Garefrekes made her debut for German national team in November 2001 in against the Netherlands. Two years later, she won her first major international title at the 2003 FIFA Women's World Cup. She was an important player for the team, starting in five of the team's six matches and scoring four goals. Garefrekes scored Germany's first and ultimately decisive goal in the semi-final win over the United States. She went on to win the bronze medal at the 2004 Summer Olympics and the title at the 2005 European Championship. In qualifying for the UEFA Women's Euro 2009, she scored a number of goals, including a hat-trick in Germany's 7–0 defeat of Switzerland.

During Germany's successful title defence at the 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup, Garefrekes was part of the team's starting line-up in all of the six matches. She scored twice, including the opener in the quarter-final victory against North Korea. Garefrekes again claimed bronze at the 2008 Summer Olympics and won the European Championship for a second time in 2009. She has been called up for Germany's 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup squad. A few months before the start of the World Cup, she scored a hat trick in a friendly match against Nigeria. Following the tournament she retired from international play.
