6. The biggest supplier of frozen pizza to Italy is a German company.

7. Twenty years after reunification, East German citizens are still paid less than their West German counterparts for the same work. The payment difference is regulated by the government which, however, insists that men and women be paid the same wage for the same work.

9. In Bavaria beer is considered food.

10. Telemarketing is illegal in Germany.
