Customs & Hospitality

While many Americans eat only two meals a day, skipping breakfast or lunch, the Germans have only in modern times switched to three meals a day down from five! Coffee and pastries made up a second breakfast, while late-afternoon sausage and cheese dishes filled in until the evening smorgasbord-like meal.

Open-faced sandwiches are served frequently and are meant to be eaten with a knife and fork. Lunch is the biggest meal of the day, and these sandwiches make nice, lighter dinner fare. Or, you may try smoked eel, which is eaten with the fingers, over which the waiter will pour schnapps to remove the odor. If you love asparagus, visit Germany in the spring when whole platters of this delicacy are served at table.
