Buildings in a variety of archetypal Germanic architectural styles surround
St. Georgsplatz, named after it's major statue, Saint George (the patron saint of soldiers)
battling a legendary Dragon. Numerous small shops ring the plaza
offering a wide selection of German goods.
Between Germany and Italy there is a miniature village with model trains running through it that is usually worth a look (on my last visit, however, some of the village was in disrepair and the trains weren't all running, unfortunately).
At the Biergarten it's
Octoberfest all year round. There's a buffet of hearty German specialties,
and big steins of beer. It's a chummy kind of place, with seating at long
tables and audience involving entertainment. So, strap on that lederhosen and
drop on in. (Reservations recommended).
For a quick fix of brat, beer, and strudel, try the outdoor fast food counter,
Germany may be a nation known for its beer, but the Weinkeller
reminds us of their considerable achievements as wine makers, particularly
in white wines. Wine tastings are often offered.
Der Teddybär sells a variety of German toys, including stuffed stuff from Steiff.
Volkskunst sells Cuckoo clocks, steins, nutcrackers, and those other items no
tourist to the real Germany manages to leave the country without buying (I think
it's the law.)
Die Weihnachts Ecke is a Christmas shop (the name roughly translates to "Christmas Corner") and here you'll find dolls, gifts, ornaments and decorations for your tannenbaum.
Glas Und Porzellan offers, well, glass and porcelain items from Goebel, including their famous Hummel figurines.
Kunstarbeit In Kristall offers artistic crystal and other glassware including wine glasses, decanters, and jewelry.
Das Kaufhaus has still more glassware, plus hand-painted eggs. Some film and sundries also available.
Süssigkeiten is a delightful German cookie and candy shop.
From Germany you can turn left (as you face World Showcase Lagoon) to visit Italy or right to visit The Outpost.
