    Just another add: don't ask for the bathroom; people who only have a very limited command of the English language will think you look for a place where you can take a bath (Badezimmer). Ask for the toilet (Toilette) instead; any German will understand that.

      Yes that's true. But after a few seconds of thinking, we understand, that you don't want to take a bath, because that would be to crazzy.

    The best thing about Germany is the statutory health insurance. There are no cover sums. If treatment is medically necessary, it is also paid for by the health insurance company. Normally every insured person has to pay a supplement of € 5 or € 10 for prescription medication. There are exceptions to this: if you are chronically ill, you only have to make 1% of your annual income for the additional payments, after which all prescription medications are free of charge. Furthermore, almost all courses at the university are free of charge, but only for some subjects are tuition fees charged. Germany is also a welfare state. If you have received benefits from the statutory unemployment insurance for more than a year, you get money from the job center. The job center is an authority that was formerly called the social welfare office. The rent for an apartment is covered with heating and for an individual there is also 420 € available. This is how you pay for electricity. Clothing and hygiene products and food. The contributions to the statutory health insurance paid entirely by the job center. If you have a job, employer and employee must share the employee's statutory health insurance contribution. I see myself as a German patriot and love this country more than anything. The Federal Republic of Germany cares about its people and helps when people have problems. All social achievements are regulated in the Social Codebook 1 to 10. Most people like to pay social security contributions to the state because they know exactly when I am in need the social benefits me. Children are also supported by the state in Germany. Child benefit in Germany is a transfer benefit based on family policy and part of the family benefit equalization. It is intended as a tax allowance to exempt the child's subsistence minimum from income tax and is a social benefit insofar as it goes beyond this tax exemption required by the constitution. The amount is graded according to the number of children and is currently at least 204 euros minimum.

    I have been living in Hannover, Germany for the past 7 years moving when I was 10 from New Jersey. In Germany it really depends of if you can pay with card, most stores and restaurants you can, typically only smaller business will not have cards, like mom and pop shops, and single location stores like nail salons (that aren't chains), some flower shops, and bakeries. Also with the athletic clothes it is become more and more popular and acceptable to wear athleisure clothing e.g adidas track suits.

    Don´t be loud on public transportation. That is a rule that can be enforced, you can be thrown off, if it gets out of hand. But in general loud people are just telling everyone: I´m an idiot, I do not care about other people, I am rude and I have no manners. Good luck with that attitude.

    To the 2nd point -> Yes, german people don't really like it when other are too loud in the U-bahn but you can still talk with your friends
    4th point -> I live in germany & i walked on cobble stone in heels, still you can wear heels without a problem in most of the newer streets, it depends on where you are
    6th -> I can add, that there will always be at least one person around who you can ask for help, if it's too hard or you want to be sure to figure out how you can get somewhere
    9th -> thats cute :3 But the best bread is the real fresh one! (Funfact: I am not a real bread fan XD)

    Unter Freunden kann man schon den einen oder anderen naziwitz machen, is komisch wenn es von touris kommt weil man halt nich weiß wie die darauf reagieren wenn man auch nen Witz dazu macht
    Aber damn ich fänd das schon respektlos wenn mich jmd der aus nem ganz anderen Land kommt fragt wie die Geschichte meiner familie im Zusammenhang mit dem Krieg war
    So ich mein wenn ich die Geschichten von damals überhaupt kenne dann sind das Sachen die höchstens in der Familie einmal erzählt wurden aber da würde ich doch auch nicht mit anderen deutschen drüber reden..
    Oder bin ich einfach komisch in der Hinsicht?

    Cash is king at pay. Don't forget that Germany had 6 currencies in 100 years. Somehow the collective mind still remembers the 1920s where a loaf of bread was 2 Million Marks at 9am and 343 Million Marks at 2pm. People back then paid literally with a carriage full of cash money.

      Currency 1: Reichsmark, about 1910 Currency 2: Deutsche Mark (inflation money) 1920s Currency 3: Reichsmark of the Nazis in the 1930s and 140s Currency 4: West Germany's Deutsche Mark / East Germany's Deutsche Mark from 1949 to 1993 Currency 5: Reformed Deutsche Mark from 1993 to 2002 Currency 6: Euro from 2002 to present.

    6:49 - right. We Germans also stop a t a red light in the middle of nowhere at night. One of the reasons why is that they have surveillance cams on the traffic lights in some areas.

    One interesting aspect: Germany works contraverse from other countries. A tourist will notice how by moving by public transport out from city centers to the outskirts and suburbs, one still finds an excellent infrastructure (and a vast availability of services and products) though being out in the green.
    This comes from the fact that more affluent families prefer to live in the suburban areas where nature is cleaner and greener, you have way less or almost zero crime rate, no prostitution, no homeless or rubbish or drugs. It is seen as a safe place to rause your kids.
    Naturally, the suburban areas are populated by hugher income achievers and hence having a well-developed infrastructure with good hotels and high class restaurants makes perfectly sense there. Plus, it is even more likely to encounter celebrities and to find horse riding, golf courts and race tracks or forrests for hiking.
    The more you move towards the city center, the lower the income. However, there are some parts in the city center where you have the business districts. This is where the folks are actually doing their daylight jobs before heading home in the evening to the suburban area.
    In the very same business districts, you also find younger people who still want to achieve their place in the green and students. So your chance to make some amazing and or interesring friends is quite high.

      When you spoke about the public transports amd not be too loud: some of these people taking a ride out of the city parked their cars at a station further outside and will continue from there by car. Traffic in the city is seen as a madness with up to 3 lanes insode the city per direction and lots of vehicles being on the road.

    We actually have a card culture in Germany, but it's not the credit card. Before credit cards were common in Germany most shops allready accepted our Girocard, which we use to get money from the bank. It has nearly the same function to the credit card. But you have a point many Germans love cash. Nur Bares ist Wahres.

    Adittion on rule No 10. We are still sending 90 year old People to Prison for working as guards in concentration camps. Sending them on their last court trail for what has happnend in the holocaust. Making them pay for what they have done. Pretty dumb shit over here.
