The ceremony will take place in the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France before Kohl's remains are transported by boat on the Rhine river to the German city of Speyer where a funeral service is held at the local cathedral, with Angela Merkel, Emmanuel Macron, Bill Clinton and Jean-Claude Juncker expected to speak.
