The resolution of this model is 1.2 nm (2.2 km or 0.02°). This makes it more than 10 times higher resolution than most global models, which are typically 0.25°. This model has shorter range forecasts, offering just over one day of forecast data. Hourly forecasts are available.
Note that DWD improved this model on May 15, 2018. The former version was called COSMO DE, the new version is COSMO D2. The improved model has increased resolution, from 1.5 nm to 1.2 nm (roughly 2.8 km to 2.2 km). The coverage area has also increased, going 3° further west, now to 0°, as well as 2° further south and 1° further north.
