Tipping in Germany

Jump to last reply

Going to Germany in a couple of weeks and would like to know what is proper when it comes to tipping for services. Do you tip your housekeeper at hotels like we do in USA?
What is the usual % amount for tipping at restaurants?
Any other infomation people have on the proper tipping etiquette would be helpful.
Thank you.
