WHAT TO PACK?

what-to-pack
Camera - There’s a lot to see in Germany, so bring a good camera, or at the very least make sure there’s plenty of storage space on your phone.

Alka Seltzer - Whether it’s the hearty cuisine or the country’s 5000-plus beers, you’ll probably need them.

Comfortable walking shoes
- From checking out the many museums and attractions by day to partying into the wee hours in Berlin clubs, you're going to spend a lot of time on your feet.

Travel adapter & voltage converter - Appliances with built in transformers (e.g. Apple laptop power) are fine with European voltage, but plugging your 120V hairdryer into 240V will not end well! European hotels often have a 120V outlet, but be sure to check first. A voltage converter will come in handy, and a travel adapter plug is an essential for European style sockets.

German phrasebook - English is spoken very widely in Germany, but as with any foreign country people will appreciate it if you at least attempt to speak their language. A little effort goes a long way!
