11. Never Drink Without a Toast
Germans often enjoy a drink, and the country is famous for its beer scene and café culture. However, it is considered bad form to take the first sip without first giving a toast. Usually a toast is as simple as saying “Prost” (cheers!) and knocking together your glasses with others in your company before drinking. However, make sure to keep eye contact when toasting, since not doing so is believed to bring bad luck.
