The 61-year-old led the team to a World Cup title in 2014, but the nation was plunged into despair four years later when a shock 2-0 defeat to South Korea saw Germany fail to reach the knockout stage of a World Cup for the first time since 1978.
After a long playing career and ten years in management, Low became Germany's assistant coach when Jurgen Klinsmann took over from his former team-mate Rudi Voller in 2004.
Low was then promoted to head coach two years later, after Germany could only manage a third place finish in the 2006 World Cup on home soil and Klinsmann decided to leave his role.
'Die Mannschaft' were runners-up at the 2008 European Championship before finishing in third place again at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
Low then led Germany to the semi-finals at the 2012 and 2016.
This year's rescheduled European Championship is set to take place between June 11 and July 11.
