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

"Germany is a diverse country, with a wide variety of cultural backgrounds and religions represented throughout its population. The German people have been known to be accepting of differences and tolerant in their views, embracing the cultural and religious diversity that exists within the nation. German culture is open to hearing different perspectives, emphasizing openness, acceptance and mutual respect for all," commented one expat who made the move to Germany.

"Less than 2% of population are foreigners here as in most cities in East Germany. Less than 20% belong to any religious grp, since most were atheists before anyway. However, the city has a cathedral and over 20 churches with a rich history dating over 1250 yrs, incl Martin Luther, Goethe and Bach," remarked another expat in Erfurt, Germany.
