Serbs (German: Serben in Deutschland; Serbian: Срби у Немачкој/Srbi u Nemačkoj) are the seventh largest group of foreigners in Germany.[2] Most Serbs living in Germany, moved during the 1960s and 1970s as Gastarbeiter or "Guest workers" when Serbia was part of Yugoslavia. A small percentage of Serbs migrated to Germany as refugees during the Yugoslav Wars of the 1990s.

Demographics[edit]

The majority (64%) of the Serbian population is concentrated in three federal states: North Rhine-Westphalia, Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria. Within the three states the Serbs are numerous in Düsseldorf, Stuttgart and Munich.[3] In 2010, the Federal Statistical Office, the number of Serb nationals in Germany stood at 179,048. Another 93,013 people living in Germany with the citizenship of the former Serbia and Montenegro have not yet decided on one of the possible new citizenships.[2][2]
