We asked our readers on Facebook and Twitter what they would miss/do miss the most about Germany and with their help we've come up with our Local List – ten things you'd miss about Germany if you left tomorrow.
From lakes and licensing laws to buildings and beer gardens, we look at the things which make living in Germany really great – many of which we take for granted, until we move away of course.
What would you miss the most if you left Germany?
