Resources for Expats in Germany

Expat Life Germany is not intended to provide help or resources for expats in Germany, but rather to focus on experiences and stories of living in Germany as a foreigner. Because of this, I decided to create a page listing other sites and resources that might be interesting for you as an expat in Germany. It’s a living, breathing list, so I will update it over time.
