The German Football Association (DFB) has submitted its bid to host the 2024 European Championship finals.
UEFA confirmed in March 2017 that the tournament will be held in either Germany or Turkey.
DFB president Reinhard Grindel handed over the association's bid documents to UEFA on Tuesday alongside bid ambassador and former Germany and Bayern Munich captain Philipp Lahm.
The Turkish Football Federation (TFF) will submit its bid this week, with European football's governing body set to announce the host on 27 September.
"I am certain that we will once again feel great enthusiasm and create a new spirit of solidarity at Euro 2024," said Lahm, who captained the World Cup 2014 winners and is a DFB bid ambassador.
"We are building bridges between people of different nations, and are making an important contribution to bringing alive both the values of football and those of a modern civil society," added Grindel.
Euro 2024 will return to a single-host format, after Euro 2020 will be held in 12 cities across Europe.
