I was in a few touristy spots but they were populated mostly by japanese tourists, which was weird to hear them speaking german since i speak a little. in alot of the small towns i didnt have much trouble at all finding people who spoke it, and most replied back to me in english when i spoke german to them (which says alot about how good my accent is i guess haha). ive never been north of bavaria other than a day or two and i was travelling with friends at that time so didnt really talk to any locals.
Was it you telling me that Canadians speaking German have the worst accent and it's like nails on a chalk board to them?
