If you’re a European Union citizen or come from Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland have the right to live and work in Germany, just like that.
All you have to do is register with the local government office where they’re be living (this office is typically called the "Einwohnermeldeamt" or "Bürgeramt").
If you’re Australian, Canadian, Israeli, Japanese, South Korean or a US American you can apply for a work or study visa after they enter Germany (this is what I did, by the way).
So it’s doable for you guys to enter Germany on a standard "Schengen" tourist visa, find a job, get your new employer to give you a letter of support and then go to the local government office to get a visa for a longer stay.
Nationals of other countries have to have to get their hands on a German residence permit (Auftenthaltserlaubnis) first, which you have to do before coming to Germany.
You guys should contact the German embassy in your country for more information.
Good luck getting that rubber stamp!
