CS (Computer Science) is called Informatik in Germany. It is very theoretically in the first years. As the name already implies it is not really about programming (though you program, too) but more about building and designing computer systems in a scientifically way (yes it is as boring as it sounds). You can take diploma, lectureship, bachelor of arts, bachelor of science or master of science.
It is taught at most german universities and is one of the most popular subjects. Because there are so many people who want to study it, there is a numerus clausus (n.c.).
