45+ Beautiful Web Designs from Germany

Nov 29 2009 by Sergej Muller | 73 Comments

There are many German designers and developers (such as myself) using their skills and experience to design and create user-friendly and world-class quality websites. In this web design collection, you will find a fantastic and handpicked selection of creative and successful web designs from "good old Germany".

This design collection was inspired by the Smashing Magazine’s "Global Web Design" series (they already have a showcase for Russia and Ireland; you should check theirs out after).

Atlantis and Photocase are nice looking.

hehe, nice to see some germany design. but its kinda funny that you mention your own website :) although your page is really very beatiful.

here’s another beautiful webdesign from germany: http://stili.st (my own blog, to to do some selfadvertising too :)

Great web designs. I like how they’re detailed.

Amazing collection! Thanks:)

This is awesome. I’m German (even though I don’t currently live there) and had always somewhat little respect for the design of German web sites, but there is some really great stuff here.

hotmac

November 30th, 2009

A few good designs, but mostly not the best. The designs have not been carefully selected. Btw: It is very unprofessional to mention one’s own website as an example of beautful web design (which isn’t imho). Please try to research more carefully next time.

Some are nice (figurenschneider), but most of them hit the average mark.

An excellent collection of websites. There is some real talent in Germany. Definiately going to be keeping my eye on these guys ;) @Tobias – Was thinking the same thing lol

Thomas

November 30th, 2009

I have to mention the portfolio website from Michael Krautwasser, who is running http://www.bueroflint.com . He’s german, but living in Switzerland.

JN

November 30th, 2009

Agree with Twice. Most of these really are average. I’ve never felt that Germany was on the leading edge of design. Or super original for that matter. Smashing magazine is a sort of an exception based in Lübeck, but their design is outsourced. Also, I’d love to see something original come out of Germany. Too many things are copies. Look at werkstatt42, looks like a copy of basecamp with an iCal calendar attached to it.

http://www.2aid.org – I like this NPO website is really Cool! Totally different from the others NPO pages, here in Germany.

Tobbi

November 30th, 2009

Nice collection, thanks for sharing Sergej.

LX

November 30th, 2009

Werkstatt looks like Basecamp ? *huh – I agree a lot of agencys and freelancer copy Layout- & Designstyles, but thats an worldwide problem. I know more english examples, where Designer uses a lot of copy & past, than i know german examples … so what. Its not a country based problem, thats a worldwide problem.

Nice Works at all! But i don`tlike the Xing design!

@JN
A country doesn’t have a leading edge of design, it’s the people. The nationality doesn’t matter a single bit.
Of course I’m happy to see some great stuff from my country here, but to be honest it really doesn’t limit itself to Germany. Modern webdesigners or designers in general follow some standards that are international, even if there are specialized styles (like asian/indian for example, if you get my drift). If the language on some of these sites weren’t German you could just as well stick them into the US and no one would care to notice.

Quassum is nothing special in my opinion. A nice stock photo for the background and an average site above it. Just my 2 cents…

Katie

December 1st, 2009

I really like the designs they are fresh, I went to navigate them though and I think I need to brush up on my languages.

Carmen from chocri

December 1st, 2009

Hey, thanks for the great feedback on chocri.de. For all of those who prefer your websites in English – we are launching in the US in January, in English, with the same design. Leave us your email on our blog (www.createmychocolate.com) and we’ll send you the invitation to our soft launch on January 5.

Then you can also design some chocolate bars :)
