We asked expats and digital nomads what they appreciate the most about the local culture in Germany. They wrote...

"Expats in Germany generally appreciate the country's efficient public transport system, generous vacation days, and excellent health care. They often appreciate the opportunities for cultural immersion, from food and festivals to well-preserved historic sites. The friendly and welcoming people also stand out to many expats. Expats often note that the Germans typically have a strong work ethic and value their free time highly. This sense of responsibility and appreciation of culture and recreation is attractive to many expats," wrote a member who made the move to Germany.

"I have type 1 diabetes and I was absolutely blown away by how amazing it was. I cannot say enough about this. My wife and I also did in-vitro fertilization, pregnancy and post-natal experience and it cost us 100 euros for the whole thing - with great results. I appreciated the emphasis on recycling, public transport was efficient (we didn't need cars), everything was in walking distance for us, and it was easy to navigate everything in English," explained one expat living in Hannover, Germany.
