Don't stare at naked people: "People are pretty relaxed about nudity, and bothmen and women will for example change on public beaches without any attempt atcovering themselves up. You are however expected to look away."
Don't unwrap flowers before you give them as a gift: "Germans do this."
Don't ask people about church: "Most attend none, and asking this is seen asintrusive, rude and downright weird."
Don't expect special treatment: "People are very informal here and being on afirst-name-basis with anyone short of the King is the norm. Even theprime-minister of Norway is most often referred to by first name."
