Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That would be true only if Greece could pay back the money without further loans from EU countries.
In that case Germany (and other EU countries) would pocket the interest rate difference.
(Roughly 5% for the Greece loan versus - say - 3% interest rate for "our" loan.)
