    What's Included

    After decades of close-to-the-ground travel through Europe, Rick Steves has learned which German words and phrases are important for independent travelers — and which ones are worthless outside of four-star hotels. This pocket-sized volume is packed with practical words and phrases designed to help you enjoy a better trip.

    You'll find key German words and phrases covering:

    • Travel in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland by train, car, city transit, and taxi
    • Shopping, money, entertainment, activities
    • Sightseeing, technology, sleeping
    • Germanic food, wine, and beer, with extensive descriptions
    • Travel talk, health, love, curse words
    • German tongue twisters and gestures

    Wait — there's more:

    • More pages than previous editions, but thinner paper for better "pocketability"
    • Detailed German–English and English–German traveler's dictionary
    • Helpful German–English and English–German menu decoder
    • Instructions for using tech devices and telephones
    • Phrases for making reservations over the phone
    • Maps to aid in conversations
    • Words and phrases designed to help you make friends with German speakers

    Is This the Right Book for Me?

    If your trip will focus primarily on German-speaking areas, this single-language phrase book is your best value.

    If you'll be traveling to Italian- or French-speaking areas as well, Rick Steves' French, Italian & German Phrase Book might be the better buy. It contains all the essentials of each single-language phrase book, but without a dictionary, and with fewer travel tips (and it's in two-color, not full color).
