of Weimar. 

Since 1954, the Goethe Institute has awarded the Goethe Medal annually as the most important award of the Federal Republic of Germany´s foreign cultural policy. It honours public figures from all over the world who have rendered outstanding services to international cultural exchange.
