Deutsche Fenster!! German windows...so amazing. As an American living in Germany, I am fascinated by the windows here in Germany, especially how they open. "Fenster kippen" was not something I had heard of in the USA!
So my question for you is: Windows!! What can you do with the windows where you live? Or what kind of interesting things have you seen as far as windows go around the world?

Well, alone in Europe, the UK has the same type of windows as the USA, i.e. cranks opening to the outside or push ups. Cleaning them is also a nuisance!

On newer windows you can also put the handle between left/right and up to open the window a small gap of about 5 mm. The window is locked in the position, so it can't pushed open or close by the wind. Its called "Spaltlüftung".
kalwi eu

You've probably missed one other cool feature of such windows, however, some windows don't have it (especially cheaper ones). When you turn the lever in a diagonal way, then a very small gap between the window and its frame appears, but you still can't open the window fully out. It's called a micro ventilation and it allows your house/flat "to breathe", I mean a moisture can get out, or a fresh air can get in. It's very useful e.g. when you use a fume hood or fire heater or fireplace with a chimney, because these windows will hermetically seal off the space otherwise when fully closed. The lever turned into the down-side position usually opens a smaller gap than the up-side position, but sometimes the up-side position doesn't work well or the window could accidentally open. And yes, as many people already mentioned, these windows are common among whole continental Europe, here in Czech Republic too.

Windows have been like this already 500 years ago. Why should one use an other technique for windows and doors ? It's both the same thing, they differ in size. I' always scared of US-windows, we have a fear they could fall down, while we are leaning out. The only advantage of US-windows: they are storm safer, the wind doesn't move any mobile part. But how do they clean the window from outside ? They never clean it ? Or some roped serviceman is coming down the facade ? The german housewife just stands in her living room.

Truthfully, there is no practical way for me to clean the outside of my windows. It's a problem, but not as much as it seems like it would be since it also doesn't seem to get very dirty on the outside. Of course, I"m a second-floor dweller, so no one can just touch them with sticky hands or such things

Why you need to „kippen“ your windows, when you have Central Air in rooms?
Crystal Mobley
Crystal Mobley Vor Monat
It's nice to be able to air out your home, to let fresh air in. Central Air recycles the air, so there's no new air coming in. But it probably is something that you would only want in places that have mild weather.
Carl Cushman Hybels
Fun to see and hear your enthusiasm. The 'Tippen' and 'Rollahden' innovatively nice and cool handle action. But the way the whole window swings inward seems a bad design: It'd be in the way and reduce interior room/ make moving around indoors awkward. Plus, inward opening, loose swinging windows would be dangerous with young kids running around (slamming into them) or oblivious texting teens bonking into them. American old and newer sashed up and down windows appear more practical and safe. Outward cranking windows (USA and Euro) are OK, but constrict ventilation.

Yeah i think the whole tilting thing is pretty standard in most german windows. But "Rollläden" the Shutters are not. Many apartments got them but is a matter of the Time they are build in and if the owner invests that money because they are expensive even if they are manualy.

There's still a lot more to a german window than what you described. For example: In america most windows are just a single plane of glass. In germany you usually have two and sometimes three planes of glass with either air or sometimes even a special gas in between. This helps to reduce the heat exchange between the interior and the exterior of the room when the window is closed, thereby contributing to the insulation of the house and in the last consequence helps to save a whole lot of money on heating in the winter and cooling in the summer. Furthermore the insulation strip in between the windowframe and the window not only increases the insulation factor but usually also contains a membrane that helps to regulate moisture exchange between the inside and the outside. You can also get specialiced windows with a self-tanning effect when exposed to strong sunlight or with specialized sound insulation, but that's not all too common.
+Carl Cushman Hybels Seems my information was outdated. Thanks for correcting me^^
Carl Cushman Hybels
Most American windows from the 1970's on are double pane. (Insulated by air space between) Some new ones (2000's) are triple pane. There are very few single pane windows left in USA, except probably in areas where the temps aren't cold or hot. As in: Most of USA are glad to have double pane windows.

Rolladen protect the apartment or the house not only from bright light but also from burglars. However, these shutters are quite expensive. That is why 90% of them are installed especially on the ground floor (Erdgeschoss). The Japanese and Koreans, like the Americans, use sliding windows. In this case they don't move the windows from the bottom to the top but from the right to the left or via versa. Personally, I consider that this represents the best of all solutions.

German windows are amazing. They actually seal. Isn't that fantastic? For Europeans it is hard to believe that American windows are horrible. But they are. They do not seal and cause you heating and AC costs like hell. It is like everything built in America - not made for durability and neither for efficiency.

Rolladen/Rolläden are usually only standard for ground floor / souterrain apartments, mainly to prevent unwanted entries like burglaries and to prevent passersby looking in your bedroom window. Newer buildings often have them on all floors though.

Well, most if not all of the windows in germany are designed in that fashion, some even with an option to have an implemented lock in your handle so nobody can actually open a window without permission or possessing a key, e.g. at hotels and so on. And while this might be the most common design of windows in Europe, it isn#t the only one. British and Irish windows are often kept in that - let's call it North American - way, because it exists in Canada as well. But what I really really do love about those windows is: they're usually double-glassed. How have I been freezing my butt off at hotels and guesthouses abroad with those single-glassed, permeable uninsulated windows and you, in question, didn't even have a heating at hand...

I live in the Czech Republic (the neighboring country of Germany) These windows are quite common here. I think that such a window system is used everywhere in the European Union, it is the so-called "euro-window". "Rollladen" is called "Rolety" in Czech. I also think that for you as an American can be interesting some european security doors with the multipoint locks, that are used in many apartments.
