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?

Inklusion in Deutschland

Germany was one of the first countries to sign the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and the Optional Protocol on 30 March 2007, ratifying it on 24 February 2009. The objective is to allow people with disabilities to participate equally in political, social, economic and cultural life, to offer them equal opportunities in education and the world of work, and to offer all citizens the chance to play their own self determined part in a barrier free society.

The Energiewende moves forward: the German Government sets out the parameters for energy and climate policy over the next few years
