The German Language Column
Word!

How does one find one's way around the rules of the German language, where do new words come from, and what are the most important changes in the use of the language - for example, due to digitalisation and a higher sensitivity due to the gender issue? These and other exciting topics are the focus of our column about the German language.

German cities
On the road with Rahel

Fresh air, clean drinking water, a park nearby, nice neighbors. People who are there for each other and take each other into consideration. That is what the Germans want in their cities. What are you doing for it? And what are the problems? The journalist Rahel Klein visits cities in Germany for you - and shows how people are committed to making them more liveable.
