Germany knowledge

Generally when you come to Germany you should prepare yourself for some things, maybe the biggest difference compared to Finland is that here you have to pay by cash basically everywhere. And it’s also common to give some service money in restaurants, usually from 5% to 10% of original price. All the prices are quite same than in Finland, only exception is prices in restaurants which are usually much cheaper than in Finland. Otherwise living in Germany is not so different than in Finland, some things are more complicated and some more simple here. Public transportation works pretty well, which is surprise because people in Germany love their cars. I think that is one thing Finland should learn from Germany, roads are really good, people use their cars really much and still the public transportation also works really well. So you have always basically only good options to go from place to another.
