Today, we are taking a tour through the Third Rei...ehh, Germany!!!
This country is not only interesting for it's history, but also for it's culture, the people, and traditions that have lived on for centuries!
Many of our admins/players are from Germany, most known are Heady and CatsyLady!
Shout out to them, and maybe they could add on this, if they find an interesting fact also, the next country on the list after this will be GREECE, so stay tuned! Let's begin!

That about does it for this country, as i said, the next country after this will be Greece, and i will do it later today!
Also, i mean't to offend no German or Germany as a country itself, with these facts.
No Germans were harmed in the making of this list...maybe some jews :P

And ofc, some images at the end:

It's actually a really funny law, it's active in 17 countries, i think, it says that if you DENY that the holocaust happened you go to prison, something like that..

Nice post. But there is too much Oktoberfest & Hitler in it. And I miss the cars, especially BMW & Porsche.

 

Here are some impressions (Google pictures) from my city:
