It's often said that the Germans don't really 'do' small talk. But, as Rachel Stewart finds out in this week's episode of Meet the Germans, there are still a few tricks you can use to break the ice here in Germany.

Rachel Stewart is on a mission to investigate the quirks and idiosyncrasies of daily life in Germany. Every two weeks she explores a new topic - from beer to nudity to complicated grammar - and heads out to get some tips from the Germans themselves.

Rachel moved from the UK to Germany in 2016. As a relative newcomer she casts a fresh eye over German clichés and shares her experiences of settling into German life. You'll find more from Meet the Germans on YouTube or at dw.com/MeettheGermans.

Its not only whether they do small talk or not, they are too serious, sensitive & ... to have friendly small talk and make friends. # Dont waste time, better try elsewhere.

I‘m German and I think this video must be satire🤔 maybe it depends on the generation, but in my opinion almost everything isn’t really true. It is muuuuch exaggerated😄

Of course you can have some Smalltalk with us. But then be just honest. Don't ask us "how is it going?" when you're actually don't wanna here it. That's it.

Buckle up, brace yourselves because we have are going on the German Autobahn...where apparently there are no speed limits as these 2 grandpa drivers watch every German car and motorcycle speed past us at insane speeds...

This marks the start of our German Fairy Tale Road trip as we make our way from Berlin towards the very cute half timbered house town of Quedlinburg.
