What To Expect When Traveling To Germany

I visited Germany while studying abroad to head to the famous Oktoberfest. I also spent a few days in Munich before the festival and partying started so got to know the city well. Germany has a TON of culture and there are so many places to visit – I am already planning my next trip to go to Berlin (super high on my bucket list) and maybe another Oktoberfest soon 🙂


Germany is on the Euro so it makes it easy when you’re traveling in Europe! $1 USD is equal to about .80 Euros (at this moment).


German, of course!

Other Tips When Visiting Germany

  • Heading to Frankfurt? Check out the best ways to spend a day in Frankfurt!
  • Travel Insurance: When visiting Germany, I highly recommend getting travel insurance. You never know what may happen to your flights, a death/personal emergency in your family, or an accident happening while traveling (think: getting mugged, falling while hiking and spraining your ankle, literally any accident than can happen ANYWHERE!). World Nomads makes it super easy and I never leave for a trip without getting their insurance. Most importantly it’s extremely affordable: get your World Nomads travel insurance before your trip here!
