Oh and forgot to say.......... most places are closed on Sundays! Sunday is a family/religious day here and not a 'shopping day' as it is in many other countries. Therefore, if you are going sightseeing (say to Augsburg etc) be aware that you will probably not be able to buy anything although you will find a few cafes open for food. I think there are a few museums open in Munich on Sundays (they were free at one point to encourage visitors due to low attendance) but it's best to look on their websites for details.

<i>Midland, Michigan, now I understand... Isn't it a big rival with Paris, Milan & NYC for fashion centers?</i>

The funny thing is that, despite the stereotypes, small-town people are the most prone to overdressing. It has to do with a lack of information about day-to-day life in these places. Jeans are fine pretty much anywhere, including Germany.

travelgourmet, so you work in a frieght yard?

Just kidding....

lyb, that is very funny.

Spaarne, if you don't wear jeans that is your right and I respect that. But there is no need to look down at others who do wear jeans.

No, but my wife does work in a freight-related industry. She has to wear suits, though.

Since everybody in the entire Universe wears jeans, why would anyone wish to look like everyone else? I'm going to Bavaria in October, and wouldn't dress like the current "fashion" for anything! A "tweed skirt" and a cashmere sweater are timeless and elegant! I have suede, water-resistant "brogues", and they are classic and COMFORTABLE! "Support hose"? DEFINITELY, when flying across the Atlantic for 8+ hours! Jeans are a tired and predictable cliche. What makes them especially distasteful is that far too many wear them, who SHOULD NOT, for Heaven's sake! "To each, his own", and being "old school" I prefer to look as if "I care" rather than to stagger, reluctantly, toward the current trend of looking like a Third World derelict! As animals, we all still make initial assessments based upon how others present themselves in public, whether we're aware of it, or not. I'm a "creature of my upbringing" and prefer to look my best...regardless!
