Something to Drink
The national drink is beer and a local speciality worth a try is Berliner Weisse mit Schuss which is beer with a dash of something, such as raspberry syrup. German wine, which is famous world-wide, is also worth trying.

The unit of currency in Germany is the Deutschmark (DM), and it is divided into 100 pfennigs (Pf). Notes come in denominations of DM 1.000, 500, 200, 100, 50, 20, 10 and 5. Coins are in denominations of DM 5,2 and 1, and 50, 10, 5, 2 and 1 phennigs.
