Germans bagging the best spots on the beach and around the pool is a particular aggravation for Britons on holiday.
But now it can be revealed that the Germans do not like the British while on a break, either.
In fact, the Germans appear not to be particularly keen even on their fellow countrymen while on trips away, according to a survey of Germans by online travel agency ab-in-den-urlaub.de.

More surprising was that Germans, often perceived as hale and hearty on holiday, get stressed when away, with the survey revealing that 77% cannot relax while on a break, with even their spouses and friends appearing to upset them.
Just 4% reckoned their holiday companions were "not a problem", with other complaints being about food in hotels and noisy children
