Moving to

Germany

Through decades of experience in relocation, we have formulated the most efficient ways of properly moving you and your family to Germany. We can assist you with a safe and stress-free international move to Germany.

Culture

Culture in German states has been shaped by major intellectual and popular currents in Europe, both religious and secular. Historically, Germany has been called Das Land der Dichter und Denker (“the land of poets and thinkers”), because of the major role its writers and philosophers have played in the development of Western thought. A global opinion poll for the BBC revealed that Germany is recognised for having the most positive influence in the world in 2013 and 2014.

Geography

Germany is in Western and Central Europe, bordering Denmark to the north, Poland and the Czech Republic to the east, Austria to the southeast, and Switzerland to the south-southwest. France, Luxembourg and Belgium are situated to the west, with the Netherlands to the northwest. Germany is also bordered by the North Sea and, at the north-northeast, by the Baltic Sea. German territory covers 357,022 km2 (137,847 sq mi), consisting of 348,672 km2 (134,623 sq mi) of land and 8,350 km2 (3,224 sq mi) of water. It is the seventh largest country by area in Europe and the 62nd largest in the world.

Economy

Germany has a social market economy with a highly skilled labour force, a low level of corruption, and a high level of innovation. It is the world’s third largest exporter of goods, and has the largest national economy in Europe which is also the world’s fourth largest by nominal GDP and the fifth by PPP. Its GDP per capita measured in purchasing power standards amounts to 121% of the EU27 average (100%). The service sector contributes approximately 69% of the total GDP, industry 31%, and agriculture 1% as of 2017. The unemployment rate published by Eurostat amounts to 3.2% as of January 2020, which is the fourth-lowest in the EU.

History

Ancient humans were present in Germany at least 600,000 years ago. The first non-modern human fossil (the Neanderthal) was discovered in the Neander Valley. Similarly dated evidence of modern humans has been found in the Swabian Jura, including 42,000-year-old flutes which are the oldest musical instruments ever found, the 40,000-year-old Lion Man, and the 35,000-year-old Venus of Hohle Fels. The Nebra sky disk, created during the European Bronze Age, is attributed to a German site.

Government and politics

Germany is a federal, parliamentary, representative democratic republic. Federal legislative power is vested in the parliament consisting of the Bundestag (Federal Diet) and Bundesrat (Federal Council), which together form the legislative body. The Bundestag is elected through direct elections using the mixed-member proportional representation system. The members of the Bundesrat represent and are appointed by the governments of the sixteen federated states.

For entry into most countries, on a long-term or permanent basis, it will be necessary to have the appropriate Visa and passport requirements. You should contact the Consulate of the country to which you are relocating to ensure that your documentation is in order, and that entry of both yourself and your goods is allowed. Some countries apply strict regulations to the importing your household effects and heavy financial penalties can be applied if the appropriate Visa’s or work permits are not in place. Overseas Moving Scene cannot advise you in respect of immigration and the Consular Representative should be equipped to advise you of all documentary requirements and how to apply for appropriate Visa’s and work permits.

The varied sizes, shapes and structures of household furniture create inherent risks, and, despite our special packing materials and careful handling by our staff, these risks cannot be fully eliminated. Overseas Moving Scene has a limited liability policy which can be extended to cover wider forms of liability if required.
