What type of plugs and sockets are used in Germany?
When you are going on a trip to Germany, be sure to pack the appropriate travel plug adapter that fits the local sockets. But what do those electrical outlets look like? In Germany, types C and F are the official standards. The type F plug and socket system was designed in Germany in 1926 and has now virtually become the universal Continental European standard. Only five Continental European countries use the slightly different, but fully compatible French type E standard (France, Belgium, Poland, the Czech Republic & Slovakia).
