When we asked people about diversity in Germany and whether locals are accepting of differences, they said...

"Yes, there is a lot of diversity in Germany. Its population is composed of people from a wide variety of backgrounds, both German and non-German. Germany is generally considered to be an accepting and tolerant nation with regards to differences. The government promotes diversity and equality, which is apparent in many public policies. Generally, people in Germany are accepting of differences, although there may be some pockets of intolerance. Despite this, overall, Germany is an inclusive and welcoming place for people from different backgrounds," explained one expat living in Germany.

"Heidelberg has a very diverse and international character as a result of several factors. Most notable is the city's large and prestigious university, which attracts lots of German and international students. The city also has large expat and immigrant communities. The U.S. military installations in and around the city and the military personell and civillian workers who live offbase. Because of the academic and international character of the town, most people speak some degree of English," said another expat in Heidelberg, Germany.
