Queen Elizabeth II paid Germany a total of four official state visits. Probably the most historically significant was the first visit in 1965, which sealed Britain's reconciliation with Germany after the Second World War. Further state visits followed in 1992, 2004 and most recently in 2015 – this was also the Queen's last visit to Germany. However, there were a number of other visits, including even an official 'private visit' in 2001 to the soldiers of the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards at a military training area near Fallingbostel.
