8 Great Things to Love in Germany

We’ve lived in Germany for a year now, and we’re ready to give our host nation a shout-out for doing these things really well. The following are our 8 great things to love in Germany.

1. Beer and Beer Gardens

History of beer making in Germany goes back to the monasteries in the first millennium, and Germans are still masters at the craft of brewing beer. They also offer beer gardens nestled into forest settings, often with a playground for the kids.

2. Cars

Engineering, manufacturing, and pride as a craftsman are very important here. Undoubtedly, Germany produces great cars with powerful engines, and we enjoy seeing the different models available here.

Farmers Markets are indeed a staple in each neighborhood, with seasonal fruits, vegetables, gourds, flowers, olives, and homemade pastas and breads.

7. Public Transportation

Not only clean but also mostly reliable city trains, long-distance trains, and buses are available at a reasonable cost. The option to take public transportation here is great for not having to find parking, and no chance of drinking and driving.
