Investing in Germany is quite easy, you could do so by buying German stocks. There are many German stocks to invest in, but in this article, I will talk about Germany's blue-chip stocks, stocks from the DAX index
The DAX (Deutscher Aktienindex (German stock index)) is a blue-chip stock market index consisting of the 30 major German companies trading on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. Prices are taken from the Xetra trading venue. According to Deutsche Börse, the operator of Xetra, DAX measures the performance of the Prime Standard’s 30 largest German companies in terms of order book volume and market capitalization.
Here I have listed all 30 stocks from the DAX index, sorting by the highest dividend yield.
When looking at German stocks, I'm more interested in selling options on them, as to collect dividends, when talking about the DAX index - all stocks from the index are optionable, which is awesome.

It's amazing to note, all stocks from the DAX index are paying dividends. I'm not an expert in German stocks but seems dividends are paid annually (unlike in the US, where dividends are paid quarterly or even monthly)
Dividends are not the reason I'm looking at these German stocks, options are.
