It’s in his kiss – Erm, no, it isn’t!

Actually, on this occasion, it isn’t – It’s in his handshake 😉
Germans like to shake hands when they meet. If they meet friends or relatives they may hug or kiss, but if it’s a business meeting or they meet an acquaintance then they shake hand. It is not uncommon to see a German arrive at a business meeting and shake hands with everybody present. Likewise when they leave.

The following German video is from a workshop which showed how to deal with those different types of handshakes.


Edit 2020: Thanks to the Corona pandemic there is now a decline of handshakes . The following video gives some information about “The History (And Uncertain Future) Of The Handshake”
