What's Germany Like?
Northern Germany begins with the marshy coasts of the North and Baltic Seas with ports like vibrant Hamburg, a city-state that is the second largest city in Germany and a center for commerce and media. The industrial area of the Rhine-Ruhr district near Dusseldorf is one of the nation's economic engines and leads further south to the scenic Rhine district, passing through the city of Heidelberg with it's old university and grand castle on the hill. As river winds south, its banks line with vineyards, castles and cathedrals like the striking medieval cathedral in Cologne. Southern Germany is characterized by the storied Black Forest and the Alps where both experienced and novice skiers will find luxurious accommodations and challenging runs. To the east, the capital city of Berlin features historic sites like the Brandenburg Gate and the site of the former Berlin Wall along with a thriving avant-garde arts scene. When it comes to accommodation, Germany hotels range from centuries old renovated castles to sleek modern skyscrapers.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Germany
In terms of culture, Germans are historically split along north-south lines. Northern Germany has traditionally been Protestant and hardworking in nature while the south is traditionally Catholic - and also hardworking but known to let loose a little more and is home to Oktoberfest celebrations and ornate baroque architecture. German society is highly polite and respectful conduct is expected of visitors too. Germans expect their streets to be clean, so littering and other behaviors common in much of the rest of the world are much frowned upon and children tend to be well behaved in public. English-speaking travelers will find that many Germans have at least a rudimentary knowledge of English, although it doesn't hurt to learn a few basic phrases.
