Meet the Germans

10 expressions for traveling in Germany that you won't find in a guide book

Planning a trip to Germany? Then learn these useful expressions first. They might just be more helpful than your travel guide.

You've already learned to say "ein Bier, bitte" (a beer, please) and "wo is die Toilette?" (where's the restroom?), but that is only enough to get you drunk in Germany - which is not that far.

In this gallery, we've compiled some useful, real-life phrases that could come in handy when traveling in Germany, especially if you're young, hip and adventurous.

If you happen to be on the road during the summer months, the gallery below also provides some useful German terms that are suitable for the season.
