Travellers often underestimate the depth of cultural isolation they can face abroad, particularly in a country with a different language. To many people, Germany may seem a relatively easy option, with its long history of welcoming ‘guest’ workers, widely-spoken English and millions of visitors. However, sooner or later most newcomers find certain aspects of German life alien – and some come unstuck as a result. Culture Wise Germany will help you understand Germany and its people, and adapt to the German way of life. Most importantly, it will enable you to quickly feel at home.
