Preparing your trip to Kassel: advices & hints - things to do and to obey

Schloss Wilhelmsthal 1. It doesn’t matter what German city you plan to visit, you need to know about import limitations on some groups of products. For example, tourists from outside the European Union are not allowed importing more than 200 cigarettes, more than 1 liter of strong spirits, and more than two liters of alcoholic beverages with less than 22% of alcohol content. There are also limitations regarding tea, coffee, meat and dairy products, and even chocolate. Baby food is an exception.
2. Kassel is located in the part of the country where rules are very important and always observed. Always pay your attention to signs that prohibit or instruct doing something. A failure to follow these rules can often lead to unpleasant consequences in the form of fine or public disapproval. Both of these can make even a pleasant holiday less exciting.
3. Don’t forget that it is prohibited to throw litter on the streets or in public areas. It is a mistake to think that a small piece of paper or a cigarette stub will be left unnoticed. Even if a policeman doesn’t notice this, there can always be a pedantic passerby who will notify the authorities about the breach. This situation is likely to result in a fine that can be up to 100 euro.
4. Residents of Kassel are very careful when it comes to sorting their litter. Never mix your organic waste with a non-organic one. Tourists should follow locals and try to sort their waste as indicated.
5. It is prohibited to drink alcohol on the streets of the city. There are many bars and pubs in the city where visitors can drink alcohol, but make sure you don’t go with your alcohol outside, even if it is just an open bottle with a low-alcohol drink. By the way, policemen are allowed to stop everyone (tourists included) and ask him or her to pass the alcohol test. It is also prohibited to refuse to take this test. Copyright
6. Germans are very careful when it comes to personal boundaries. Even accidental touches are prohibited. A failure to keep personal boundaries is a serious breach in the country.
7. It is prohibited to make noise after 10 pm in Kassel. This is a local law, so a failure to follow the law is regarded as a petty crime. That being said, not only loud talking, shouting, and car beeping are considered noises but also the sound of suitcase’s wheels.
Kassel is a city with rich history and cultural traditions. A walk through the streets of the city can become an exciting adventure, because you will see interesting sights almost at every … Open
8. Traffic regulations in Kassel are the rules that are indisputably followed by everyone! Even if you walk late at night on an empty street and need to cross it, you must wait for the green light and only then cross it. If you are a driver, you must always stop at the red light even if there are no pedestrians nearby. Fines for the violation of traffic rules are quite high.
9. It is better to control the way you speak. Swear words are not common in public areas in Germany. Moreover, travelers need to keep in mind certain linguistic peculiarities in order not to make a blunder: an invitation to drink a cup of coffee is clearly an invitation to have sex for Germans.
10. Body language is also something that travelers need to take care of. It is recommended not to twist a finger at a temple and not to make the “OK” sign (thumb and point finger forming a circle) that is so usual for many nations. In Germany, these signs are considered vulgar and offensive.
11. Kassel is a green city that is very pleasant to explore on foot or by bicycle. This means that warm months are the best time to visit it (the period from May to September is considered the most comfortable). June, July and August are the warmest months with the average temperature rising to 23°C.
12. When packing a suitcase, it is better to take simple and casual clothes that are not too revealing. Locals can misunderstand short skirts and big décolleté. You are going to visit a provincial city that is quite conservative. Moreover, Germans prefer simplicity in everything. Clothing style is no exception.
13. Bicycle rental is a very comfortable way to move around the city. As a rule, there are many parking lots for rented bicycles in all neighborhoods of Kassel. There is no need to return the bike to the lot where you got it. It is enough to bring it to one of the lots that belong to the rental company. By the way, cycling excursions in Kassel are very interesting.
