Hint: it involves Angela Merkel.

1. Make sure you have a ton of bratwurst.

The Gruene Woche (“Green Week”) agricultural fair is taking place in Berlin — the bratwurst above, and all the food below, were snapped there.

According to Getty, “the average German consumes 1094 animals in his or her lifetime, including four cows, four sheep, 12 geese, 37 ducks, 46 turkeys, 46 pigs and 945 chickens.”

Allow them to take it by a field of Dutch tulips. Remember “tulip mania?” When tulips in Holland were worth SO MUCH MONEY? And then the bubble burst? That is arguably the best part of history ever.
