The Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) put the total at between 5.3 million and 5.6 million, up around 900,000 since the last survey in 2015.


“The Muslim population group has become more diverse over recent years as a result of the migration from Middle Eastern countries,” BAMF president Hans-Eckhard Sommer said.
