As far as I know, if you want to create Virtual Machines in Germany, you may login to Microsoft Azure Germany. Also we can use PowerShell to login the Azure Germany:

Login-AzureRmAccount -Environment AzureGermanCloud

Notice: The Azure account is different with Azure Germany Cloud.

If you still have questions, welcome to post back here. Thanks.

Thank you for posting on the Azure forums!

Is Azure GermanCloud a part of your Enterprise Agreement? This is a separate Cloud from the more widely used AzureCloud and therefore would need to be a part of your EA with Microsoft for you to use this platform.

If you know that it already exists for your account then what Jason has suggested should help you out. If not, then kindly get in touch with your Enterprise Agreement representative or your Technical Account manager and discuss about getting this activated for your subscription.

Hope this helps.
