Consulates and Embassies

Resources for expats

How to Germany: I can not say enough good things about this website. Whether it’s a question on how the health system works, what you need for your driver’s license, or residence permits they have your answers. This is always my first go-to place for questions I have about life in Germany.

Toy Town Germany: There’s a lot going on on Toy Town Germany. I mostly use it because of it’s forums. I’m more likely to frequent the – surprise – NRW forum for discussions about life in the NRW and events in the area.
