Bees are not a very common sight in the city, especially since 20% of the one million colonies didn't survive the winter, which as been blamed on the Varroa mite. Some beekeepers have even gone as far as stealing other keeper's hives.

It looks as though bees are becoming even more valuable in Germany, because some airports have gone as far as using bees to detect local air quality.

Surprisingly there is a very large variety of honey available in Germany in varieties as varied as avocado and lavender, which makes a unique gift to bring someone.
