After the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall today, Germany's capital is preparing to relive the nation's Brazil 2014 triumph.

The 90-minute long movie gets its premiere when the behind-the-scenes story of Germany's fourth World Cup triumph is told.

Earlier on Monday, the 23-man squad, who clinched the title in Brazil, will receive the Silver Laurel Leaf — the country's top award for sports success — from president Joachim Gauck at his Schloss Bellevue residence.

Loew's squad will also receive their official World Cup winners badge from FIFA which they will wear for their Euro 2016 qualifier against Gibraltar on November 14 and away friendly in Spain four days later.
