Windows in Europe are miles ahead of the ones here in the States. It's an open-and-shut case.

You probably don't think too much about it -- or think about it at all -- but windows on that side of the pond are more advanced than the simple sliding up and down ones we have over here.

YouTuber Matthias Wandel was loving how the windows in Germany operate, so much so that he made this video touting all of their cool features, including the multiple ways that exist to open them.

Wait until this guy goes outside and sees all of the other differences, from currency and architecture to license plates and cuisine. He may be on another continent, but he might as well be on another planet.

He's truly opening a window to the world and all of the amazing things to discover beyond his borders. Who knew a window could have that kind of impact?
