Best Answer

They wanted to gain more land.

at first the Germans wanted to build an railway to the east through the balkans - who were a very poor area of Europe. Germany was part of the central powers, there was also Austria-hungry; they wanted to stop Serbia from stirring up the slavic people, then there was Russia who was a allied power, and was also a salvic country, and they wanted access from the black sea controlled by Turkish empire. and then there was Italy who wanted to control the other side of the Atlantic sea.

then the Germans wanted land in Paris in 1915, this was when they used the schlieffen plan and wanted to fight France and russia.
