Following our listmaking tradition (see the 50 most popular sites from Germany, German startups and twitter and Germany’s most anticipated web 2.0 sites) here is a list of the 40 most popular sites from Germany which have been inspired by flickr’s r-naming scheme. The popularity is based on the current number of bookmarks at del.icio.us.

Most sites are in German only so our apologies to our international readers.
