Traditions and Customs

Old customs, modern times.
See Germany differently.

Many of Germany's old traditions are still alive today. Centuries-old customs have been preserved and updated, and can make a unique contribution to your experience and enjoyment of the country.

Indulge yourself with culinary delicacies from a bygone age. Try out various regional specialities. Witness old-fashioned handicrafts whose charm is undimmed by the passage of time.

Go back in time to the dawn of pioneering discoveries – the car, the tram, the bicycle. Lose yourself in the crowd at festivals and markets and celebrate the survival of traditions that have passed down the generations.
