Germany and Sweden have had a long history of cooperation in trade. During the First World War Sweden and Germany had a neutral diplomatic relationship. However during World War II relations between the two cooled significantly, however after the war ended relations between the two improved again.
In the early 1900’s Swedish government bought land for its delegations in Tiergarten. The Nordic Embassies that occupy the space nowadays include four other embassies from Nordic countries. This unique cooperation between five Nordic embassies is exemplary in Berlin. Honorary consuls of Sweden are located in Bremen, Düsseldorf, Erfurt, Frankfurt am Main, Hamburg, Hannover, Kiel, Leipzig, Lübeck-Travemünde, München, Rostock, and Stuttgart.
