Interesting Facts To Know About German Culture

The German pride for many things such as their beer, design, art, fashion, architecture, technology and scientific achievements is pretty much unrivalled. There are certain aspects of German culture such as their love for precision and punctuality that are quite well known world over. But there are many more cultural nuances, customs and traditions that are we not so familiar with.

Today we will unravel some of the interesting and lesser known quirks about German culture and customs. It will help you to be better prepared and understand exactly what to expect when you travel to the country. Being aware of these pretty amazing and fun facts can also help you to avoid cultural pitfalls and conduct yourself in a socially acceptable manner when visiting Germany.

Fact #1: Oktoberfest Begins In September

Germany’s famous Oktoberfest that is claimed to be the world’s largest beer drinking festival,   held in Munich every year, does not take place in October. In fact by the 2nd or 3rd of October it is all over. While many countries now hold their own Oktoberfest celebrations, if you wish to attend the original Oktoberfest in Germany you should arrive in Munich latest by mid-September.     

Fact #2: Germans Start off Young on Wine and Beer

In Germany the legal drinking age is 16 and not 18 which is what is followed in most other European countries. While being permitted to drink legally in Germany at such a young age may surprise many there is a rider. This age is applicable on wine and beer mostly and not on all types of liquor. You still need to be 18 to be eligible to buy and consume hard liquor in Germany.

Fact #3: Trees are the Keepers of Lost and Found Items

This one is really sweet. You know how there usually is a lost and found box kept in schools and many public places? Well in Germany people use trees to hang lost items that they come across as they feel it will be easier to spot on a tree if the owner returns looking for it. Isn’t that a kind and caring thought? If you dropped a scarf, keys or maybe a hat while walking down a path, try walking back the same way while scanning all the tree branches along the path with a keen eye.

Fact #4: Deutschland Was Once Part of the Holy Roman Empire

Many of the modern-day German cultural traditions and customs have been shaped by the various powers that ruled over the country during its long and rich history. A lot of the stunning architecture and stately buildings in Germany bear testimony to this. Also the fact that majority of Germans are Christians. One is bound to see influences of the mighty Roman Empire of which Germany was once an important part.  

Fact #5: Germans Love Bread

Germany has a long tradition of making bread and the Germans take great pride in it. Bread forms a staple diet of Germans and is the best accompaniment to their rich and hearty cuisine which has a lot of ‘wurst’ or sausage preparations, potatoes and many types of meat.
