Germany's Great

The emotional country guide for Germany and the Germans

Written by Garry, last edited on

Germany is a great Nation. Respected, yet sometimes feared, it is also far too often underestimated. This safe haven at the heart of Europe and the EU normally has a calming effect on much of the political and cultural landscape. And it has an influence on world events in a way that is surprising to some.

Approaching twenty five years following reunification, what makes Germany great? Why are many millions of foreigners from across the globe attracted to settle here? Do Germans still resist patriotism? What makes these people lovable?

Germany’s Great is an emotional country guide that will reveal many truths and opinions. Feel free to agree or not. Feel invited to join in.

Even if many foreigners wonder whether Germans have any sense of humour, Germans love to laugh. Considering they can also be rather down-to-earth and pessimistic, that's quite a feat for the country of poets and thinkers. In fact, sensitive, deep humour has quite a long tradition in Germany.
