Germany: the heart of Europe

Germany or the Federal Republic of Germany is a country on the European continent. It is a federal parliamentary republic divided into 16 federal states, and its capital is Berlin.

Germany has a territory of 357,376 km2. It is bordered to the north by the North Sea, the Baltic Sea and Denmark, to the east by Poland and the Czech Republic, to the south by Austria and Switzerland, and to the west by Luxembourg, France, the Netherlands and Belgium. 

On the other hand, the term Germanic, which is currently used to designate the people who live in this country, derives from the Roman expression that referred to people who were not from the Empire but belonged to the surrounding tribes. Later, in around the 10th century, the Romans occupied part of German territory.  

Population of Germany

Germany is the most populous country in the European Union, with just over 82.2 million inhabitants.

Despite this population, the birth rate is low: only 1.4 children per woman. Consequently, its inhabitants are mostly adults (66.1 per cent), with fewer elderly (20.6 per cent) and even fewer young people (13.3 per cent).

This generally indicates good health care, a high level of education and a long life expectancy.

The language spoken is German, with the second language spoken being English and the third being French. Other minority native languages are Danish, Sorbian, Romany and Frisian.


German culture

Among the country’s outstanding historical personalities are Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Nicolaus Copernicus who, although not strictly speaking German, did share the same German cultural and intellectual traditions.

This country was home to great and important artistic movements such as the Renaissance, Gothic and Baroque movements.

As for its gastronomy, sausage, pretzel and beer are some of its most traditional icons.  



Germany's gastronomy stands out because of its variety of dishes and the combinations that arise in its various cities and places, which are influenced by the cultures of neighbouring countries, such as French, Dutch, Scandinavian or Swiss cuisine. The main ingredients include meats, sausages and sauces. In terms of beverages, the country boasts outstanding wines and beers.
