"Horrific news from Manchester! Our thoughts are with our British friends. United we stand," German foreign minister Sigmar Gabriel said in a tweet.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel expressed her "sorrow and horror" over the bomb attack in Manchester, vowing that Germany will stand by Britain in the fight against terror.
"This suspected terrorist attack will only strengthen our resolve to work with our British friends against those who plan and execute such inhuman acts. I assure the people in Britain: Germany stands by your side," she said in a statement.
It is the second time this year the landmark has been illuminated with blue, red and white, after it was similarly illuminated in solidarity with London following the Westminster terrorist attack.
