The second most populous country in Europe, Germany needs little introduction. Deutschland as its natives call it, invites Auslanders (or foreigners) with open arms, full kegs of beer and over 1000 different kinds of sausages. Did you know that Germans are the second largest beer consumers in the world? Germany’s contribution to the world goes beyond its scientific discoveries – we have the Germans to thank for some essential everyday inventions – including coffee filters, adhesive tape, electric drills, taxi meters and the Christmas tree.
The Engine of the European Union Rolls on all Cylinders
Germany, boasting the largest economy in the EU put into effect progressive immigration regimes over the last decade to maintain its economic engine. This included its Skilled Worker Immigration Act at the dawn of 2020. Thanks to a shrinking labor force, the country is once again tasked with supplanting its working population that is predicted to fall by 6 million by 2035, and hence primed for skilled talent to occupy vacancies. For remote workers and digital nomads that are considering Germany as a home base, this can be a very opportune time.
Berlin Consistently Attracts World Class Talent in the Tech-Space
Needless to say, Europe’s industrial powerhouse, Germany, is fast becoming the region’s startup hub too. Berlin was ranked not only Germany’s but Europe’s top city for startups with investors pouring in over five billion euros into Berlin startups in 2021 alone.
