Named after a steam ship upon its founding in 1892, Hertha Berlin is the most prominent football export from the German capital. Their two championships in 1930 and 1931 came before the Bundesliga era.

They are now an up-and-coming club in Germany and call the Olympic Stadium their home. Follow all the updates related to Hertha Berlin in DW's content, collated below.
