As a resident, you would file an I-130 with the service center after the marriage, however
bear in mind, this will take 4-5 years to process because these are on a limited number
each year and there are huge backlogs. She would have to stay in Germany until it
processed or until she had been waiting 3 years, at which time she would be eligible for a
V visa to enter the US.

You are not eligible for a fiance visa. Once you get citizenship, however, you could
notify the service center of that and your I-130 would bump up to citizen status, which
would mean immediate processing. So after you got your citizenship, everything would
process in a matter of a few months.

IF she has a college education, she might more easily gain legal status in the US via some
other kind of visa, such as work visa...as long as she had a way to maintain legal status
in the US, you could marry and file the I-130 and she could continue on her work visa
until that processed. This would be your quickest alternative, if she could get a work
visa, because she would have to have a way to maintain status while she awaited the
processing of the I-130.
