One of the last days in the role of Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel was spent in France’s Beaune where she was welcomed by President Macron and large gatherings of French people who cheered and greeted her by singing.
Both leaders paid a visit to the Hospices of Beaune, which served as a hospital in the 15th century. There was a Franco-German summit in the city of Beaune dated by 1993, where French President Francois Mitterand and then-Chancellor Helmut Kohl held talks.
