German Sikhs are a religious minority in Germany. Many German Sikhs have their roots from the Punjab region in India. They number between 15,000 and 21,000.[1] Germany had the third highest Sikh population in Europe after United Kingdom and Italy.

In the early 21st century, also native Germans have adopted the Sikh Faith. Frankfurt, is also known to the Sikhs, as Mini Punjab, because of a large Sikh population, residing there.
