If you download it from the adobe.com site it's $600 (= 500 Euro), while
here in Germany CS2 sells for 1800 Euro. Is there any special reason why
CS2 in Germany costs three times what it costs in the USA ?

The 1800 Euro price may be for the entire Creative Suite.

There are legitimate ways to get CS2 at a much lower price in the U.S.
For example, if you are eligible for an academic discount there are several
sites which can sell the software at a significant discount.
I do not know if Adobe allows European vendors this practice but it is
worth looking into.

Same reasons why the pills you buy in Germany are 1/3 the
price here in the US.

It is called capitalism. You charge what you can get.
