As we continue our journey through the World Showcase, leaving Italy and their wonderful pizza we find ourselves in Germany. Many people that travel to Epcot think that Germany is nothing but beer and bratwurst, but there is so much more. Let’s see what else we can find that is a little known or surprising fact of Germany.
- The Germany Pavilion is designed to look like a German town, but with architecture from different eras and regions. The Platz (square) is decorated with a statue of St. George and the Dragon and a clock tower. The Biergarten, at the rear of the courtyard, sells traditional German food. The pavilion also has numerous small shops selling German goods, including dolls and cuckoo clocks.
- In the courtyard, you can look up towards the back and see a clock tower. At the top of the hour, it will ring and German boy and gilr will come out and twirl around. (don’t worry they are made of wood). Sometimes the clock is off a few minutes, so you have to wait for it.
