Pavilion Setting: The Germany Pavilion is styled to look like a 16th century German town, only with architecture from several distinct periods. You’ll immediately see the statue of Saint George slaying a dragon as well as a clock tower with a glockenspiel that chimes on the hour. The rest of the Pavilion is made up of small shops and the Biergarten restaurant, all of which are immaculately detailed.
Attraction Info: There isn’t much to do in Germany other than shop, eat, and drink beer. It could be worse. Otherwise, check out the working model train and village scene on the left hand side as you walk towards the United States Pavilion.
Dining Options: Biergarten is a popular World Showcase buffet that offers a variety of authentic German food as well as a delightful music show featuring traditional German folk music. Sommerfest, Germany’s counter service, serves tasty bratwurst and the best pretzels in Disney World. Also check the German kiosk for a variety of beers and non-alcoholic drniks.
Drink Around the World: Radeberger and Altenmunster have taken over the beer choices at the Germany Pavilion, replacing the (superior) Spaten Optimator and Franziskaner. I recommend the Altenmunster Oktoberfest, which is rarer to find in stores than the Radeberger Pilsner.
Character Sightings: Snow White greets guests at the Wishing Well on the left side as you arrive at Germany from China and the Africa Outpost.
Shopping Opportunities: Other than eating and drinking, shopping is the main attraction at the German Pavilion. Expect a great variety of expensive hand-made goods as well as cheaper merchandise for the masses. There are hand-painted eggs, Hummel figurines, beer steins, Steiff bears, cuckoo clocks, Swarovski jewelry, and plenty more for your browsing pleasure. This is one of the more popular places to shop with a lot of fun and unique items, so I would recommend taking some time to check it out.
