The best source of information on starting up a business I have found to date here in Germany is the "Existenzgruendung" site run by the Federal Ministry for Economics and Technology.

Home Page:

Highlights: * Excellent magazine in PDF format: "GruenderZeiten" (also contains useful links) * Useful checklists in PDF format * Links to numerous useful web sites * RSS feed * Information for women starting their own business

Some of the content is in other languages than German, including English, but not everything is translated.
