Live in Germany


Germany is the most densely populated country in Europe. Covering an area of 357.340 square kilometres live 81.197.537 inhabitants ( December 2014 ). The capital of Germany is Berlin. Situated in the middle of Europe the country borders the sea in the north with adjacent proximity to Denmark and in the south the Alps with neighbouring countries Austria and Switzerland. The neighbouring countries in the west are France, Belgium and The Netherlands. In East Germany's neighbours are Poland and the Czech Republic.

Germany itself is divided into four major regions. The north, south, east and west each have special landscape characteristics but also differ in tradition, culture, architecture, food and dialect regions. Until 25 years ago, Germany was, in consequence of the 2nd World War, divided into the GDR and the FRG. Thanks to a peaceful revolution in 1989, Germany is reunited today. That might be the reason why peace and freedom is so important to many Germans.
