It was never available in Germany in the past couple of years due to licensing reasons.

You have to order a copy from online retailer like Amazon, game etc.

I am not sure but this MAY be possible. Can you give your steam account to a friend outside of Germany and ask him to buy fm with it. Then perhaps you can just log in, download and play?

Not really supposed to be discussed on the forums beyond "not available due to licensing issues", so I'd be careful.

The problem is the activation, not the purchase. You can also buy it from one of thousdands of key sites online, for a price around 25€, but you can't activate it in Germany.

I don't know if activate it outside Germany, then use it in Germany is equiparable to VPN.

Gifting is the easiest way if you're lucky enough to be able to arrange it.

If you can get a disc copy that also works.

Don't discuss "other" ways on this forum please.

And i have to do the activation ? Or can i buy a normal box-version and install it offline?

You need to activate online and if you even hint at piracy again you're out of here.

That's wrong.

A lot of misleading information here.

Fact 1: The game can't be sold in Germany, due to licensing reasons.

Fact 2: A boxed copy bought or ordered abroad/online can be activated in Germany.

There is a FM fan site in Germany for more information:

www.meistertrainer.de

(obviously in German)

I live in Germany as well and KUBI got it exactly right. I ordered all my copies of FM with Amazon.uk (boxed) and it can be activated from Germany without any problems.
