In the video below, Shabnam an Indian expat in Germany, walks you through taboos that she has found in Germany and the reasons behind them, as well as things that aren’t taboo in Germany that she was used to being taboo in her home country. I think you’ll be able to relate to some of them.

Some of these are taboo in my home country of Australia too and some are not. People would definitely be surprised here if you talked about your income, for example.

I hope you found this video interesting and now don’t have to have a shock if you need to go to the gynecologist in Germany!
