If you studied at Cooper Union, Rhode Island School of Design, Parsons, Central St Martins or Chelsea College of Art, you'll love it in Berlin. It's full of people who have no understanding of statistics, compound interest, GDP, tax evasion vs tax avoidance, macroeconomics... basically anything which doesn't involve electronic music, fass beer or world views from the Guardian. You'll also be more than welcome to talk about those topics, organise protests and do any other form of virtue signalling, without ever being able to solve the problem or percieved problem. You'll also be bank rolled by Munich and Frankfurt so you can continue acting like a teenager indefinately.

Indirectly you are benefitting. Unfortunately most of the money is not spent on applying new paint or bringing charm to the city. Without the Länderfinanzausgleich, Berlin would be even worse. I know it's hard to imagine. All those art collectives and dj squat parties are not going to pay for the city.

Can some of you Berlin hater guys, who lived or visited other German cities like Frankfurt, Köln, Kiel, Leipzig, Hamburg, München tell me if there is any difference between Berlin and the other German cities ?
All I see here is homeless punks, ugly graffiti, g***ies causing trouble, bad neighborhoods like Neuköln and Kreuzberg, people behaving like robots (someone said that in the previous posts) Da*n, my expectations were different from the reality. A lot of people say that Berlin does not belong to Germany and yeah, this is absolutely true,all this multicultural drama, I'm not sure if I'm living in Berlin or I'm lost somewhere in space. There was a guy who posted something on facebook like "If you are looking for the typical German culture, you wont find it in Berlin" so yeah guys my question is, is there still hope in other German cities ? Thanks and sorry for any mistakes I'm not that good with my English.

I mean, it depends what you are looking for. I moved out a year ago and live in a small town in the south western part of Germany and while people are a lot nicer and open in comparison, they still got a broom up their asses. I honestly don't know what "real German culture" is supposed to be besides being rudely blunt, drinking lots of beer, having a dark humor and general cynicism, being extremely distant and cold to others, always striving for perfection and being pretty close-minded on several areas in comparison to much more lively cultures. Protip: if you're from ANY nation in the southern hemisphere, you best stay away from Germany altogether. Your liveliness really won't be appreciated and before you know it you'll lose it and will be distant and emotionless like them.

Totally second the other reply, I lived in two other German cities, and whilst it was in many ways much better, there was still a stiffling unfriendliness, and conservative rule worshipping (Berlin seems to take this too far the opposite direction sometimes). They weren't fun places, but they were more liveable I guess.

I lived in another city in Germany and I didn't like it at all. It was all the same shite but with different skyline. I started to think that it was my problem but after I moved out of Germany everything was better up to now, I've started to forget Germany and I'm actually happy about it.

Can please some of you guys who lived for a long time in Berlin tell me, is it common the weather in Berlin to be so f**ckin bad ??? Gray sky, rainy each day etc ? It makes me really depressed :( In my country if the weather is bad, the next day is sunny again, but in Berlin the sky stays gray for months :x maybe that's why most of the people there have awful mood...

Take vitamin D and you feel better and not so "sedated and numb" so to say. The downside tho is that you will see in full color how miserable and annoying other Germans are.

Today I finally made my mind and I decided to move to another country. I don't have a real job proposal or a solid plan yet but after seeing recent German attitudes towards foreigners (myself included) I decided to move and leave this place for good. What has changed? For starters, I always thought Germans were kinda quirky in their ways, but I was like, whatever. It's their lives as long as they don't interfere with mine. And Germans used to see foreigners like something really alien, something novel. I guess that's because during all their history they've never experienced influx of different people or cultures. But now due to recent events we are all familiar with it seems to me that they turned from a naive approach to foreigners to something more dangerous and dare I say, xenophobic. I've had this impression for a long time but I was in denial. Berlin no longer feels safe and the worst part is that people like to blame it on immigrants or more recently on refugees. But that is not true, Germans attack refugees centers, Germans attack innocent people, it used to be with indeference, but now it has turned more violent. It's not only a "young gang" problem, it goes beyond that. I am a long time resident of Berlin and it's been a really difficult decision for me to make. But now I realize that Germans have to learn to live together with others and not everyone in the world is German or knows the German way and most importantly Germans need to adapt to the world and not the other way around. But that will take years and maybe several decades to happen. After all this new generation of young fascists have learnt their lessons and maybe, just maybe, the next generation will be more open to people in general. Maybe because they or their parents grew up with people with different genetic backgrounds, thing that seems to me be of the utmost importance to Germans today. I don't have the time to wait for that to happen. And I don't want to be oppressed for the rest of my life. So I am going to change my life because seeing synagogues (and temples of other religions) militarized and children being protected by the police in fear of hate attacks is not something I want to do for the rest of my life. I am afraid of the change I am about to make, but it seems to be that is the only choice. Farewell Berlin, I really hope you change for the best someday.

