I've spent a few weeks in Germany and loved it.
I knew enough German to look like I was making an effort and that was appreciated.
Yes to the bakery suggestions, I'd find a local bakery in every little town I stayed in and would go there every morning to get some awesome grub.
Every evening we'd end up in some cozy biergarten to drink awesome beer and eat pretzels to soak up the alcohol.
I found the people to be very friendly and I always recognize when I'm a guest in someone's country and behave as a guest should.
