Is life better in France or Germany

10 differences between France and Germany

Mealtimes: an important part of French culture!

“You can argue about taste”, but not about meal times. The French attach great importance to their daily meal calendar, which includes breakfast, a hot lunch, a gourmand and a hot dinner. You eat together, whether with colleagues or in a family circle. A time of enjoyment and exchange. The times when you get together for lunch are: 12 noon to 2 p.m.

Many working French people go to the "Resto" around the corner to eat their warm, sometimes 4-course menu. This means that if you come “too late” at 3 p.m. you then wish to have “lunch”, because then the Maître of Cuisine is already preparing for the dinner table, which he will start from 7.30 p.m. to 9.30 p.m. Clock opens.

Of course, you will also find kitchens that are open all the time in big cities, but our tip: take a detour because restaurants with kitchens that are open all the way are rarely recommended! It is better to enjoy a small self-made snack with pies and cheese, baguette and, if you don't have to drive, with a good sip of wine. The ingredients for this feast on the banks of the Seine or with a view of the sea, or as a break during the bike tour, can be found in all supermarkets, large or small and always fresh.
