There must be order – or so goes the German saying. Rachel Stewart takes a look at the German love affair with rules, organization and order.

Rachel 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.

I just realized that my entire bedroom is furnished with IKEA furniture. Bed, wardrobe, shelves, commode, desk, lamps, even the bed linen is from IKEA ...🤦🏼‍♀️💁🏼‍♀️😂

They are still in Lala land. Germany is not in order anymore.

When I was in germany a few months ago, I realised "germans" and "orderly" cannot be used in the same sentence anymore.

Hä Mülltrennung hat nichtsot Ordnung zu tun. Das ist halt einfach nur mega gut für die Umwelt, weil man z.B. Plastik einfacher recyclen kann. Können sich andere Länder mal ein Beispiel nehmen.

I am 100% German. My home looks like a mess. :-D However I like order but never really do it. :-D

All this and still, it's only my two "German" roommates who fail to clean the kitchen/ bathroom even when it's their turn, and even when they do, they do the bare minimum and it's still messy after their "cleaning".

I, from India, and my other roommate from France have to over-compensate for them by going out of our way to keep everything neat as both of us can't stand the mess.

The last float in any carnival parade is sure to be the rubbish truck. This is very much true as the Fashing carnival always goes past my apartment and it's a mess. Cheap chocolates everywhere but in the end there is the truck cleaning up. If you missed the carnival you wouldn't even know it happened because in the evening the streets are clean again.

Filling a job application is so interesting. There's a section which reads, do you always have things in order. For example, like your kitchen, how things are suppose to be. Everything is based on calculations with the Germans.

Als meine Nachbarn letzte Nacht um 3 bei mir geringelt haben, bin ich so erschrocken, dass mir beinahe die Bohrmaschine aus der Hand gefallen wäre.

I've lived in Germany for 20 months now, and find most of this quite accurate. Germany is by far one of the best countries to live in, that is, of course, if you don't like noise, mess and lack of order. :)

The trash order needs to be the norm every where

The Germans are a practical bunch. As well as coming up with way more inventions than their European neighbors, they also have several everyday tricks to make life that little bit more efficient or enjoyable. We find out more on this week's Meet the Germans.

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.
