The Embassy of Singapore in Germany was established in April 1973 in Bonn and moved its premises to Berlin on the 10th of August 1999. On the 15th of September 2011, the embassy moved to its present location at Voßstraße 17, near Potsdamer Platz.

Singapore and Germany have close relations on a bilateral and multilateral level. Singapore’s significant role in the regional organization ASEAN, its stability and its regional significance make it an important partner in Asia for Germany. The good relations between the two countries were enhanced by frequent mutual visits of high-level officials such as the visit the Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong payed to the German Chancellor Angela Merkel in 2015.
