|Some people have house shoes for guests (www.delaishop.info)|
When you go to a house in Germany the odds are you will be asked to take off your shoes. Additionally, you may be given house shoes (slippers) to wear while you are visiting.
Removing your shoes when visiting someone at home is not unheard of in the USA but often it depends on what culture the person most closely associates with. Even when asked to take off her shoes in the USA, she has definitely never been offered house shoes. It makes sense though. Take off your shoes and your feet may be cold...why not wear house shoes?

We do not have house shoes to give guests but we do have our own for when we are home and our feet get cold. His are serious house shoes, hers are more for fun :)

One thing is for sure, make sure your socks match (and are clean) before visiting anyone in Germany at home!
