I'm looking for an originally German introduction to quantum mechanics. Is there such a canonical book used in German QM undergraduate courses?

@Marek: I tend to agree, but it can be helpful to some. Actually, I think a general question about good books on QM in any language - probably community wiki and kept up to date - would be best. –  jdm Jun 14 '12 at 10:37

I think a very good orignally german QM book is:

Straumann: "Quantenmechanik: Ein Grundkurs über nichtrelativistische Quantentheorie"

there is also a second volume:

Straumann: "Relativistische Quantenfeldtheorie"

Another good book is from G. Grawert: Quantenmechanik

You may also have a look at Thirrings books about QM (it is mathematically more advanced).

I think Straumanns book is not "canonical".

Often used by students are the books by Nolting and Greiner.

From the experimental point of view you may have a look at Demtröders book.

Walter Greiner's first part on Quantum Mechanics
