All members of my family have been to Germany except me and my little brother. My dad has been there like 9 times, visited all regions of the country.
My mom also had an operation in Dusseldorf back in 93' or 94', cant remember. And my older brother visited 2 years ago and stayed for a couple of months in Berlin.
They all told me the same thing: Great Country but Shitty Weather.

I suppose you would have problems if you dont speak deutsch as it's the case with any other country you go but i wanna ask you a question: Why do you wanna leave NYC?
It's only the Greatest City on earth. Are you bored or something cause if you get bored in NY i cant even imagine any other city in Europe.

Sogar unsere Bundesräte sind gegen den deutschen Staatsterrorismus nicht immun

Quote:
Leuenberger wurde gefilzt

Bundespräsident Moritz Leuenberger ist auf dem Flughafen Frankfurt am Main in einer Kontrolle hängen geblieben. Er wurde von deutschem Sicherheitspersonal durchsucht.


Leuenbergers Delegation wurde durch deutsches Sicherheitspersonal auf «sehr unfreundliche Art und Weise» angehalten und durchsucht, wie der Sprecher des Departements für Umwelt, Verkehr, Energie und Kommunikation, André Simonazzi, einen Bericht des «Blicks» von heute bestätigte.

Leuenberger befand sich am Samstag früh auf der Rückreise seines offiziellen Afrika-Besuchs und legte auf dem Deutschen Flughafen Frankfurt Main einen Zwischenstopp ein. Im Flughafengebäude wurde die angemeldete Delegation durch Sicherheitspersonal angehalten. Der Bundespräsident musste seine Jacke ausziehen und wurde abgetastet.

In der Aktenmappe fanden die Sicherheitsleute schliesslich ein Glas Honig, das Leuenberger in Afrika zum Abschied geschenkt bekommen hatte. Nach den neuen EU-Regeln dürfen solche Güter nicht in der Kabine transportiert werden. Ob diese Regelung auch für einen Bundespräsidenten gelte, sei eine andere Frage, so Simonazzi.

Der «nicht sehr angenehme» Vorfall sei nun aber abgeschlossen und werde keine Konsequenzen haben, sagte der Uvek-Sprecher. (mu/ap)
Wahrscheinlich ein Racheakt gegen die Sturheit der Eidgenossen, was das Anflugverfahren auf dem Zürcher Flughafen anbelangt

I am an Austrian studying in Vienna and I can from tell you from my own experience, that the Americans I met all had a great time here.

I dont know about the chances of getting a decent academic job here in the fields of history where one does not need to speak German. I guess it will be a bit difficult. And the working permission, visa etc issue is quite the same in Austria as in Germany or probably any other EU country.

Vienna has been called by a study of a respectable consulting company to be among the top 3 major cities (ok that means above 1 mio inhabitants ) when it comes to quality of life btw.

Communicating in English is no problem at all when being in an academic environment, but dont expect every Austrian to speak English.

Principally I think you should at least have visited the place you are planning to move to as tourist before. Even the more if you have already friends here who could show you around and tell you how it is like.

EDIT:
I see this thread is so old, it could be already from stone age...
Well, anyway...

Wow, you Germans are so substandard. Unbelievable.

I could not imagine to live in such a place like Cologne, without having an efficient ice-block supply from nearby mountains to cool my beer and the deer hunted in the nearby woods...

As I dont get the irony, I just will stupidly answer completley serious:

Yes I like meals with deer. Not that I eat them always, but deer is a rather common food in Austria. Well, at least for sunday meals or if deer weeks are at your local Wirtshaus etc. That goes so far that there exist recipies like the "falscher Hirsch", if you want to cook something like deer but dont want to afford the more expensive meat.

But isn't that the same in Germany too?

This should explain things: https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...&postcount=106

I know about falscher Hase. Very delicious.

To those who don't speak German, this is "falscher Hase":

Oh, ehm, nope. I prefer deer to be in bits and pieces, and most importantly than exclusively for nutrition purposes....

RednBlack, you can also find out if there are academic exchange programs available for you. You would stay in Germany for half a year or a year without breaking all connections to the USA and can try to get a job for the time afterwards. If it doesn't work out as expected, you can still safely return to your environment in the USA and practically nothing changed for you except of that you have learned firsthand another culture (which could be even an advantage for an even better job in NYC).

Regarding why moving out from NYC: I can imagine that one can get sick of the density (overcrowded metros, traffic jams etc.).

Maybe you could try first visiting the country, plane tickets from NYC to Europe ain't expensive. Then if you like, you could spend the first months just learning the language in some school (if you have some money) and then move on with your job.

But I don't think your standard of live is going to change as much as you think moving away from New York.

Oh, and if you start learning German in the USA it will take some time, cuz I've been learning the language for 1 year and I can't speak much in it heheh.
