It really depends on whether there's CDMA coverage in Germany or not (doubtful). AFAIK you have to rent a world phone from Verizon or work out another option if you want cell coverage in Germany. Verizon can confirm this for you. GSM World has info on coverage in Germany but it's probably all GSM info.
