The West Germanic tribes were Germanic peoples who spoke the branch of Germanic languages known as West Germanic languages.

They appear to be derived from the Jastorf culture, a Pre-Roman Iron Age offshoot of the Nordic Bronze Age culture.

The West Germanic tribes expanded southwards to the Rhine and later down to the Alps and west into Great Britain.
