German Ambassador to the UAE, HE Ernst Peter Fischer said: “Germany ranks among the top European destinations for Emirati travellers and we are proud to have established such strong tourism and trade links between our two countries. Germany is a fantastic place to visit, study and do business, and we look forward to welcoming more Emiratis to our wonderful country.”
