Consul General Wolfgang Mössinger
German-American relations are strong: business links, scientific and academic exchanges, joint cultural projects and – above all – long-standing personal ties constitute the base for our friendship.Consul General Wolfgang Mössinger
From the heart of the City of Chicago, the German Consulate General provides services to constituents of 13 states from North Dakota to Kentucky, covering a space six times the territory of Germany. Of the more than 70 million people living in these states, about 20 million have German roots.
It is obvious in many cities and towns that German immigrants played a crucial role in the history of the Midwest and continue to play to this day. It is my great pleasure and honor to contribute to keeping these long-standing ties between Germany and the Midwest alive and develop them further.
German-American relations are strong: business links, scientific and academic exchanges, joint cultural projects and – above all – long-standing personal ties constitute the base for our friendship. Even in these difficult times, the United States and Germany, together with their European allies, are ready to develop common approaches and common solutions to the great challenges the world faces today.
Our work in the Consulate is guided to enhance this friendship on the basis of the shared set of values that bind democracies together.
For all of you who have an interest in all questions related to Germany, the team of the Consulate General will be your first point of contact. We have the necessary expertise in legal and consular matters and can provide you with political, economic and cultural information. In case we cannot help, we know who can. This might be our Embassy in Washington, an Honorary Consul near you, the German American Chamber of Commerce, the Goethe Institute or some other organization.
We look forward to hearing from you.
