      The ground (estate) tax is a tax on the ownership of land parcels
      (wealth tax). The basis for the groundtax is mostly the worth of the
      parcel. In many countries, the tax rate is set at the local level.

      The situation in Germany is described in detail at Groundtax (Germany).

      Austria

      The Austrian scheme is very similar to the situation in
      Germany, details are described under property tax (Austria).

      Canada

      Many provinces in Canada levy a property [following
      clause negates "land"] tax, the amount of which
      depends on the worth and use of the parcel. This is a
      primary source of revenue for most local governments
      http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kommunalverwaltung in
      Canada. The tax rate varies between municipalities, but
      most of the levy bases, assessment procedures, etc. are
      established via provincial law. Increasingly, a standard
      market value http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marktwert
      is used, which is adjusted in different cycles. Some
      provinces provide for an annual adjustment in the event
      that the property market is particularly volatile, while
      others allow long periods to elapse between revaluations.

      Netherlands

      Municipalities levy the estate tax (Dutch: Onroerend goed
      belasting or onroerende zaak belasting (OZB)) in 2 parts:
      on the dwellers and on the owner of the house. Tenants of
      housing pay only the portion that accrues to the dwellers.
      In recent years, increases of over 10% in this taxation in
      some municipalities were cause for concern. In 2005 there
      was a bill in Parliament that only the owner's part should
      be kept, as this is not likely to rise faster than inflation.

        It looks like each state has an ad valorem real estate tax (land and buildings). I looked at a couple of state sites.  It looks like it is paid quarterly, but there are exemptions of credit for children and and some kind of lower rate if the condo is newer. 
         
        It appears that there is a london office ( i gather for foreign owners to pay?) maybe you could call them and they could give you a sketch of how real estate taxes actual work in Germany.   I saw one site explaining how that soil evaluation is down for ag land and presumable to make assessments.
