Germany is a country in west central Europe,Germany is often called called Das Land der Dichter und Denker (the land of poets and thinkers) ,German culture began long before the rise of Germany as a nation state and spanned the entire German-speaking world.  Now it includes the wonderful singer David Hasselhoff.  From its roots, culture in Germany has been shaped by major intellectual and popular currents in Europe, both religious and secular. germany is a parliamentary federal  republic of sixteen states. The capital city and seat of government is Berlin. as a nation state the counry was unified near the end of the Franco-prussian in 1871,After world war 2 Germany's territory was divided into two separate states.  Germany is also famous for Oktoberfest!.

 

After world war 2 the capital city of Berlin was split.The comunist took the eas and the capitalist took the west. A wall was erected,"The Berlin Wall". This wall essentially split germany into two.The wall was eventually torn down but it still has an effect on german culture today.

 german holidays  are New Year's Day (January 1); Good Friday (Friday before Easter Monday); Easter Monday; Labor Day (May 1); Ascension Day (Sixth Thursday after Easter Monday); Whit Monday (Seven weeks after Easter Monday); Day of Unity (October 3); Christmas (December 25-26)
