Inflation in Germany, Europe's biggest economy, picked up in May from the two-and-a-half year low it had reached the previous month, official data showed on Wednesday.
The cost of living in Germany increased by 1.5 percent on a 12-month basis last month, up from 1.2 percent in April, the federal statistics office Destatis calculated in final data.
On a monthly basis, the consumer price index (CPI) rose by 0.4 percent in May from April.
The final data confirmed a preliminary estimate released at the end of last month.
