Germany has a lot of architecture. Probably the most well known is the Porta Nigra, in Trier, one of the largest architectural relics from the Roman period. The Porta Nigra is the best-preserved ancient city gate in Germany. The Roman Empire once extended over much of today's German Federal Republic, and there are still remains from the Romans from around 100-150 A.D. There are also many military forts and camps in Germany built by the Romans.

The Porta Nigra

The culture in Germany is some what similar to American culture. Their main religion is Christianity. The food that is the most consumed is Pork. Schweinshaxe (braised pork hock) and Saumagen (pork stomach) are a couple of traditional pork dishes. Cabbage, beets, and turnips are commonly incorporated into meals, as they are native to the region, and potatoes and sauerkraut are also stars of German cuisine.

Schweinshaxe

German's listen to Electronic Rock, Hip hop, Heavy metal, Opera, and a few other types of music too. A traditional folk dance is called Schuhplattler. It’s popular in the Alpine regions of Bavaria and Tyrol (southern Germany, Austria, and the German speaking regions of northern Italy). In this dance, the performers stomp, clap, and hit the soles of their shoes, thighs and knees with their hands. There are more than 150 basic Schuhplattlers, as well as marches and acrobatic feats that are often interspersed with the basic dance in performance. While the Schuhplattler is still largely performed by adults, it has become popular with kids, who love its colorful costumes and it’s bouncing, leaping, kicking and choreographed dances. Below is a video about Schuhplattler.

The weather in Germany has extreme temperature, lows and highs, and they are rare. Winter temperatures differ from east to west, with around freezing temperatures in the west, and well below freezing in the east of Germany. Summer temperatures are typically between 20°C and 30°C, with more rainfall during the summer months.

An interesting fact is that Deutschland means Germany in German!!!
