German regulations and rules

There are a lot of regulations in Germany and yes you might get frustrated by some of them…. but you will appreciate them at the end, believe me! I am working in a court doing my Praktikum and I can tell you that the court system is far from perfect ;-)…well...

Germany: The place to be?

According to the report published by InterNations, in the Quality of Life Index, Germany ranks ninth overall, owing to its transport infrastructure, safety, and healthcare. The obvious drawback is the German climate, with over one-third of expats (36%) feeling dissatisfied with the weather, compared to 22% globally. However, the natural environment...

The German quality

After having lived in Frankfurt for more than 10 years, I do strongly believe that most Germans tend to be perfectionists! They like to analyse things from all angles… Thus, German goods and services are excellent, however, a bit expensive and not so modern.

Great German organisation!

My name is Anna (originally from Moscow, Russia) and I am a PhD student in Heidelberg. Before coming to Germany, I had applied to many european universities and only in Germany I got a very good scholarship to acquire a PhD in biology and bioinformatics. I’m enjoying every day of...

Advice on moving to Germany

We asked many multicoolties what advice they would give to newcomers moving to Germany. Here’s what they said… 😉 “First thing first, learn the language! Just learning a little bit makes your life infinitely easier. You’ve got to embrace new changes, traditions, and learn to interact with others. Germany is...

French lightness to life!

What do you miss most  about Germany living in France? Some small things…mostly food 😉 for example, Toffiffee, Koppers chocolate, sausages  … and Easter time! In Germany it is a tradition to making “egg” bouquets with forsythia. In France…those are impossible to find! What surprises you most about the French culture? It’s...

You can be whoever you want to be

In Berlin you are free, you can be whoever you want to be. There are clearly less barriers and you’re at least given a chance to try out something new. There are not so many prewritten social conventions and many different ways of life are widely accepted. As you have...

Building fences is not a solution

My name is Julia and, though I’m German, my husband keeps telling me that I’m more French since I was born on the “left side of Rhine river” in Palatinate. I lived in Berlin for five years and now I’m living in Brandenburg where you can still sense the differences...

Ten years later, my ambition is still the same!

Driven by my passion for discovering new cultures, and as an expatriate myself for several years, I launched the Expat Blog project in 2005. At this time, I was looking for information on the Internet about living and working abroad, especially in the UK and in Spain. I realized that very few websites...

The concept of nation state needs an overhaul

There are certain realities in the world we just have to deal with. I don’t think there is any viable alternative to having pluralist diverse societies. ‘Multiculturalism’ is just a word, a word we place too much importance on. There is a heated debate in Germany on whether German society...

Less discipline and more creativity

The general rule for all aspects of German society – Ordnung muss sein – shouldn’t be taken so seriously. Sometimes less discipline and more creativity ought to be considered. Just picture the life in Germany afterwards.
