If you live outside Germany, accessing some services can prove difficult. This is because there are several websites that you can’t access unless you are connecting through a German IP address. A good example is a large majority of news and video sites located in Germany. So what do you do? Do not fret, this is exactly the reason Virtual Private Networks (VPN) were created.
However, the market is flooded with VPN companies and choosing one is a complex decision. There are hundreds of companies online. Each of them claims to offer the best VPN for Germany.

While conducting our study, we considered various parameters such protocol used, bandwidth limitations, price and a host of other pertinent issues.

2013 Overall Winner – HideMyAss
Without a doubt, HideMyAss Pro VPN is our winner for best VPN of 2013. After extensive testing, we have no qualms recommending this application. The software is great, the servers are fast and they have thousands (over 45,000) of International IP addresses, including several thousand German IP addresses. In addition, the software is simple and light weight. You will not be stuck with a huge download and it doesn’t use up much system resources – which cannot be said of several other VPN products we tested. The entire setup takes less than five minutes – to download and connect. The price is also easy on the pocket at only $6.55 per month. However, you can get a larger discount by making an annual payment. More importantly, you have 30 days to try the software. If you do not like it, you can cancel your subscription and get your money back.
IPVanish was only founded in March 2012 but in a short period of time it has become a top contender in the VPN market, a clear vote of confidence from consumers. However, despite the fact that the product is relatively new, the company and founders have been in the Internet security business for over 15 years. The company has an International presence that sets it apart from much of the competition.
Private Internet Access
One of the unique things about Private Internet Access is that they have given a strict guarantee that your online activity will not be logged. As a matter of fact, they are one of the few companies that accept anonymous email addresses. They are also one of the few VPN companies that accept Bitcoin for payment. The only downside is that they do not have a money back guarantee.
VPN4ALL offers the option of metered or unlimited VPN plans. For example, you can purchase 5 GB of traffic monthly on a mobile device, or 50 GB of traffic monthly on Windows or Mac. Additionally, they also offer unlimited traffic which comes in handy if you view a lot of videos online.
