Summary
Do you want to blend in when visiting Berlin? To feel like you belong in Bavaria? When in Germany, Do as the Germans Do makes it simple! If you long to navigate the narrow streets of an Alpine village unnoticed or go to a movie in Munich without turning heads, transform yourself from a typical tourist into a connoisseur of culture. With this crash course in German customs and heritage, you'll avoid embarrassing blunders and enrich your travel experiences. Packed with 120 articles, this handy collection of cultural dos and don'ts covers a broad range of topics, including food, art, pop culture, politics, business, entertainment, home life, history, and education. In these pages, you'll find authoritative answers to questions such as: At a restaurant, should I find my own table or wait to be seated? What is a suitable topic for small talk with a stranger in Germany? What is the fastest train service in Germany? How many varieties of sausage are there? What is the unofficial division between north and south Germany called? How do Germans usually pay online purchases? What is the main emergency number to call in Germany?
