Question for any Germans on this board

On a scale of 1 to 10, how hostile/grumpy are German locals towards tourists/Asian immigrants?

I'm not German, but 1/10

My grandfather was Austrian, and he didn't like aboriginals because he felt that they were less likely than the general population to mow their lawns and keep an attractive garden.

They seem don't mind Asians and Latinos, but they really hate turks.

I am Germany and my wife is Chinese. She has not had any trouble, nor has anyone she knows.

That's pretty damn impressive. Also obligatory Deputy Andy "I'm a whole damn town!" Reference.

Depends on where you go. Germany has a lot of problems with racism, neo-nazies and Ostalgia but most of the badness is targeted at middle eastern people. Asians are only likely to encounter casual racism.

What's Ostalgia?

Also, from everything that I've been told, there doesn't seem to be much racism toward others unless you're Turkish or black.

You shouldn't have any problems in the west of Germany.

The east (territory of the former DDR) is a mixed bag. There is more racism in the east in general and the reputation of Asians is suffering because of the unpopular ethnic minority the east-germans call " Fidschis" (they are actually not from the Fiji islands, but from Vietnam).

Nostalgia for the DDR/GDR (Deutsche Demokratische Republik/German Democratic Republic).
It's similar to those people in Russia who want the UDSSR back and glorify Stalin (but usually more tame).

Nostalgia for East Germany.

Seriously. There are actual people who miss it.

Anyway, most of Germany's racism is toward Muslims and Africans. Asians have it pretty easy, all things considered. (East Asians, not South Asians)
