Wine and Beer
The range of beer varieties is enough to make
your head spin without drinking a drop.
Even alkoholfreies Bier (non-alcoholic beer) has
grown in popularity in Germany; but light beers
have been slow to find a market.
In Germany, Pils (Pilsner) is the most popular
beer variety, with Export taking a distant second.
No matter which variety, Germany’s strict purity
law, the Reinesbot, dating back to 1516, dictates
that German beer may contain no ingredients
other than hops, malt (barley), yeast, and water.
Health and Fitness

enjoy a high level of health care.
• Most Europeans are accustomed to
socialized, cradle-to-grave health care
paid for by the employer, employee, and
• In Germany, the average employee salary
contribution is about 13 percent.
Europeans, including the Germans, have
traditionally tended to regard filmmaking as an
art rather than a business.
Because the resulting European films are
often limited-budget, intellectually challenging
productions that lack the Hollywood big-star,
action/blockbuster formula, their mass appeal
has been limited.
Franka Potente, born in 1974, is one of
Germany's most promising young film actors
After studying acting in Munich and New
York City, she made her first big splash on
screen in 1998 as Lola in the international
hit movie Run, Lola, Run.
• She must have made a big impression on
Hollywood: In 2001, she played opposite
Johnny Depp in her first U.S. movie,
Blow, and since then has played in other
major American productions.
• As soon as I saw her picture I
recognised her straight away because I
had watched a movie with her in it
called the Bourne Idenity.
Now that you have seen everything
about Germany, why don’t you jump on a
computer and start researching?
