Germans prefer .de domains and hyphenated word combinations.
.DE is the way to go. Germans don't use .COMs until they leave DE, if even then. Only sold one DE IDN․com last year, and only for $1800.
Looking forward, German COM sales may improve as .DE namespace fills up, and companies (especially Swiss) advertise in more than one country. pic.twitter.com/mjYilwmzPu
