    Question Rivalry in Germany

    I was wondering and this is directed at the german members of this forum, Is there a difference between people of northern germany and southern germany for example Bavaria? What are the differences of people between the two regions and why the rivalry? Also does Bavaria want to be there own country? I was curious.

    Well, we had several threads about these questions. You can read them (including my views as a Bavarian):

    German Rivalry

    I've always categorized it as the "Oberlander", "Nederlander" dichotomy. The Oberland is the south in the foothills and mountains and the Nederland is in the north on the coastal plains and seashore. There are differences in language, thought patterns and culture.

    Now there is also a trichotomy that also exists, the "Oberlander", "Nederlander" and the "Auslander"...

    Yes, and this is precisely why I shall be going one step further and closing this thread here for redundancy, as we have more than enough topics explicitly about this, and more than enough topics where it was implicitly mentioned (such as the recent "Dividing Germany" thread) in passing. As much as it is one of my favourite subjects of debate, overkill is overkill.

    Thread closed.
