I have an important question. I am going to visit Germany, and I don't want to look like a tourist. What do most college kids in Germany wear?

Probably the same shit as they wear in the rest of the western world....

I have this shirt with the stars and stripes and the text "freedom forever", i would wear that.

In the end, wear what you normally wear, if they are hassling you because of it, they are fucking idiots, and if you change because of their hasseling, then you are one to.

Make sure to wear a fanny pack, have a camera around your neck and wear tons of sports paraphernalia, jerseys, and bandannas.


Pretty sure most Europeans dress rather formally compared to the way most Americans dress, but not necessarily like always wearing suits and shit. As long as you wear normal clothes without corporate logos and stupid sayings on them, you'll blend in just fine. Of course, I have no basis in saying this, so either way, you should probably ignore me.

Everybody I have ever known that has gone to Europe seems to support this idea. Apparently, they're stand-offish to North Americans at first, but will warm to you almost immediately when they see the maple leaf.

Just what I've heard, anyways.

My brother and sister used to live in London and the few times I've visited them everyone there seems to think that all Americans are stereotypical cowboys. And if you aren't wearing boots and a cowboy hat and say yall they assume you are Canadian.

At least thats the impression I got, but i don't really know if its similar at all in Germany.

Quoted from ice:

Northern Austria and Southern Germany. Salzburg and Munich. We fly into Austria, and then end leave out of some tiny airport north of Ausburg.

I'll make sure to leave the dumb print t-shirts and baseball caps at home.

Anyway, I think I have a maple leaf t-shirt an ex girlfriend gave to me around here somewhere, I'll be sure to bring it. And I'll just tell them I'm from Winnipeg as it's the only place in Canada I've actually been.

I hope my bags don't end up in Australia. I'm thinking that the idiots who sort bags are stupid enough to mix Austria and Australia up.

First, and this might sort of sound stupid, but you're going to a pretty German part of Germany. Don't jaywalk, don't cut in line, don't drink in the street unless you see Germans doing it, don't do any of that shit, because the southern German police are fairly authoritarian and they'll give you shit for it.

Second, stupid print t-shirts are the norm, especially for clubbing and stuff. I don't really know about going to university and stuff in the south, and I've heard it's a little more formal, but for going clubbing just try to look like you shop at H&M and it will be fine.

The Canadian shirt idea is stupid, no one cares if you're American or not, unless you're a jackass about it.

It's really too bad that you're going to south Germany because it's pretty conservative and boring down there, it's a little like going to America and eschewing California and the Northeast for like Georgia, the Carolinas, and a trip up to Minnesota. I'm sure you'll find fun stuff to do, but it's going to be hard to find stuff to do on weeknights and Sunday (when I went to Muenchen we were looking for something to drink on a Saturday night before we went out, and so we were walking around and found some guy, and we asked him if he knew a store that was still open where we could buy alcohol, and he looked at his watch and said "At 7:00 on a Saturday night? I don't think so!!" like it was the most logical thing in the world).

Also, for the sake of your German classmates at home, try not to pick up the accent, because really! it's impossible to understand sometimes

Are the Bavarians the ones who say 'ik', or the ones who say 'isch'? I always forget.

Anyway, I think American tourists are OK. Sure, most people dislike the US government, but Americans themselves are vaguely fascinating to Europeans, as long as they're not jackasses (the American tourists, I mean).

old Bavarians say something like 'eee', but the young ones say 'eesch', which is fairly normal. it's just that their accent is fucked up and they use strange words. Berliners say 'ik', and also I think people from the far northwest of Germany, though I've never been there.

People from northwest, aka. Friesland have a fucking funny accent, check out the Werner cartoons

Most people outside Bavaria don't really like it, i think they are like what texas is in the US.....and they have a fucking wierd acccent, but so have the swiss....in the german version of the simpsons; Uter is supposed to be swiss...



My mom comes from Duisburg, which is in "The Pot", and no really any extraordinary accents from there i think

Does anyone speak English in Bayern?

I know no one does in eastern Germany, not even at places where you'd expect them to, like train stations.
And when you ask them if they do, they often seem angry about it.

Also, most college kids in Bayern wear lederhosen all the time, so if you want to blend in you'd better get some.

That's not totally true. You guys have spent the past half a decade pissing off the rest of the world and invading countries. You also re-elected a power-hungry idiot.

Even if people don't "hate Americans", generally Canada has a pretty good image internationally.
It's not a stupid idea at all. I've heard many stories of people (Canadian and American) wearing the Maple Leaf and having people overseas treat them better as a result.

I guess you would know better since you're the one current living in Germany right now. Oh wait. You're just up there in Canadia being a jackass. Your opinion matters a lot.

I'm pretty sure being an American is kind of a cool novelty, especially if you're young and hang around with local kids and drink with them and things.
Girls will be interested in you.

Being a fat old tourist probably isn't as cool.

We do dislike America as a country though.

Wheezy pretty much already addressed this, but most people have the brainpower to separate American international policy from the people living there. Especially Germans, really, they've got it the worst of all.

When was the last time we invaded any Western European countries? Oh yeah, WW2. We're such assholes for having done that.

ps. Weren't Canadian forces also in Afghanistan? Curious.
