Welcome to Alabama – the Heart of Dixie, in the Deep South of the USA!

Moving to another country is difficult, we understand. At the AlabamaGermany Partnership, we want to help make the transition easier. We strive to support you and your family as you learn about the cultural differences in the United States. Differences can be found in everything from the education system to taxes, to what it means to build a credit score. Contact us to learn about our Expat Info Session.

In the meantime, enjoy the experience of other German expats in Alabama and make sure to check out our Guide to Alabama (link to PDF) filled with information and resources for your stay in Alabama.
