Eldorado for kitebuggy drivers - the huge sandbank near St. Peter-Ording/North Sea

In Germany, the "Land of Ideas", we place major emphasis on education, science, research and development. This makes Germany one of the most popular countries in which to study, as well as a site for state-of-the art research and patent development. With its high quality of life, good infrastructure and central location in Europe, Germany is one of the world's most attractive bases for business. Its beautiful urban and rural landscapes, combining age-old traditions and experimental modern culture, make a trip to Germany a unique experience.
Germany has something for everyone, so why not pay us a visit?

Farewell of our Consul General, Klaus Ranner

Dear visitors of our website, After four years in Dubai it is time for my wife and me to move on. They have been four extremely interesting, but not always easy years. At a great number of farewell events I have been told and shown by Emiratis – albeit not the official ones – and members of the German and the international community that apparently not all I have done here was wrong.

Sonnenuntergang in der Hauptstadt

Summer in Berlin

Being cool and 'in' have not been the main qualities Germans are usually credited with. Berlin, though, is a different matter: for years now, the Spree metropolis has seen a constant influx of creative workers, artists, scientists and academics from across the globe. Especially in summer, when young people flock to Berlin from all over the world.
