History of Germany
Located in Central Europe, Germany has been one of the powers of the world for much of its existence. Germanic tribes settled the area thousands of years ago, being a halfway point between the Nordic countries of the North, and the Roman lands in the South, although science has found that human inhabitation may have occurred there 600,000 years ago. Germany has had a history of war because of its geographic location, with many different nations fighting over the land. However, from the Protestant Reformation all the way through World War II, Germany has survived and provided the world with many enlightened minds in the fields of science, math, art, and even sports, being one of the major powers in the world in soccer.
Germany has been home to people like Martin Luther, Albert Einstein, Johannes Gutenberg, and Ludwig von Beethoven, just to name a few major contributors to world science and culture. Behind the United States, it is the 2nd most immigrated country in the world. It is also the most populated country in the European Union, which it was a founding member of in 1993. It has the 4th largest economy in the world, and is the 3rd largest importer-exporter in the world. The quality of life is very high in Germany, featuring social security, universal health care, and free university for its residents.
Many countries have items that are prohibited or restricted from being imported and exported. These items may include food, pets and medications and customs regulations are subject to change at any time. When traveling to Germany you want to be sure to research all customs regulations. This can be done with your local embassy or the country’s consulate prior to relocating. You can also visit VisaHQ.com, they offer customs regulations for numerous countries.
