I did my bachelor study in Hong Kong. Afterwards, I worked for 2 years in Hong Kong, then headed over to Germany and finished my master degree there.
Should you expect someone to do something for you on your birthday, or should you be doing something for the others on your birthday? In this post, I will show you what you should expect when having your birthday in Germany.
Do you know that cultural difference plays a role on if you should celebrate before or after your birthday?
When I was studying in Germany back then, I went to a birthday celebration of a German friend. The party started in the evening before her birthday and lasted until the middle of the night.
One thing I like about eating out in Germany is that you can separate your bill. Yes you can separate the bill! In a very unproblematic way.
Should you tip when eating out in a restaurant in Germany?
Yes! Most people do tip a bit.
So the second question would be: how much should you tip?
