Germany may be a first introduction to Europe for some visitors. They might not realize the subtle differences that exist in their culture. Here are some suggestions for how to travel to Germany.
* Germany has adopted Euro as its national currency to allow for easy trade across its borders. Virtually any financial institution worldwide will be equipped to handle currency exchanges. Credit cards, particularly in the U.S. are less accepted than in other countries. Therefore it is important to plan ahead.
* A different style of electrical outlet is one of the first things that travelers notice when they enter a German hotel room. German outlets, which are higher than American 110 Volts, produce more power. While adapters are available, you’d be much better off bringing along a regulator with an interchangeable connector. The increased voltage flowing to your electronic device can cause serious malfunctions if it is not properly controlled. This is especially true for fragile electronics such laptops.
* Talking of laptops, it is important to be able to get online while on vacation to Germany. Americans have come to accept a flat-rate for unlimited access to the Internet. However, German ISPs generally charge per minute. Wi-Fi service can be found in many hotels. They are often charged at a daily, weekly or monthly rate. Wi-Fi is definitely the best choice for web access, since it requires an adaptor. Ask about the rates and availability at the hotel’s reception before plugging in. The long distance rates of many German hotels are quite impressive!
* If your GSM provider is available, your phone could work in Germany. If it doesn’t, you might be out of luck. T-Mobile has, along with Verizon and Cingular in recent years, moved to GSM technology to meet trans-Atlantic customer needs. Get information from your carrier regarding availability.
* If the U.S. has a large metropolitan area, you may be familiar to the problem that many Germans have with parking. Parking is a major problem in Germany, especially if you’re renting a car. You need to pay attention to tolls as well as narrow streets, one-way streets, pedestrians, and there are plenty of them. Germany’s public transportation system has been rated as one of the best around the globe. It will often be more affordable than renting your car so it is worth taking the train wherever possible to avoid any potential stress.