One of the first intrusive, irrelevant question germans ask after meeting someone: DO YOU HAVE A Ph.D?
No as$hole I don't, why do you ask that question in the first place?
They'll want to brag about having a Phd for hours on end, as if it meant something, they are all employed anyways. They go to university until they're 35 or something because mommy and daddy pay for their useless, meaningless lifestyle.
They judge and label people demanding on what degree they have or don't have.
I might not have a Phd u idiot but I sure have the social skills required to live my life without looking/sounding like a freaking retarded robot like ya'll fuckin' Berliners do.
What a bunch of sad retarded pricks

Get this: My landlord calls themselves in front of me - a genuinely sensitive person who pays way too much attention to people around me - "a sensitive person". Proceeds to trash talk me on telephone after I showed my apartment to a couple of people since I need to move out soon, telling me flat-out that it "stinks" and it dirty. DIRTY. Because I hadn't thrown the trash away (that literally doesn't have any smell cause it's all plastic and syropor) immediately since I don't want to waste trash bags if they're not full. is2g these people look for mistakes so vigorously. I swear these days I feel like I'm going to break. Nothing you do is ever right. Can't even clean the freaking house and think to yourself: man, I did a good job. I did my best. No. These people will sooner or later push you into that apathetic state where it's a necessary self-defense mechanism. I feel so freaking dead inside. I don't want to communicate with people anymore because even at the most casual conversation people constantly overstep boundaries and go into a dong-measuring contest with or without your consent. Like freaking chill. I've had depression and suicidal thoughts for over 3 years. You poor, ~~sensitive snowflake~~, you. You don't know sensitive. You're just touchy about yourself. fornicate you.

For two years I've lived here, Germans have told me almost weekly: "why don't you go back to Africa?" That's fine. It's a great advice actually. I will go to Africa next week, to a resort in Morocco that most Berliners can't afford anyway and then back home to America and never come back to Europe. Thanks for the advice racist pricks.

OP here. Moreover German taxes are a load of shit. They take almost 50% of your income and for what? Really, I cannot think of anything that my taxes were good for. Not even health, I had to pay my own bills or my own insurance which by the way are not cheap at all.

I've been here eight years and get subtle and not-so-subtle insults daily. I am a Black American. The people here can only relate to you if you are a shucking and jiving clowning Negro. If you are serious about anything they avoid you like the plague, mainly because they are not only fascists at heart, but superficial swine scared of anything beautiful, anything truly deep and intelligent. Nordic culture is a curse upon humanity. And Berlin is the finest example there is of straight-out, redneck cracker culture.

OP here, My taxes definitely didn't go to the city infrastructure. I also agree with @BerlinSucks. Germans cannot understand the concept of a "black engineer" or a "black artist" or even a "black who isn't a refugee/terrorist". God forbid if they find a black person who is better at what they do. Before coming to Europe I had the idea that European people were educated and sophisticated but now all I see now are European rednecks everywhere. I know not all European people are like that, I've met many decent European people here but boy oh boy there are a lot white trash in Berlin and in Germany. Also fornicate PEGIDA. They say they are against islamification but they will attack anybody they don't like. I saw them once ganging up against a bunch of Italians with and women and children. Even now it makes me feel sick.

I'm not sure how can I put this into words but Berliners like to (over)use words like "cool" and "sexy" when referring to the city. But in reality all I can think is the word LAME. Berlin is LAME, filled with lame people, lame places, lame jobs. Natives often say the city is vibrant and freedom is a top priority of its citizens but it's not, they do what they do because of boredom. Because they have literally nothing better to do with their lives. Nothing better to do than do some cheap butt drugs waiting for their lives to end. LAME.
