Germany is synonymous with a plethora of things – awesome beer, delicious food, delectable sausages, lush greenery, majestic castles and so much more. It has a unique and distinctive set of cultural quirks and traditions, which make Germany an amazing country to visit. There is a vibrant, international art and music scene in Berlin, mystical forests in the west, and grand cathedrals and picturesque cities in the south. This history-filled region has so much to offer and you are certain to fall in love with it.
Be sure to take your time as there is a lot to see. Berlin is filled with world-class museums and quirky neighborhoods, and has some of the best nightlife in Europe. If you prefer something more tranquil, head to Berlin’s upscale quiet cousin, Munich. It is steeped in history with small quiet streets, great beer halls, a royal palace and beautiful parks. If you happen to be there during Oktoberfest, you are in for a treat! Get some giant pretzels, wear lederhosen, raise your glass and sing along (if you can) to German songs. Get your Schengen visa and go on epic adventures such as hiking in the Black Forest. Named after its beautifully dark green pine trees this forest is best seen in the fall, and there are hundreds of miles of hiking trails worth exploring.
In Germany, carrying cash is essential as cards have very little power. Things like Apple Pay won’t work because the locals still prefer using cash for just about everything. Germans are also big on recycling so be sure to look out for large recycling bins on the street sorted by color (green, brown and white) when you need to throw stuff out. Also, beer and plastic bottles can be returned for Pfand (a deposit paid when you initially purchase the drink) and it can range from 6 to 25 cents. You can find Pfand returns at grocery stores, usually near the cash register. Speaking a little German will help and it’s surprisingly easy to pick up. Just as we tend to pepper our sentences with ‘lah’, sprinkle some ‘na?’ in and it will be sure to spark conversations with the locals. Book trains early and save 40-50% off the normal fare or make the most of free tours when you want to go around the city. Along the way, be sure to stop at street vendors and buy some delicious bratwurst.
