Child birth & Nationality questions


Hi all, I have an interesting question which I am finding the answers quite hard to trace.

So here's my situation:

I am an Australian Citizen living in Germany through a British passpost (my Dad is British). I have a German Wife and we live in Munich. We are about to have a baby in January Protected content .

Here is my question:

Will my son hold automatic Australian and German citizenships?

I have heard that at 18 years old he must choose between being German or Australian and that is quite scary. If he chooses Australian, will he then require a VISA to live in the country he was born in?? I don't quite understand.

Can anyone assist me here?
