Mystery Twister Level1: Original Caesar Cipher

Question: The Caesar cipher is a very simple example of a mono-alphabetic substitution. It was named after Gaius Julius Caesar who used it to encrypt messages of military significance. Your challenge is to decrypt the cipher text. The plaintext is partly German and partly English. The solution to this challenge is the last word of the German part of the plaintext and must be typed in with capital letters.

It is a pretty simple problem. You need to decrypt the given cipher using Caesar cipher decryption.
You can write a script to automate and find the possibilities for all 25 rotations.
If you can find the text that is partly in German and partly in English, you can very well find the answer – last word of the German text.
