In case you want to bring any electrical appliances with you, here is the system Germany uses: 220 volts and 50 Hz. It is a round pin attachment plug (see picture)
An adapter will allow you to plug an appliance designed for one type of outlet into another type of outlet. Despite the fact that more than a dozen different types of plugs are in use, a typical travel adapter kit usually contains about five adapters which are capable of dealing with most of the outlets shown here. Adapters often manage this versatility by bypassing the ground/earth wire.
Beware: an adapter by itself will not change the electrical voltage. You must be sure that your appliance can handle different voltages (either automatically or through a voltage switches). If it can't, you will need a voltage converter.
Luggage and bags:
Bring your camera of course!!! And plenty of film! It is great to wander around this little town, and take photos here.
When you travel here in March, like me, don't forget to bring warm clothes.... brrrr, because I found it quite cold that day, it even snowed while I was here!
For 'grounded' plugs, the "Schuko" plug and receptacle with side grounding contacts is used (see picture)
The receptacle will also accept the not-grounded plug shown in the previous tip.
