Duisburg 1. Do not forget to leave tips in restaurants and cafes of the city. As a rule, the size of tips depends on the total amount of your order. If your order is 5 euros or more, the size of tips should be 7 - 10% of it. In case your order is less than 5 euros, the final due sum should be rounded up to full euro.
2. The city is distinguished by a well-developed public transport system. Buses can easily get you to any part of the city. Tourists, who expect to use public transport a lot, are recommended to buy a special ticket pass or tourist pass as they will help to save.

As a rule, stores start serving visitors at 9:00 am - 10:00 am and are open until 19:00 - 20:00. Fans of shopping should not forget to visit the city during Christmas holidays, as the range of goods sold at this time of year is simply amazing. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
