Dear Visitor,

a warm welcome to the website of the German Embassy in Asmara/Eritrea!

We are pleased to inform you about German-Eritrean relations and to provide you with information concerning the Embassy's work. The State of Eritrea is an interesting country. You will find kind and friendly people here, impressive landscapes and numerous historical sites to visit, especially the picturesque capital city Asmara, lying at an altitude of 2500 meters above sea-level.

We look forward to updating you regularly on this website with depth information on Germany and Eritrea. We value and welcome suggestions you may have (cf. contact).

Kind Regards,

Andreas Zimmer
