Speculation has been rife that the country is ushering in thousands of migrants via Cologne Bonn Airport, fuelled by the fact every night numerous planes from Turkey are landing.
Led by Chancellor Angela Merkel, the European country has agreed to take in 28,600 migrants under various agreements.
Of this figure, 27,000 – out of 160,000 – will arrive in the country from Italy and Greece.
In a second agreement between Turkey and EU, 18,000 migrants from Syria will be distributed across the continent, with Germany’s share of the total standing at 1,600.

Under this arrangement only 294 migrants have entered the country, according to the Federal Ministry of the Interior.
They maintained there had only been two charter flights, and none at night.
A spokesman for the airport was forced to deny the claims after rumours reached fever pitch.
They refuted the accusations, adding all flights were normal tourist planes.
They said: “Currently, there are speculations circulating online about alleged secret night flights from Turkey to the Cologne / Bonn Airport, that bring refugees to Germany. These claims are not true.
“Contrary to speculation online, the flights have not increased over the previous year, although the total traffic grew by 18 percent during the holiday season.”
The reason behind some of the night flightsat the airport being higher than other was different regulations.
They pointed to Berlin – Tegel Airport, where there is a ban on night flights between 11pm and 6am.
The Interior Ministry also issued a statement via social media denying the claims.
Chancellor Merkel has come under fire for her open door policy on migrants, which has seen more than one million pour across the borders.
She has faced criticism both inside her party and globally, with some drawing parallels between her stance and the spike in terror attacks across the country.
