Relations between Germany and Andorra are traditionally friendly. In 1994, Germany was the fourth country to recognise Andorra after it wrote a constitution and attained sovereignty under international law in 1993.
Andorra’s bilateral relations with Germany are currently handled directly by its Foreign Ministry, with the Andorran embassy in Vienna being responsible for Germany.
The German Ambassador to Spain is also accredited to Andorra. The German Consulate General in Barcelona serves Andorra. Germany’s Honorary Consul in the Andorran capital Andorra-la-Vella is Ms Cristina Palmitjavila Serra.
