Yes, I think "Himmel und Erde" (Heaven and Earth) is a very german dish.
It's apple purre with mashed potatoes.
Since apples are growing on a tree they are "heaven", and potatoes who grow under the earth are the "earth" part of the dish.
A blood sausage (blood pudding, in German: Blutwurst) is additionally.

Well I think of course you should not forget Thüringer Klöße (check: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Th%C3%BCringer_Kl%C3%B6%C3%9Fe only in German unfortunately) and of course Bratwurst, which is different depending on where you eat it. For example in Thuringia they put caraway (I think this is the word for the German Kümmel) in it. Well and actually it really depends on where you buy it. The supermarket ones are no comparision to the ones you buy at the local butcher round the corner. Here in Weimar there is one particular I can recommend.

Well and of course the main substance of every German meal is bread. Local bakeries have a few dozen kinds. And well you really need Wurst for it. This means not Bratwurst or such, but rather cold meat. I am from Eisleben and from there is a real good one. It is actually called Bratwurst too. But this is misleading for Non-Germans as it's not grilled or fried. It's perfect for a Brotzeit (literally bread time).
One more thing I can recommend are pickles from Spreewald and mustard from Eastern Germany.

Enjoy and if you have questions feel free to ask
