Alcohol laws in Germany
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Germany has three drinking ages.
- At 14 - minors are allowed to consume and possess undistilled (fermented) alcoholic beverages, such as beer and wine, as long as they are in the company of their parents.
- At 16 - undistilled drinks are allowed without a parent.
- At 18 - having become adults, people are allowed access to distilled liquor.
However, the state of Baden-Württemberg will be the first to forbid the off-premises sale of liquor during night hours (10 p.m. to 5 a.m.) from year 2010 on.
In your opinion: Does the new law in Baden-Württemberg help to stop young people from drinking too much?
