    The beer is good, the women are reasonably pretty and the weather might be shit or it might not.

    But seriously, it's a nice country to visit. Where abouts are you heading?

    Guten Abend!

    Hope, i typed right! :) Its my first time to Germany- Munich. Do Germans speak proper english and like people who speak in english with them?

    P.S I heard German people are rude, sorry do not want to offend any one, some friends in the US said that.

    The womens look like cows if you ask me, but Berlin is like another big city in europe. You have ALOT to do if you enjoy walking - where in Germany are you traveling?

    German's aren't rude if you're not rude to them. Here in the UK people won't be rude if you don't say 'please' for example, but some will try to kill you. So depends much on the person as well :D

    I stayed in Munich for a few weeks some years ago, it is a beautiful city! Places you should totally visit are the BMW factory (quite amazing really), then get a beer here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hofbräuhaus_am_Platzl Nothing really beats the atmosphere of that place! Traditional huge mega awesome 'beer hall'. Dachau (a smaller town nearby) is known for the concentration camp, it was a quite gruesome experience to visit, but definitely worth the while.

    Can't figure out anything more now, do ask if you have more questions :D

    I will also visit Germany by the end of the month, exactly Berlin - Potsdam. I know Germans are cold and usually they don't speak English or they won't speak.
    Also there are also growing numbers of neonazi especially in Essen, they hate foreigners and will probably attack you if you look like one.
    But Berlin is an other story, its not a typical German city, there are lot of foreigners and its a typical world metropolis.

    Thanks for the heads up on the rudeness part. I saw pictures of the BMW HQ, looks very impressive.

    Yes, i am going to lay my hands on the best beer available.

    BTW, How is the weather like? I check the weather daily, its either cloudy,raining,sunny... all in one day.

    Danke.

    Need to speak at least little of German. I must say, it pleases the people, if you speak basic words in German.

    I was sending some emails to a female employee in a Corporate house in Germany for more than a month now. The day i greeted her in german in a email, she started to more casual in her business, greeting me back and putting smiles :) in a business email.

    IMO you never get to see smiles in a business email.

    2. Where do you get your informations from? Essen is far away from being a neonazi polluted City.

    I am german and I can tell you that you won't get attacked if you look like a foreigener. Especially in Munich, which is one of the richest cities in Germany.

    Where do "know" this crap from? Do you lived hereforsome time? Were you attacked? Or is "knowledge" you gotfrom TV or other people?

    I am a foreigner living 20 years in Germany and I never had problems. Yes maybe they hate foreigeners in villages, especially in east Germany, but foreigeners have been a part of the culture for more than 50 years, they helped to rebuild this country. In Hamburg for example 25% of 1,7 mil. population have a immigration background.

    They dont or wont speak English? Seriously? Most people can and will speak English and many people can speak it fluently. Hint: If people won´t speak to you, maybe its because of your character and not the language you speak. Think about it.

    I spoke with a lot of tourists, and not all of them like Germany (whhich i can understand), but none of them said anything similar to what you wrote.

    Seriously man, check your "knowledge" before insulting the citizens of one country and stating your prejudgements as they were facts.

    @ OP:

    The nicest cities are

    1. Berlin
    2. Hamburg
    3. Munich
    4. Cologne
    5. Dresden

    Generally you want to avoid the East and stay in one of the cities above. For beer I recommend a Weizen like "Paulaner". I heard from some tourists that German girls are the most beautiful girls and IM sorry to tell you, but thats a big lie. Also they are in the beginning colder than lets say US girls, but actually are pretty nice when you get to know them . For partying I recommend Electro or House parties. Hip Hop parties usually suck here.
