Weak manufacturing orders and industrial production data in December had raised fears that the economy stagnated or even contracted in 4Q.
The agency, however, also revised data for the third quarter of 2019. Following the revision, Germany's GDP increased 0.2% in the period, compared with a first estimate of a 0.1% rise.
GDP grew 0.4% on year in the fourth quarter on a calendar and price adjusted basis, Destatis said. ■
