Strachan, who has been in charge of Scotland for 18 months, was in Brazil for the tournament and saw first-hand the substance and style of the team that decimated the hosts 7-1 in the semi-finals before winning the tournament.
Strachan's men will travel to Germany to face them on September 7 and he believes it is an exceptional position to be in."It will be a fantastic occasion," he said. "Most international teams, and most international managers and international coaches would love to be where we are on that night."
The 57-year-old also praised the German side for their performance on the international stage.
"The Germans are a team, with great players in it," he added. "I admire them. I like what they're doing, I like their attitude.
"Everything I believe makes a good football team is encapsulated in the Germans."
