IT'S ALL ABOUT UNDERSTANDING THE DIFFERENCES

Germany is a very open-minded and tolerant country. People are generally very relaxed. They do accept all kinds of different behavior without taking offense. Germans have traveled the world, and in most companies hiring foreigners, you will find a working culture that embraces differences.
