The Grundrechte at Jakob-Kaiser-Haus, Berlin

Fundamental rights in the German Constitution (German: Grundrechte) are a set of rights guaranteed to the German people through their Basic Law (German: Grundgesetz). The majority of the fundamental rights are contained in the Articles 1 to 19 of the Grundgesetz (GG). These rights are binding each of the country's constitutional institutions. In case the Grundrechte are violated and a remedy is denied by other courts, the Basic Law provides for an appeal to the Federal Constitutional Court of Germany (German: Bundesverfassungsgericht).
