Welcome to Young Germany!

Young Germany debuted in 2005 at the Frankfurt Book Fair.  Since then we have been providing information about career, education, and lifestyle for German-o-philes around the world.  Thinking about studying here?  Interested in fashion?  Looking for a career in the sciences?  We’ve got it all.  The new site will help you to study, work, live, play, and focus in Germany.  We can even help you find an apartment.

If it is interaction you crave, then visit our facebook page, where we post about every aspect of German culture, discuss current events, share photos, and even occasionally offer some practice speaking auf Deutsch. Of course, if facebook is too longwinded for you, you can also find us tweeting at @young_germany.

Or would you prefer a more personal look at life in Germany?  On our blog you can find first-hand anecdotes from expats who have been there, as well as photos and wrap ups of current events.  (And psst, we’re always looking for new guest bloggers.)

Why is Young Germany in English?

This is a question we get a lot, and it goes back to our mission.  We want to provide information about Germany to young people around the world.  We want people who have just started learning German to have access to information as much as we want those already fluent to have access.  Never even considered learning German or visiting Germany?  We want to be able to convince you, and so we have chosen English in order to make the site accessible to as many people as possible.

Who is Young Germany?

Young Germany is a joint project of Auswärtiges Amt (Federal Foreign Office) and Frankfurter-Societäts Medien.  A small team of dynamic young writers and editors work behind the scenes to keep up-to-date information on your virtual doorstep.
