The homeowner (or renter) is responsible or sweeping the sidewalk and street in front of the house. You also need to pull out the wed in the sidewalk.

Events - social as well as business - start punctually in Germany.

If you are planning a party, tell your German friends the time you actually want and expect them to arive - don't plan with the 15 minute American buffer zone - it will not work!

If you are invited or have a meeting, and you find yourself running late, do call to announce your late arrival.
