The German culture has, as long as Germany did not exist as a nation, for centuries, defined primarily on the common language. Only in the course of the 19 Century was increasingly based on the concept of culture and contributions of Germans within German territory. Therefore, many artists are in their time were not German in the modern sense, in their German identity, however, there are no doubts. Quite a few famous representatives of culture and science, however, were in their time in Germany itself primarily proscribed on political or religious reasons, some of them have been deprived of, or found themselves encouraged to emigrate - among them, for example, Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels, Heinrich Heine, Kurt Tucholsky, Bertolt Brecht, Thomas and Heinrich Mann, Albert Einstein, Hannah Arendt and many others.

At the beginning of the 20th Century, Germany was the world's leading scientific nation, culturally, such as in the film, one of the front seats occupied.

Germany and Austria, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart claim for themselves.
The (flower) development of choral music in Germany, was interrupted by World War II and subsequently stopped dramatically. Only since the last decades of the 20th Century is in that direction again a boom of international importance take place.

Germany has a rich and diverse architectural history that is closely intertwined with the history of Western architecture of the neighboring countries. Basis was primarily the architecture of Roman times, has survived numerous buildings. Some Pre-romanesque architecture like the gatehouse Lorsch today still show the development of Romanesque architecture, which begins in the Holy Roman Empire around 1030th The Gothic style began in France, the first Gothic buildings in the Holy Roman Empire were built from about 1230, for example, the Church of Our Lady in Trier. By about 1520, the Renaissance came from the territory of modern Italy in the Holy Roman Empire, as an outstanding example is the Augsburg Town Hall. The baroque began in the Holy Roman Empire of the German nation only delayed (from 1650). Some examples are the works of Balthasar Neumann, the Wies Church and the Palace of Ludwigsburg. Around 1770, the style of classicism epoch begins. Prominent buildings are the Altes Museum in Berlin, the Charlottenhof and the Brandenburg Gate.

UNESCO lists 33 German contributions to world heritage, which are spread over 15 of the 16 German states (Hamburg, just does not Heritage): 31 world cultural and natural inherit 2. The list was opened with the Aachen Cathedral, 1978; recent newcomer was 2008, the Berlin Modernism Housing Estates. In addition, UNESCO is engaging with the Messel Pit and) the German Wadden Sea two World Heritage sites (see bar at the end of the chapter. To date, UNESCO passed a place in Germany from its list of world heritage sites - the Dresden Elbe Valley (World Heritage Status from 2004 to 2009) - due to the construction of the Waldschlößchenbrücke who saw the UNESCO as a threat to the landscape.

Particularly high attendance reaching cultural monuments, which give an idea of German Romanticism and do not necessarily have to be honored as world heritage. So are the castles of Neuschwanstein and Heidelberg, the Valhalla and the medieval towns of Rüdesheim on the Rhine and Rothenburg ob der Tauber, the world's famous tourist sites. Are enjoying increasing popularity as well as monuments and cityscapes from the time of the Industrial Revolution. Closed historic townscapes are found in major German cities today, barely, since the Second World War and the post-war reconstruction has irreparably damaged much of the cultural monuments. Small and medium-sized cities with largely closed historic old town pictures but are found in Germany is still quite common.

Social Services, Social
In Germany, the legal equality of the sexes is largely achieved. Germany also offers its residents a comparatively extensive legal rights to social security. For workers there is an obligation of membership in social security, which consists of five so-called pillars: health insurance, accident insurance, pension insurance, unemployment insurance and care insurance. This basic social security is generally funded by contributions from the insured, the deficits, however, offset by tax money.
Despite these social entitlements were in Germany in 2003 approximately 15 percent of children under 15 years and more than 19 percent of adolescents 16 to 24 years below the poverty line, with growing poverty among children in Germany according to UN figures, more than in most other industrialized countries. The number of functional illiterates in Germany is still depending on the differentiation method, between about 6.5 percent and more than 11 percent of the adult population.
The history of Social Security begins in the Empire. Subsequent governments have gradually extended and supplemented with additional social transfers, which is now a large part of the state budget used for social affairs.
The German health system is among the most highly developed of the world, which is reflected in the internationally very low rate of infant mortality, the high average life expectancy and the high percentage of successful operations. The average life expectancy in Germany in 2006 was 79 years. Infant mortality is about 5 in every 1000 births.
Germany has a pension system from charges. This means that each working people funded by their contributions, payments to the retirees. The current low birth rate and high unemployment are a problem for the pension scheme dar.
Due to the financial welfare of the basic insurance is guaranteed.
Besides the state-organized transfers between citizens, there are domestic transfers. With the federal fiscal equalization with high tax revenues are required to leave a portion of their revenue to disadvantaged countries to go to living conditions in Germany not too far apart. Through the income tax levied on the solidarity of the new states created the division of burdens should be eased.
