Not really. Common accepted international treaties have precedence
over german laws. (That states the German constitution in Article 25;
a similar rule is stated in the treaty about treaties, but as you say
there are countries which ignore this.) And there is a international
treaty about which legal system applies in the area of civil law, but
I understand that treaty only in simple cases.
