Ancient Greece has long been regarded as the ancestor of European civilization, but the Germanic people are often despised in the formation of modern European culture. Their contribution to modern European culture is no less than that of ancient Greece. In their native land, the Germanic people developed a cultural characteristic of emphasizing the whole and advocating bravery and glory. After the fall of the Roman Empire, they invaded Europe, established their dynasty, influenced the whole European continent with their own culture, and gave European culture rebirth and recasting. Based on the history and culture of the Germanic nation, this paper combs and summarizes the main characteristics and historical significance of the Germanic people. It can be found that, like Greek and Roman cultures, Germanic cultural characteristics also have a certain degree of impact on other parts of Europe and realize cultural complementarity. This paper is only an attempt to study Germanic culture. There are still many deficiencies on literature materials and views. It is expected to attract more scholars’ interest and attention to Germanic culture.
