Switch on Deutschland – complexity and exactness are reflected in its name as well as in its sound like in the mirror. Complexity is a peculiarity of German Culture, too.
This country has given a number of prominent people to the world: Goethe and Hitler, Dietrich and Bismarck, Einstein and Honecker. Militancy and arrogance are mingled with fine intellect and graceful beauty. High technologies get on with adherence to old-time traditions, resolute standing to one’s colors – with love of fun holidays, overall devotion to beer – with no less devotion to wine.
