Tuesday night's stunning qualifier match against Sweden made the list with Germany's exciting comeback to win 5-3 wowing crowds.
Tuesday also brought the sad news that Hans Riegel, German-born CEO of the Haribo sweets empire, had died at the age of 90.
And Thursday saw a German TV broadcaster receiving over 500 tip-offs after airing a programme about the 2007 disappearance of British toddler Madeleine McCann.
These are joined by shots from the "bishop of bling" Franz-Peter Tebartz-van Elst's journey to Rome on Ryanair and the protests around the funeral of former SS officer Erich Priebke.
