Chinese embassies in Germany
If you want to travel to China, you do not have to do that anymore via a message, but via the newly created Visa Service Center:
Visa for China
As an EU citizen you need a visa if you want to enter China. It is best to apply for this in Germany. Attention, here you have enough time to plan. It took me a few days to pick up the visa. The visa is now no longer applied directly to the embassy, but to outsourced visa centers. These are located in Berlin, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Munich. More information about the sites can be found on the official website: http://www.visaforchina.org/.
