Resources for Expats in Germany

Expat Life Germany is a podcast that is focused on experiences and stories of Germany as told by foreigners. It is not intended to provide help or resources for expats in Germany. But here is a list of other resources, many that do just that! This page lists other sites and resources that might be interesting for you as an outsider in Germany. It’s a living, breathing list, so I will update it over time.
