What cultural faux pas should I try to avoid making in Berlin?

Answer this Question

We asked people in Berlin if they could share any humorous cultural blunders they commited. For new expats, keep in mind that these incidents are an inevitable part of expat life. Learning to laugh about them is the key!...

"It is important to be aware of the cultural norms in Berlin. It is considered rude to be late for appointments or social engagements, so it is important to be punctual. It is also important to be respectful of the local customs and traditions, such as taking off your shoes when entering someone's home. Additionally, it is important to be aware of the local language and to avoid speaking English in public unless it is necessary. Finally, it is important to be aware of the local dress code and to dress appropriately for the occasion," said a member in Berlin, Germany.
