I've actually heard that quite a few times, ScottishLaddie - the "ugly sounding language"... though, for somewhat obvious reasons, I don't share the thought...

Then again, hearing people speak in those atrocious accents from Bavaria, Saxony or Berlin... I'm with you... Big grin

But to get back to the vote in progress here - put my vote into the "yes" column.

P.S.: It would interest me somewhat, why people don't like Germany - don't worry, at least I won't tear you apart for giving your reasons... I'd just like to know.

Well I've been to Germany.. 4 times.. Berlin twice and Frankfurt an Berlin once..

I really didn't like the countries "way".. didn't like most of the people, although some were very nice.. I don't like the culture of Germany and the history between the UK & Germany isn't that great.. maybe I should move on a bit and start living in the 21st century.. but for some reason I can't with Germany.. I really don't like the place!

Accent wise.. I can't stand it.. sounds awful.. I take German in school (couldn't take Italian as it wasn't in the correct column for my option subjects..) an I thought it best to take a German language..

My german teacher makes the country sound so much better than anywhere in the world when there are so many things wrong with it.. she never mentions the fact that Germany is literally in a recession, high unemployment and so on... She always compares it to the UK and how much better it is.. when really they are no better!

That's why I dislike Germany!

P.S. My GF loves Germany and the accent.. can't have everything, eh?

BTW, the only thing positive about Germany is that I met my GF there on a school trip...

CM

I love it. I went on vacation there and had the best time. The food and drink were really good and cheap too. The people were nice, it was safe to walk around at night and there weren't pan handlers all over the cities like there are in Rochester. Probably due to a much better mental health system.

Unfortunately, despite my German born mother and my proximity to Germany (2/3 kilometers), I still don't speak fluently in German. I have to work on it.

But Germany is wonderful: great beers, nice food though not as good as French one, very nice towns, cute and designed for the people with many parks for the kids.
I'd say the worst problem is that nobody speaks French  Smile/happy/getting dizzy But that's the same problem in France for Germans (even worse).

I was in Frankfurt just a couple of days ago, and I do like it. I overnight there about 5 times a year or so, and I like that it is clean, everything works, the food is good, the airport,taxis,and hotels are great. Of course, I also work in a country where none of the above statements apply, so the contrast is noticeable. Overall, my impression of Germany is very favourable.

I grew up in Schweinfurt while the protests against that plant in Grafenrheinfeld were going on. Another example of the bavarian government pushing through a corruption-riddled project against the population...

But I´m glad you liked it there. It´s a very nice region, indeed; (As long as you can overlook the nuclear monster, that is.  Wink/being sarcastic)

I love Germany! Have been there twice. Such a beautiful country and the people are great. I'd have to say my three favorite cities/towns in Germany would have to be Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Dinkelsbuhl, and Heidelberg. Rothenburg is great for shopping and the city itself has an interesting history. And Munchen...oh my god, what a city! Munich at night just can blow you out of the water. Bad Bruckenau is absolutely fabulous to stay overnight in as well...have a great picture from when we stayed at the Dorint in Bad Bruckenau and it has "Bad Hotel" on the crest. Obviously it was the exact opposite though, Dorint's are top of the line. I'm of German descent so I have cultural ties to the country. Can't wait to get back to das Mutterland!

"Ja, äh nein, ich mein: JEIN!!"

I do like Germany because it's my home country - nothing like feeling at home.

But there is a lot of things that make me want to emigrate - for example, the way most things are over-regulated just because some people think there has to be a law for literally everything. Sometimes, German perfectionalism tends to get out of hand and people solve no problem at all rather than solving a few aspects of the problem.

What I also don't like is the "Sorry, I'm from Germany" attitude of many mainstream intellectuals. OK, so Germans did start two World Wars and committed all kinds of war crimes especially in WW2, but why is that a reason for me to feel ashamed of being German? I'll gladly accept my share of the responsibility of the German people for not letting people(s) forget the Holocaust and for getting closer together (international relationship-wise) to prevent history from repeating itself, but why on Earth should the history of my country, which I can't change, make me feel bad about being a citizen of it?

Aloges,
It's not like you were around in that time period nor could you have done anything about it. I don't think that there is any reason to be personally ashamed of your heritage. If you really want to dig into it, Stalin makes Hitler look like an amateur. People come to power and they just have some really interesting ideas and at their hands atrocities are committed. My point being, what you can do in the meantime is learn from the mistakes of those before you and love people all around the world. The early-mid 20th century was certainly an interesting time for Germany but we can be thankful now that it is the great country that it should be.
