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

Answer this Question

We asked people in Hannover 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 cultural differences when visiting Hannover. To avoid making a cultural faux pas, it is important to be respectful of local customs and traditions. For example, it is considered rude to be late for appointments or social engagements, so it is important to be punctual. Additionally, it is important to dress appropriately for the occasion, as dressing too casually or too formally can be seen as disrespectful. It is also important to be aware of the local language and to avoid speaking too loudly in public. Finally, it is important to be aware of the local customs regarding physical contact, as some cultures may be more comfortable with physical contact than others," remarked another expat in Hannover, Germany.

"I accidentally asked for a bag of ice cream instead of a cup of ice cream. We all got a good laugh," said a member in Hannover, Germany.
