What is the German National Anthem?
The German National Anthem is known as the Nationalhymne or Das Lied der Deutschen, "The Song of the Germans."
In today's episode of the podcast for German learners you'll hear:
- the current national anthem
- a bit of its history

It's really important to note the specifics of this Anthem because there is a strong connection to German history, one that is to be remembered and respected.
