  The European XFEL is presently under construction in Hamburg, Germany. It consists of a 1.2 km long superconducting linac serving an about 3 km long electron beam transport system. Three undulator systems of up to 200 m length each produce hard and soft x-rays via the self-amplified spontaneous emission (SASE) process. We will present the status of the civil construction and the accelerator components. The production of the 100 superconducting accelerator modules is distributed between industries and a collaboration of accelerator laboratories. We describe the carefully orchestrated production sequence, quality assurance measures and risk mitigation mechanisms. The last module is scheduled to be installed in the accelerator in spring 2015 and commissioning with beam will start in summer of that year.
