The Germans in Mexico City – their history reaches far back into the past. German merchants who immigrated to former New Spain almost 200 years ago left their marks and many of their descendents still live in Mexico today. However, this thesis does not only deal with the past, but it is mainly concerned with the situation of the German population in Mexico City today. The main focus is placed on the integration of the Germans into the Mexican culture and on the question of whether the German culture and its customs are also preserved. In order to obtain an answer to these questions which is not only current but also based on first-hand information, a survey questioning the Germans and people of German origin living in Mexico City was conducted. Its evaluation is the base for the interesting results of this thesis.
