The Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) is a German euroskeptic and right-wing party, which was founded in 2013.
The AfD has been accused of appealing to right-wing extremist voters on issues such as immigration. Following the influx of refugees in 2015 the party has seen a marked success in regional and European elections. This is a collection of DW's content on the AfD party.

Find out with Damien McGuinness and Michaela Küfner, and guests Spiegel International's Charles Hawley and DW's Max Koschyk.
