It is operated by the Government of the United States annually.

U.S Embassy and Consulates in Germany look after the welfare of their citizens and the diplomatic activities.
Also they provide processing facility for those diversity visa lottery winners.
Advice to the winners.
Selectees must pay the processing fee of USD $330 (or the current Euro equivalent) to the Consulate on the day of their interview. Also you need to pay for each of your eligible dependants too. Those who had obtained the visas must pay another US$165 as USCIS consulting fees.
All the documents that are not in English should be submitted with a translation copy.
Paying the processing fees DO NOT GUARANTEE that you will be issued with the required entry permit as you still need to qualify during the interview.
