Please don't leave life, just leave berlin! You have nothing to lose trying something new at this point, and it is probably your situation pulling you down. Or go to the doctor if you can, the city might suck, but the healthcare can be very good! Hang in there dude, I'm sure we can help you get back on track

I hate the retarded expat community of 'uber cool' vaginas who are about as interesting as watching a toilet flush. Not to mention the miserable locals who frown upon any one has more than 5 euros to spend or likes to dress in clothes that you haven't found in a bin somewhere. Has to be the most overrated, boring and tragic city in the world. I feel sorry for anyone that has to live there, you have my sympathy.

I think there are 2 types of 'bikes in trains'. The one is the type I will never understand- sunny and warm outside and they go from 1 station to the next by bike in the city center-->why??? Maybe it's to show off their bikes?! Or maybe just to take space? Then there is the type that makes sense...the people who live in the Berlin borders and come by S-Bahn everyday. You know this Berlin saying "Plan your life without S-Bahn"? It's true, I also have to take it everyday and sometimes I come to my station and it tells me "oh sorry, due to [insert random reason here] this train is not running today" or "this train is only running until..." and leaves you in the middle of nowhere. How to get home then? It's good to have a bike as backup. Although I would try to leave it at some station then instead of carrying it around with me all day.

Well my friends.I found myself in a bar in Australia thisevening.I sat next to a table of Germans slagging off the whole environment which they were enjoying.I made it clear to them I understood every word they were saying and I woukd be more than happy to share their views around the club.Needless to say these creeps left the bar quickly back to their youth hostel to interbreed..Gutless wankers.

I'm a South American who had the chance to visit and stay for a while in Berlin this spring / summer. Because, why not, travelling in Europe is something you have to do. First of all I was not impressed by the architecture it was really ugly but I get it, they try hard to show themselves to the world as hip and alternative, the newer parts are sort of nice but plain looking and not a lot of activity besides commercial activity like malls, etc. Second, the people. In one word, rude, the most rude people I've had to deal with. They had no repairs to assume tell me that I was being sponsored economically by Germany in some way, that I had income from the government. Which by the way is not possible. They never believed me that I was spending my own money, which brings me to... Third, money, Germans in Berlin were always so aggressive when I had to buy things and make transactions, like buying clothes, paying in cash (because in Germany credit cards are the devil apparently) going to nice places, renting a decent apartment/hotel and spending cash. Having money and savings is a sin in Berlin. One of them even asked me how much I make a year, when I told him how much, he even called me a liar in a public place and yelled, He asked, and I simply answered, I had no idea that money was such a sensitive topic. Fourth, obviously racism and xenophobia, I frankly I wasn't expecting this as Germans have all their history but it was a big surprise to experience that they still have a ton of their historical and emotional baggage present today. Clubs are poop and their door policies are ridiculous. In restaurants they would even move you to an isolated table, I cannot imagine what would be like to live there. I've travelled to many places in North America and Asia and I can confidently say that Berlin (and most of Germany) was sincerely a disappointment. I hope I never have to visit that stinky city again. (And this website kinda makes sense after visiting Berlin btw.)

Yeah, I wish I saw this site before coming here - a year ago. I would have at least been able to prepare myself mentally against the people here. Feel lucky that you've only visited here in the spring and summer - everything is 10x as bad in the Winter.

This know-it-all attitude always beats me. You will notice that as soon as they meet you, they being asking questions: what do you do? how long have you been here? Did you finish university? Which university? Then, having gathered this data, they will proceed to judge and teach you things. They will either give you the cold shoulder if you come from an Undesirable Place (middle east, eastern europe, balkans, most of Asia, pretty much 75% of the world) or they will begin to boast how much better Germany is than your country (if you're from western EU, US, Canada, etc.). Some of them will even try and teach you things - I've had one German show me an item (I think it was a bottle) and repeat the German word for it a few times. I was confused at that time until he enlightened me that he wanted to "teach me German, because I should know it".

Also, if you were to spend more time among Berliners, you'd notice that one of their favorite topics is how much they paid for stuff. You know how in other places you come hop out to get lunch and come back and people ask you what you got? In Berlin, Berliners will inevitably ask you how much you paid for that - and if it's >5 euro, they will shake their heads in disappointment.

I think this comes from the fact that they are essentially raised by their government. It takes care of them from the time they're born until they graduate at around 30-35. Then they have a brief stint in a highly regulated world between 35-60, and then they go back to the womb - spend their retirement drinking German beer and traveling the world (probably in order to tell other people back at home how everything else in the world is bad). I almost feel bad for them, but they make my life hell, so I don't really feel bad.

Had to job offers in Berlin and Prague...obviously chose the latter as I still have PTSD from living on Berlin....what can I say? Prague is 1 million times better than Berlin in every way: cheaper, prettier, no piss smell everywhere, courteous and friendly people, no bums everywhere...why people go to Berlin instead is a mystery!

Someone firebombed a car on our street and seriously damaged the little van used by a local small business. Why? Because, 5 kilometers a way, some totally unrelated people were involved in a fight over a totally unrelated squat. The supposed last warriors for justice thought that they would "stand up for their rights" by threatening strangers in the city.

That isn't fighting back, that is attempted extortion. I was somewhat sympathetic to their situation before they started their car firebombing campaign. Now I can't wait for the property owners to clear them all out and make Berlin a better place.

I was just told off by the security of natural history museum. The reason: I charged my phone for 15 minutes. I paid 8 euros for this lame museum (where everything was only in German of course), you got to be f****g kidding me. I'm glad to know that while the stereotype of efficient Germans is bs, at least the stereotype about cheapness is true.

Ah, you are mistaken. Efficiency == cheapness.

See, when a German has had magnificent service at a restaurant, they want to leave a tip. But this has to be efficient, so they round up. If your meal was 23.75, they'll offer a generous tip of 25 cents by rounding up to 24 euros. Cheap _AND_ efficient. Best of all possible outcomes.

Or how about the boxes of "free stuff" that you'll see on the streets? Things like "half a vacuum pipe" or "old Germany D grade romance novels". The best that I've seen was a box of "free glass jars and lids". You know, the stuff that you throw away after you've eaten the jam inside. Ah, it's great to be surrounded by such generous and kind souls, don't you think?

Or, if you work for a German company, you might get a sweet secret santa deal where the agreed on price per gift is a staggering 5 euros. That's about 1.4 kebabs. And you'll get weird looks anytime you want to pay with a note larger than 20 euros. Filthy tourist.

You will also get laughed at if you like craft beer. I mean, you have got to be a batshit crazy tourist to pay above 1 euro for a beer if you can get a beer from Aldi for 40 cents. Also, this craft beer tastes funny, so it's bad. It's not as good as our beer, all of which tastes exactly the same.

they paid 11 euros entry. In the UK museums are free. Why do people have to feel guilty for tap water here or using a plug for 15 mins? Why were the museum management too cheap to translate the captions? No I made a mistake, German is the commerce language of the world. Yes we should all learn the language of modernism and progress...
