Codecademy is really slow for me (In Germany)

Hi,
Codecademy takes about 6-8 Seconds to load over here in Germany for every page I go on. Did anyone else experience the same thing? Tried multiple Browsers, multiple Computers, multiple German IPs at different ISPs and much more. The only thing that really helped was a US VPN for some reason, that cut the loading time in half for some reason.
