1. The Food
The sausage capitol of the world, Germany is loaded with rich, decadent foods. From encased meats and pastries to authentic schnitzel, Germany is a place for foodies and the champions of taste buds.
2. The Beer
The German Beer Purity Laws of 1516 are still used today, ensuring that a) German beer conforms to traditional methods, and b) it’s delicious. While you won’t find some of the wild IPAs or experimental brews gaining popularity in North America, you will find some of the most delicious and classic beers in the world.
Germany has one of the best economies in Europe–and the whole world, for that matter. A good economy means a stable country and a stable country means less poverty, violence and danger.
4. Low Unemployment
This goes hand-in-hand with the economy. Germany takes many steps to assure unemployment is low, including offering many apprenticeships for the youth which can start them on a career path.
5. Worker’s Protection
There’s a lot of incentive to work in Germany as worker’s have fantastic rights, working lower hours than the US and UK, experiencing less lay-offs, and having fantastic unemployment wages if a lay off occurs.
6. Travel options
As Germany is located in the center of Europe, traveling to other regions of the continent becomes much easier: Go south and you’re in Switzerland or Italy; North and you’re in Copenhagen; Southeast Greece and Turkey; Northwest, UK and Ireland.
7. The Sites
Of course, you don’t even have to leave Germany to find amazing places to visit. Rich in history, geography, and architecture, Germany has a wide abundance of places to visit and experience.
8. Need for Speed
Germany is home to the Autobahn, the most famous speed-limitless road in the world. It’s filled with many chances for car and bike enthusiasts to put their vehicles to the limit. And it doesn’t hurt that they also make some of the best cars and bikes to explore these roadways with.
In Germany it is actually illegal to open shop on Sundays–other than the few select Sunday’s allowed by the government. This means everyone is entitled to a day of rest, relaxation or fun.
10. Public Transportation
Getting around in Germany is both convenient and relatively cheap when using public transportation. Their rail systems are extensive, comfortable, fast and inexpensive when compared to many other major countries in Asia, Europe or the US.
