Hungarians in Germany

There are around 120,000 Hungarians in Germany.[1] Hungarians have emigrated here since the Middle Ages, with an increase after World War I. Today, around 75% of this population live in the states of Bavaria, Baden-Württemberg and Hessen.[1]


Only about 60% arrived with a Hungarian passport, as many of them arrived from areas of the former Kingdom of Hungary[1] (see Treaty of Trianon, 1920).

Major population changes:


In 2006/2007, Hungary presented its country and culture in Germany with a whole series of cultural events including the exhibition "Germans in Hungary – Hungarians in Germany. European Lives".[2]
