Ordering Tap Water in Italy and Germany

Jump to last reply

What's the deal on tap water in Italy and Germany? So far, I've received one much appreciated reply in another thread when I asked how to request it in restaurants. Please share your knowledge.

Here's what someone else said:

We had the same experience that others had in France, tap water was graciously supplied, in fact I don't remember in 5 weeks having to ask once.

However, last summer in Germany, we were never, ever able to get tap water. (We spent 5 weeks traveling around.) It just was not offered or available. The servers told us that we had to buy it. Even at a cafeteria, I remember paying .50 Euro for a glass of tap water. It certainly adds money to your restaurant bill, when you are paying for water at every meal and in the summer, you want that drink of water. For me, nothing else will do.
