Germany Travel Tips

Germany Travel Tips

by Spencer Spellman @ TripIt Blog

It’s officially the start of fall—and the start of fall means one of the largest international events in the world, Oktoberfest. Kicking off in mid-September, Oktoberfest’s headlining event is in Munich, considered the world’s largest fair. However, other Oktoberfest celebrations take place throughout Germany, and beyond. So be it your first Oktoberfest, or planning a future trip to Germany, check out a few of my Germany travel tips below.   Travel with cash. If you’ve never been to Germany, then you may be surprised to discover how dependent it is on cash transactions. You aren’t going to be swiping your card or using Apple Pay like you may have in other European countries. But unless you have a bank that doesn’t charge fees or inflated rates, I’d recommend just getting cash out of a bank ATM upon arriving to Germany. However, don’t just carry all of that cash around your entire trip. Take advantage of your hotel room’s safe-deposit box (if it has one).   Tip 5 – 10 percent. Tipping in Europe isn’t like it is in America. A 15 – 20 percent tip, for example, is exorbitant. And Germany is no exception. Tipping is expected, but 5 – ...
