Tip waiters directly in Germany

Instead of leaving the tip on the table, add it to the total amount when you pay. For example, if the bill is €2.70, tell the waitress "€3 please" when she comes to collect the money. When you get the check for something small, like a cup of coffee, round up to the next even euro. For larger amounts, tip 10%. See our Germany Travel Guide.
