Estonia’s historical embassy building in Berlin re-opened its doors in a formal ceremony attended by President Lennart Meri on the 27th of September 2001, ten years after the diplomatic relations between the two countries were restored in 1991.
Estonia and Germany’s membership in the European Union and NATO provides a framework for bilateral communication. Shared aspects of culture and history also continue to be a uniting factor in relations between the two. The closeness and frequency of bilateral contacts has grown year by year. In addition to Estonia's Embassy in Berlin, Estonia has 6 other representations in Germany. These representations include consulates in Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Kiel, Munich, Schwerin, and Stuttgart.
