One thing we liked when visiting Germany is getting off the main roads and enjoying the scenery. We tend to have loads of fences and hedges that spoil the view over here.
A lot of it is probably due to small farms and land owners using hedges and fences as boundaries. Farms and land have then been consolidated in to larger properties but the field boundaries have been retained.Once watched a dude on youtube making a hiking trip through wales in a straight line (as much as possible) and I wondered why there are so many fences
Maybe Germany built one big wall in the middle so that we didnt have to build fences between acres
