So you want to explain that you’ve forgotten your ‘Kulturbeutel’ but you don’t know what it’s called in English? Well, we call it a ‘toiletry bag’ or ‘toilet bag’. If you can’t remember the name, at least you should be able to explain all the things that you can normally find in yours.
Deutsche Welle explains the German word ‘Kulturbeutel‘ very nicely in English. Yes, you mostly probably would expect opera glasses in a ‘Kulturbeutel’, wouldn’t you?
