Important note on German Dividends: Companies as posted below pay usually only once a year and you do find the info from the ADR bank or the website. However you need to know that most if not all German companies declare their dividend at their AGM (Annual General Meeting)and they pay the dividend within a few days. There really is no X-dividend date per se because you must be a holder of record on the date of the AGM. Some companies actually declare that day and pay the next so no time to get in. So you always need to know when the annual meeting is and you get that from their company websites.
