The Expat Germany Chapter welcomes you!

Grüß Gott and a heart-felt welcome to the InterNations community for expats in Germany! Our international network caters to your specific needs and supports you in relocating to and putting down roots in Germany. Living abroad in a foreign country is definitely a great intercultural experience, but typically brings up a lot of questions for expatriates Germany: ʺWhat is the best international school for my kids in Germany?ʺ, ʺHow do I find a job for my spouse in Hamburg?ʺ or ʺWhere in Berlin can I meet fellow expats and compatriots from my home country?” Just to name a few examples…

InterNations aim is to help you, as an expatriate, in becoming part of the Germany expat community and exploring the German way of life in all its aspects: From enjoying the traditional roast pork with Knödel to celebrating Tag der deutschen Einheit.

Next to Germany we host several more communities in Western Europe, e.g., our network of Qatar Expat. Or you might be interested in our Expats Spain community which is also fairly active.

Germany Expat Events

Enjoy the Germany Expats Living

With attractions ranging from the sublime Alpine scenery to the beaches at the North Sea and the Baltic coastlines, Germany fascinates expatriates and globetrotters of many nationalities every year. The sizable expat Germany community is, however, mostly drawn to the country by the urban growth of Berlin and its political as well as economic challenges, e.g. in the engineering sector. Whether you move to and live in Germany for professional or private reasons, you’ll surely take with you lifelong memories of great international experiences and intercultural exchange.
