The long-lived fruitful Romanian-German scientific cooperation in Nuclear Physics and Cosmic Ray Physics is shortly presented. From the German side following cities are involved: Frankfurt am Main; Darmstadt; Giessen; Tuebingen; Koeln; Karlsruhe, and Berlin. All Romanians are from IFIN-HH (Horia Hulubei National Institute for Physics and Nuclear Engineering). More details are given concerning the theory of cold valleys in fusion reactions producing superheavy nuclei , predictions of cluster radioactivities, and the three main decay modes of superheavies: alpha decay; sponaneous fission and cluster radioactivity. A special section is devoted to Walter Greiner (1935-2016) who was the most important personality who mainly influenced this cooperation. Also we found four Romanian scientists mentioned in Encyclopaedia Britannica: N.C. Paulescu for insulin (1921); Henri Coandă (1930) for his effect in fluidics; A. Sandulescu and D.N. Poenaru (1980) for prediction of heavy particle radioactivity.
