I've always used EBE Alien picks, medium size. I like the ones that glow in the dark so I can them when I drop them.

Green Tortex Standard for guitar, yellow ones for bass. I use them for many years, with holes punched in for better grip. The Everly Star picks are a nice alternative, but there's no distributer in Germany.
And when I grow up, I'll only use my bare hands, like Wilko, Bill ... and Joe.

Just found a store with a stock of Tortex Jazz III's in sharp and round shapes in red, green, and purple. Picked up a few of each, and have been having fun with them. I've been liking the sharp red(the thinnest Tortex gauge for those of us not loyal to the mighty Dunlop). They have the natural compression of any thin pick, great for even strumming patterns, but the small Jazz III shape and sharp tip help keep me ready for single-note passages which big, floppy picks tend to start failing on.

FWIW, GraphTech is giving away free samples of their Tusq picks if you email your mailing info to them at sales@graphtech.com by 12/31. (They replied to me that they're also sending their PrePlay string cleaner/lubricant product.)

My Bass player swears by Preplay , he has pretty sweaty hands and it is a great tool to combat that issue. It also replaces using Fastfret and is NOT greasy.

I just got some Planet Waves celluloid picks, standard Fender shape, in medium and heavy. Afterthought because they were on sale super cheap when I was buying strings. I had started on Fender celluloids, still have a handful, but have been off of them for years and am still not a fan. But the Planet Waves just seem much nicer to me. It might be that they have a bit of a matte finish (tumbling after fabrication maybe?), so they grip nicer. Weird little things that make a difference sometimes.
