Before, he met with a group of officers from the German Federal Army to discuss migration policy and German-Turkish relations.

While in Hamburg, Gerald had meetings at the ministries for domestic and social affairs, and visited the aid organisation Hanseatic Help, as well as Hamburgs first reception service Zentrale Erstaufnahme (ZEA) for refugees.
