European culture

German culture began long before the rise of Germany as a nation state. Due to its rich culture, Germany is often known as das Land der Dichter und Denker (the land of poets and thinkers).

Germany, over the centuries, has produced a great number of polymaths, geniuses and notable people, such as Albert Einstein, Ludwig van Beethoven, Johannes Kepler, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Immanuel Kant, Johann Sebastian Bach, Karl Marx, Richard Wagner, Martin Luther, Friedrich Nietzsche, Karl Benz, Georg Ohm, Rudolf Diesel, Johannes Gutenberg, Richard Strauss among others.
