    I dont know about Nürnberg but I can say the Frankfurt Rhein/Main area has changed alot.
    I lived there for about 35 years. After moving back to the States some 15 years ago I got to go on a trip to Frakfurt 2 years ago.
    Wow so much has changed .....except the driving that was still as crazy as always:laugh:

    In 15 years many things changed around the cities. Doesn't matter if you visit frankfurt,munich or berlin.
    Over 85 Million people on that small country :D

    I KNEW there had to be German vapers out there! Looked all over the forums :) How is the public attitude toward Vaping in Germany? I would think you'd see people vaping in many bars?

    Greetings from Stuttgart!
    Of course there are German vapers out there. I'm not one of them (American) but I know some. The public attitude is probably about the same as the states. No torches and pitchforks, but the occasional funny looks. :)
    I don't go to bars (not very social outside of the internet), but I do see people outside on occasion.

    In germany if you are a vaper, its almost the same like you are smoker.
    As a vaper you have to act like a smoker, protect the non smoker/vapers. There are powers in the politics and lobbyism against and we have to be carefull. There was a try to make liquids get the status of a medicament.
    Maybe in future we are all outlaws because of vaping, don't know :D
    Anyways, atm everything is ok.


    The Weinachtsmarkt in Dortmund is legendary
    We got the biggest... :D

    Hmm. It's similiar here in California. The non-smokers are very strong in government in this state. I Do vape when I go shopping; no one has said anything to me (yet). I had a family member who had an operation and the nurses allowed her to vape in the hospital room. I have been stockpiling nicotine just in case the laws change.:)

    Vaping while shopping :D
    i love the californian way of life, but in germany i think its not possible doing that.
    We got too much rules, only if you like driving fast we are the kings :D

    The most doing the same like they were smokers. They vape at home, in car and outside. No Public rooms, no malls or other places where smoking is not allowed.

    Here in Berlin, things are a little different with vaping, just because it's different for smokers too. Smoking is allowed in nearly every bar, people are always smoking in public on places like train and U-Bahn platforms etc. Never in restaurants though, which is good. So you see vapers in a few extra places then a lot of cities.

    I got a taxi last night and the driver had a little eGo around his neck that he took occasional puffs from....

    Because people smoke in bars, normally no one notices I'm vaping but when they do, most ask about it. As I'm normally sat at the bar, I've converted a few barmen too!

    Sigh.. sigh sigh... I still dream I am driving on the Autobahn sometimes. I had to drive everywhere for my work (Spiel Automaten Reparatur). It's a big difference from driving in Germany to here in the States, where it seems everyone is driving in slow-motion :facepalm: Would be nice to vape at 280kmh/std. :)

    Thanks for that! Wooooh! God, I miss it. Statistically it's safer to drive there than here! Funny that sensation when you slow down to 160kmh and it feels slooooow.. hehe That's looks very familiar. I think the A6 headed east from Nuernburg towards Ansbach? Hard to say with the resolution, but I remember every bump on that stretch, and this video is close. Oh, and Vaping on the Autobahn would be fun ;)
