What are the best and funniest examples of German behaviour that you have seen ?

Here's one.

OK, it was the early to mid 1970s. We would be out 'on the pop'.

Went into the discos and the like, where boozing and dancing used to go on.

Very similar to the UK......................and then!

The DJ would play some of what I now know as 'schlager music'.

My God !

You would get trampled in the rush.

The dance floor filled up in seconds to capacity, as all the Germans commenced to do the Foxtrot!

Never seen the like in the world ever.


Here is an example of the type of stuff that the 'foxtrotters' loved;





Surely they don't still do the foxtrot, or do they ?

What was that other ZDF show around that time, was it "Musik Laden" ?

There'd be a studio full of extremely respectable teenagers, clapping politely in time to such drivel as that in Pete26's clip.

Another German attitude was waiting for a bus.

Bloody hell !

A few years ago when my daughters were very young we were in Maspalomas market, Gran Canaria (1994).

My daughters were pushed aside even though were extremely young (9 and 11). But I had explained to them about an aspect of Germans I didn't like. They don't queue up!

I told my daughters to use their elbows and to use very robust language (OK it was swearing, but they didn't know the meanings) and it kept 'them' back from pushing. German women seemed to be the worst.

Just try going to a resort with a German group in attendance - pool manners non existent
At about 6 am the day the tour group arrived their Gruppenleiter puts towels and blankets on all the available poolside seats effectively denying all others their use .. that lasted one day for me in Thailand, the second day I went round after him took all the towels and blankets off the seat and piled them in the kids paddling pool. Seemed to have worked, lots of chairs available after that.

Hi there,
On exercise in the mid 80's. Tanks parked all over this village. Those of us not on stag in the local pub. A few of us stayed there until dawn...............then the local baker invited us into the bakery for breakfast..........great guy. On another exercise, in another pub a few of us became friends with some locals...............we got invited to shower in there houses.
I found most Germans friendly and welcoming.
There was some arrogence and rudeness around...........but we just gave as good as we got !!
BAOR / BFG........gone but not forgotten.

I would agree with that Pinky, the majority of Germans that I came into contact with during my 16 years in Germany were friendly, welcoming and helpful. Odd one or two were the opposite but, you get that in any Society. I think the Germans were sad to see the demise of BAOR/BFG. Very Happy

I sensed the Germans warmed to us Brits, as the years passed. (Not the case in Paderborn though).They certainly seemed pleased if we tried to communicate with them in their own language. Even so, it wasn't until I lived in Hemer, that I felt they were particularly friendly.

Getting on to your latest avatar obscura, I thought I was the only one on the planet who'd seen "Klimbim" (I allways thought it was Klimbims but no matter).
It was a sort of German version of our "Tiswas" wasn't it ? Very sexy blonde in it.
Cool

Yes, I forgot about Paderborn!! Klimbim was a sort of German copy of "Rowan and Martins Laugh In", the blonde girl had a penchant for showing us her Busten. You will probably find something on You Tube.

Not too many in my day - discipline was stronger, MP patrols and the dreaded Guard Room to get by. Most of our drinking was in the NCO's Club or the NAAFI, and of course our pay in the 50's was nothing like todays, especially for the NS lads.

Looking at your "battle honours" Pete, "thousands of drunkards", "Hohne" ?
Surely not !

Actually, they have a similar thing in the Netherlands to this day. In Amsterdam it's called "Amsterdamse" or "Hollandse" elsewhere. It's a bit like all your worst Eurovision ballads of the 70s rolled into one, sometimes with a touch of Volkstümliche Musik just to get the party swinging.

At a certain time of night, the manager will wind up the bar sound system and the locals, from octogenerian, to dribbling drunk, to screaming queen, to heavily pierced teenage goth will link arms and 'gie it laldy' to Andre Hazes or similar.

Completely impenetrable to most Brits.
