Contemporary Lifestyles

The lifestyles of German-speaking people in Europe is dominated or strongly influenced by what is called 'western' culture. However, don't judge a book by its cover. The Vielfalt (diversity) of lifestyles and cultures are found across and within German-speaking countries in Europe, as they are in Australia.

Never-the-less, common aspects of daily life can be identified and relate to the language and culture of the local community; some the same as our life in Australia, some obviously different, while others may seem the same but are quite different.
