Germany is Europe’s largest economy, and the fourth strongest in the world, with a Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of more than €3 trillion. And despite the ongoing uncertainty over Brexit, Germany remains the UK’s largest export market in Europe and second largest globally after the US. Its consistently strong economic performance offers long-term growth potential for UK businesses.
If you’re thinking of exporting to Germany, or you have colleagues or clients out there, instead of taking the time and money to fly across the continent, it makes more sense to stay in touch via teleconference, using your landline or mobile.

Where is Germany?
Located in northern Europe, Germany has North Sea and Baltic Sea coastlines to the north, where it also borders Denmark. It is bordered by Poland and Czechia to the east, Austria and Switzerland to the south, and by France, Luxembourg, Belgium and the Netherlands to the west.
What’s the best time to call Germany from the UK?
You can fly from London to Berlin in just under two hours, and during summer Germany is just an hour ahead of the UK so just keep this in mind when calling – you’ll probably get away with calling during your normal business hours (give or take an hour!)
