Working in Germany

Recommended Posts

I'm a 23 year old groundsman/climber with 3 years experience. I am very interested in trying to find out any information on working in Germany.


Does anyone, by any chance have any previous experience in working in Germany who could offer some advice?


I also don't speak German but am hoping to enrol on to a months course in Germany To give me some basics in which I can improve on.

Hi Dom ,

I've been working in Bavaria since August and all in all its a pleasant place to be. it is without doubt the nicest part of Germany I have worked.

Let me just debunk a popular misconception about Germany only using Mewps right off .... If you are a climber , you will be climbing make no mistake. As the masters of proficiency and logic it stands to reason they won't pay a trained climber to stand in a bucket if they don't need to .

Language is a massive tick to have I cannot overstate how impressive this would be if you can speak German.

I could go on and on but to summarise, it's a very nice place to live , beautiful weather, people etc but for me Germany is quite pedantic and VERY controlled ( I had my passport checked 3 times within a couple of hours last week on a simple bus journey) although I understand why they need such control. Great experience but no real inspiration for me personally. Good luck :thumbup1:
