Welcome Germany! officially the Federal Republic of Germany, Deutschland, a sovereign state in central-western Europe. I can say Germany is a beautiful country as I lived in Frankfurt for five years, great time and the location gave so ability for us to travel different countries and places. So much history. Founded January 18, 1871. I can’t attest to the travel in country now, but I do know that the law enforcement there is very protective. The food is great, if you like beer, that is the place to go. Go visit and enjoy the great people there.
