Neues Palais (Park Sanssouci) in Potsdam

Welcome to Germany!

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?

Twenty-five years of German unity. 3 October 2015 is an occasion for us Germans to celebrate, but also to look back with gratitude.Back when the Helsinki Final Act was signed 40 years ago, we Germans and our neighbours were already witnessing the advent of a new era in European relations. Together we hoped for stability and peace. The process of détente between East and West paved the way towards ending the Cold War.
