Cultural and language differences

Doing business in Germany can be very lucrative for the entrepreneur. With over 80 million inhabitants, Germany has a very large sales market. Entrepreneurs often spend a lot of time understanding cultures such as China, Russia, etc. As a result, the culture that is closer to home is often forgotten. Even though the countries are not far from each other, there are still a number of differences that make it easier for you as an entrepreneur to do business.


First of all, a big difference between the Netherlands and Germany is the language. The Germans often think that German is a world language and therefore often do not speak English. It is important to take this into account so that there is no barrier between you and the customer. In the Netherlands, we learn the basics of the German language at schools, but if you want to do business in the German market, it is important that you master the language. The Germans will speak little or no English.


Germans are very controlling and like to have everything in their own hands. This is where the high quality standards come from. They don’t want to make mistakes. The quality of the Germans can also be seen in their cars that the Germans are known for. Germans also almost always come to their meetings formally dressed. It is therefore important if you have a business appointment not to wear informal clothing..

Local number

With a geographic number you tie your brand to a specific city or region. For example, it is possible to take a telephone number in the area code area of, for example, Frankfurt, Dusseldorf or Berlin. This ensures that the local population has more confidence and thus clearly shows which market you want to reach. This option is intended for companies that want to indicate that they will be physically present in the country. But it is also very useful for shops that have several visiting addresses.

National number

Using a national number gives your company more possibilities on a national scale. Germany’s national number begins with the area code 32 It doesn’t matter what your primary location is, because the national numbers ensure that you have a national identity. Your customers will easily find out where you are located by looking at your contact number. This ensures a better reputation and more reliability for your company. As an added benefit, multiple locations can be accessed through one number. This is ideal if you have multiple locations. .
