Tipping isn’t compulsory at restaurants, since bills always include a service charge (Bedienung). However, unless the service was really bad, it’s customary to tip some extra 5 to 10%. European waiters don’t depend on tips to make a living, but feel free to tip more if they were friendly and helpful with the language.

You are not expected to leave the tip on the table. In order to tip, you add the extra money to the amount you are expected to pay and tell the waiter how much you are paying in total. For example, if your bill is € 37 and you are tipping € 3 you would tell the waiter ’40, bitte’. If you have the exact amount -the € 40 in this case- you just say 'Stimmt so' (that's fine). If you need to claim for your change, say Wechselgeld (money back).  When eating as a group, people often pay and tip separately (getrennt).

At hotels, bellhops are given about € 1 per bag and it's also nice to leave a few euros for the room cleaners. Tip bartenders about 5% and taxi drivers around 10%, though a small gratuity rounding up to the nearest Euro is also frequent.
