Many of those in the German capital said they had come to urge the Netherlands and France to vote against and far-right parties in upcoming elections.

“My impression is that Europe is more important now than ever. It is the only answer we have to Trump, Putin and co. It means we must now to stand together and work together,” one man said.

“I hope that Geert Wilders doesn’t win, and the Dutch want to stay in Europe. I also wish the same for France,” said another man.

In total, more than 40 cities, mostly in Germany, took part in Sunday’s pro-EU rallies. Along with Berlin, Brussels and Amsterdam also saw smaller demonstrations.
