What else do I need to know when travelling to Germany?
EHIC: when travelling to Germany, you’ll need to bring your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) with you, which you can get free from the NHS. This gives you access to state-provided medical treatment you need during your trip on the same terms as German citizens.
Currency: the local currency in Germany is the euro.
Visa: if you are a British passport holder you won’t need a visa for visiting or working in Germany.
Tipping: while tipping is quite common in Germany, it’s only really done as a sign of appreciation, rather than expectation. As a rule of thumb, 5-10% tip at a restaurant is a reasonable tip.
