The figure followed an upwardly revised 0% quarter-on-quarter growth in the three months to September, escaping recession, Destatis data showed.

"In the final quarter, declining investment had a dampening effect on economic activity, while consumption increased slightly," said Ruth Brand, president of Destatis.
