Southern Germany offers a scenic look at mountainous highs and historic lows - CT InsiderSunday, January 26, 2020
Here’s the great thing about Bavaria and southern Germany for visitors, aside from abundant history and scenery: Germans generally are direct, organized and go by the rules. That’s not just their rep; it’s what we observed.
On the famous Autobahn, they use the left lane to legally go as fast as they want but they slow down when the overhead signs drop the speed limit to 100 kilometers an hour, or even 70. They don’t weave and cut you off like the average highway here.
When they stack firewood in a shed, it’s done precisely, a work of art. If they’re growing apples, the limbs are staked neatly and verically on thin threes with netting above. With similar dedication to organization and standards, the beer they serve is inexpensive and consistently good (don’t ask for an IPA).
