and Social Stability

The German Reichstag is the place where the German parliament comes together. Sit in front of the building for a picnic on the grass, or go inside, and take a look at the politicians as they work.

Germany is a very open-minded political society. Where else could you visit your parliament just by going there and taking a seat? We are not talking about a small and unimportant country here, but of one of the leading economies in the world.

After the horror of the two world wars, Germany has left its monarchist and dictatorial past behind, and has finally become a democratic country, embedded in its community of states. Knowledge of the Third Reich is still noticeable in Germany, and you will find signs of it in the modern constitution with its strong focus on freedom and human rights. You can see it at many events and memorials, as well as in constantly political and historical debates. As a consequence of adapting to their very unique history, the Germans have built up a modern humanistic society – broad-minded and peaceable.

At the federal level, there are elections every four years in which allcitizens decide on a new government. There are different parties with varying interests. Everybody is invited to form their own party to try and get votes at the election. Every adult German can apply for political office, such as chancellor or president. In fact, such a political career is the same treadmill everywhere. You don't have to be a millionaire or a member of a famous family to be a successful politician in Germany. German chancellors were formerly lawyers, physicists, economists and mayors.

Germany is a secular country with a separate church and state. The constitution allows each individual to adopt their personal religion as long as others are not restricted and laws are observed.There is broad common sense in Germany concerning the great challenges of the future. People know and appreciate the move from nuclear and fossil-fuel energy towards renewable energy, appreciate immigration, and tend to be a fair community without excessive individual wealth and poverty.
