It’s always a good idea to pack for any eventuality when taking a trip, and it’s no different for those of you traveling to Germany. It’s always better to buy the traveling essentials from your home city than spend bucks on expensive airport stores and tourist destinations.


We’ve pulled together a list of things that we think should be in your bag before you leave home, so take some time now to ensure that all the bases are covered!

A universal adapter

You can pick one up quite cheaply these days at most hardware stores. It may seem like overkill, but if you forget this vital item, your electronics might have no power source as German outlets are type C or F! It’s worth noting that an adapter is also handy if you’re traveling between countries.

A travel hairdryer

Have you ever tried to use a regular one when you’re on the road? Simply doesn’t cut it! So don’t forget your hairdryer, as long as it’s portable and works for you. You can get a compact travel dryer from any superstore.

Soundproofing in hotels and hostels leaves a lot to be desired, and there’s still that pesky problem of noisy neighbors. Those earplugs will not only help your sleep when staying in small spaces but also allow for a good night’s rest in more remote locations where privacy is hard to come by.

Rain gear

Germany isn’t always sunny! If you’re planning to visit the lakes in the northern part of the country during winter or even in fall or spring, you may want to pack some rain gear. Just in case you do happen to go when it’s wet out, an umbrella or a full-body raincoat never hurts either!

Lightweight luggage

The luggage rules are extremely strict in Germany. If you’re planning on bringing a roller bag, be sure that it is under 20 kg (44 lbs.), including your belongings. Anything heavier, and you might have to pay for overweight luggage. If your bag is just a few kilograms over the limit, they might simply refuse to check it in.

Good walking shoes

You never know what you might decide to do when suddenly presented with free time – whether sightseeing, wandering around town or something else! Having comfortable shoes on hand can make all the difference between enjoying your day and hating it! Since Germany is very pedestrian-friendly, you’ll want to walk the cities on foot!
