I came across these photos which I believe to be a European city.
I was wondering if the knowledgable travellers of this group can name the city and who is in the uniforms (Police, Army)
I appears to be some form of occasion like a remembrance or similar. I've managed to narrow down the country to Germany given the badge on the shoulder in the second picture.

This is called a
Großer Zapfenstreich, the people on the second picture are Joachim Gauck and Ursula von der Leyen, at the time when Gauck was president and von der Leyen defense minister. It can take place on different occasions but the most common is to honor the president, now at Schloss Bellevue in Berlin. The second and third pictures were taken when Gauck left office in 2017 while the first one comes from another Großer Zapfenstreich, in Dresden.
