The German women's national ice hockey team represents Germany at the International Ice Hockey Federation's IIHF World Women's Championships. The women's national team is controlled by Deutscher Eishockey-Bund. Germany had 2,549 female players in 2011.[1]

History[edit]

The first international game for the German women's national team took place on 3 December 1988 in Geretsried against Switzerland. The final score was 6–5 for the Swiss, but the Germans avenged the loss in their second match. Against the Swiss, the Germans obtained their first victory. Germany is currently ranked 11th in the world, despite having nine times more female hockey players than 5th-ranked Russia. Germany's best finish at the Worlds was in 2017, where they finished fourth after an upset victory over Russia in the quarterfinals.
