Berlin, Oct. 2 (ANI): Etiquette experts from around Germany will go to the Bavarian town of Grafenau in a bid to turn it into an epicenter of great manners.
The experts will teach a range of friendly actions to people, such as sales people will be told to smile at customers, husbands should surprise their wives with flowers, and children must offer their seats to the elderly on public transportation.
Hairdressers will help customers pick the perfect hairstyle, while a fashion show will teach locals what to wear, and what to avoid.
According to news.com.au, the ultimate aim of the course is to teach its children respect and adults 'proper behaviour'.
"For four days the residents of Grafenau will be introduced to etiquette," Hans-Michael Klein, the head of the society of manners, the German Knigge Association, said.
"Good demeanour and politeness are the solution to many everyday problems," he added.
"Grafenau was not chosen because we need to catch up on manners," Mr Niedermeyer said, adding: "But as the town lives from tourism there is always space for improvement."
According to the report, it is hoped the program could be expanded to other cities around the country, with several cities already inquiring about the etiquette coaching. (ANI)
