German Living Tip of the Day Part 5
If you ever heard "did you lock the door?" as a question growing up, be prepared not to hear that at all when you go to Germany. You don't have to lock your doors over here. Why? Because they lock automatically behind you. So, a better question to ask is "do you have the keys?" before you finish closing the door behind you. That's true for an inner and an outer door! And, for most of them, there is not a way to leave them unlocked behind you! So, an even better idea, hide a spare set outside so you never get locked out!
