3 German Shows to Watch on Netflix After “Dark”

Louis Hofmann in "Dark"

Whenever someone mentions the words “German show” and “Netflix”, Dark is the first thing that comes to mind. It’s one of the most mind-bending shows the streaming service ever gave us, but it’s not the only amazing series on Netflix hailing from Germany. Here are a few other German shows we recommend.

Babylon Berlin

If you’ve ever wondered what the roaring twenties looked like in Berlin, add this neo-noir series to your watch list. It follows the adventures of police inspector Gereon Rath, who transfers from Cologne to Berlin, where he tries to solve one of the most complicated cases of his career.

Dogs of Berlin

Dogs of Berlin is another popular crime drama you can find on Netflix. It centers on two police officers who find themselves exposed to the underbelly of the Berlin underworld while trying to solve the murder of a famous football player.


Loosely based on Patrick Süskind’s seminal novel of the same name, Perfume centers on a mysterious murder that might have something to do with a group of former boarding school students who used to experiment with human scents.
