Germanic paganism refers to the theology and religious practices of the Germanic peoples from the Iron Age until their christianization during the Medieval period. 

It has been described as being "a system of interlocking and closely interrelated religious worldviews and practices rather than as one indivisible religion" and as such consisted of "individual worshipers family-traditions and regional cults within a broadly consistent framework".

Germanic paganism took various forms in different areas of the Germanic world. The best documented version was that of 10th- and 11th-century Norse religion, although other information can be found from Anglo-Saxon and Continental Germanic sources.

Modern Germanic/Norse Paganism

From Wikipedia
Germanic Neopaganism (also known as Heathenism or Heathenry, Ásatrú, Odinism, Forn Siðr, Vor Siðr, and Theodism) is the modern revival of historical Germanic paganism. Precursor movements appeared in the early 20th century in Germany and Austria. A second wave of revival began in the early 1970s.Attitude and focus of adherents may vary considerably, from strictly historical polytheistic reconstructionism to syncretist (eclectic), pragmatic psychologist, occult or mysticist approaches. Germanic Neopagan organizations cover a wide spectrum of belief and ideals.
