Well I am finding it difficult to find 'key turning points' in German history from 1880. The earliest I can think of and actually write about is the WWI, I've tried writing about Bismarck's foreign policy but it just doesn't seem to sit well in my essay and I'm having trouble understanding it.

Just one major turning point between 1880-1900 would do me good, if anyone could give me any sources that would be helpful.

Thanks

The forming of the Triple Alliance (1882) has to be a biggie. Then you could look at the early development of fascism in Germany with things like the Pan-German League (Alldeutscher Verband) in 1891.

If you're going on after 1900, look at the Schlieffen Plan (1905), which set the Prussian military thinking that led to WW1.
