The "tolerant left-wing"(in the loosest sense of the term) people who are the most intolerant people in the freaking world. Neo Nazis are bad, we get it. Just thank your lucky freaking stars that they are in such a minority in this country, that they are almost completely irrelevant on the political landscape. Of course though, 20,000 AntiFa kids will turn up at every single demonstration or every single place where one person has a shaved head and claim they are living within the 4th Reich. Take a leaf out of the rest of the developed world's book and laugh at the cunts, stop pretending they are a massive threat to you and your cosy white middle-class German existence.

That brings me on to the Anti-Deutsch. What is wrong with these people? WE GET IT, YOUR ANCESTORS KILLED A LOT OF PEOPLE. If you continue to exacerbate the problem by telling everyone Foreign that they are under attack and living in a Nazi Hellhole, how will things get any better? Wake up the freaking reality of Germany 2014, it's not as bad as you stupid kids like to believe and have everyone else believe.

On a more superficial note: I hate British people with double-barrelled surnames and bottomless bank accounts who move to Neukoelln, Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain to do absolutely fornicate all useful apart from drink, take drugs and pretend they are living some sort of Bowie-esque creative dream, dressed like Joseph and his technifuckingcolour raincoat, despite having endless cash.

THE OBSESSION WITH JUDAISM. Meine gute. If I meet one more German who pretends he or she is Jewish or has Jewish roots or has some massive connection to Israel, just because their ancestors committed the worst genocide in history, I'll commit one of my own. I mean, seriously? Do you think that's what the global Jewish community want? A load of guilty Germans sympathising with the cause. Of course NOT.

You people describing the worst aspects as you see it are actually reminding me why I like Berlin. I come from a place full of people like you. All "professionals" (thats actually an anagram of "assholes") , everythings shiny and clean, everyone stinks of some kind of expensive chemical cocktail, every third csr is a Nercedes, every fifth a Bentley and every tenth one a Ferrari (I am exaggerating only very slightly) This place (a small town in England) is freaking hell to endure if you dont own a Jaguar or wear Armani, every day for your lot in my "home" is a freaking fashion parade and for me being insulted by strangers for the way I look, dress, dont cut the mustard.

I go to Berlin and I feel like Im at home. Nobody gives a fuck. The very thing you hate is a) what I like about it and b) why your tribe of shiny happy assholes are turning every city on Earth into clone-zone...and I dont mean the fetishwear shop.

Yes, you are right, your freaking "professionals" are going to do the same to Berlin. Ive seen it happening. Well take care what you wish for. Someday you wont be considered up to the shiny standard either...and where will you have to escape to?

The worst thing about Berlin is that in parts we have to meet assholes with your attitudes.

Name a city in UK of which 30% plus of the area is comprised of lake and forest. Name a place in the UK where you can fornicate truly beautiful women in clean regulated businesses, for a standard 60 Euros a time. Women who are not just cnnilingual but multi-lingual and strive assiduously to achieve a result...way beyond the allotted time. Name a town in UK where you can go on a range any day and hire a fifty calibre Desert Eagle for the kick of it. Where in UK can you take a parachute jump at a site inside the city boundaries...maybe there is somewhere, Londo has such a humongusly exaggerated definition of the chunk of Britain that its "greater" area encompasses...but thats cheating. Which British town has an indoor tropical resort (Center Parcs on steroids, in the worlds largest single volume structure) right on its boundaries.

Now dont get me wrong, London is on a balance of criteria probably the greatest city on Earth and has been since the fall of Rome. No, Berlin is not a "real city" in the way that Paris or London is.

When I first read this post I thought, meh let the trolls take care of him but this ramble has some interesting material I'd like to talk about now. First, about me, I mainly follow this site because I like to witness how people have sudden insights (and I like to contribute with my two cents) and might finally get to escape from Berlin, it's like watching people running away from the Matrix, because that's what happened to me and how I felt. That's why I like sharing my thoughts here so no more people can get ensnared in that shit-ho-le called Berlin.

"I wear jeans and a leather overcoat. I'm in my fifties. Try telling me you don't wear designer labels and the latest haircut / beard.

Dude in his 50s, probably married to a German waifu, maybe a kid-teenager child, don't mind me, just doin' some profiling.

"Name a place in the UK where you can fornicate truly beautiful women in clean regulated businesses, for a standard 60 Euros a time.

Now, that is more like it, that's Berlin, a dude in his 50s who's grateful for clean 60€ hookers who work past the 1h time limit, dude, you sound like the guy who said that Berlin is great because it has 2€ doeners.
And a .50 caliber Desert Eagle, this is before or after the hooker? You should check out the deep south all, the hookers you can f-uck plus the biggest badass weapons you can get and Wendy's or deep fried chicken if you prefer. Yea, very very classy, wait I was looking for the word trashy.
Dude, you are just reinforcing the stereotype of a white trashy Berliner, just stop embarrassing yourself.

"From the hatchet faced Kommandant who shrieks "I don't speak English...this is Germany...""

More white trash stuff but now from the locals.

"You just wont get it"

We always don't get it, or maybe we're too uncool or not hip enough.
Oh, but we do get it, You don't like professionals and capitalism is shit. Great, many people feel the same way, even professionals themselves, enslaved in a 9-5 job. If you think that Berlin is the place to escape to, your personal utopia, that's great too, I'd personally prefer a beach in Spain-Italy or maybe Pattaya, or if I was into some hippy-hippster stuff a commune lost in some random state where you can go to Burning Man every year.
The fact is that the world you grew up in is very different to the world, I think, many of the younger people in this website grew up in. I am not gonna dismiss your point here, your quest for uniqueness is remarkable (calling us clones was a little off the line though) so you arrived to Berlin in the late 90s I'm guessing. I know Berlin was a blast back then. Probably you even met your current partner in the 2000s but I'm just guessing. I guess younger generations are a little bit more pessimistic and disappointed than yours and more socially aware too. So for us, what we see in Berlin, is not as close as what you saw back in the day, everything is more competitive and rough in the real world and Berlin is just a joke if you keep seeing it long enough. That's what people mean when they say that Berlin is not a real city not that shi-t about different neighbors. Have you ever wondered why the average duration of young Europeans migrating to Germany is less than one year (yes, that statistic is real). It's because young Europeans don't see your Berlin. They see the post 2010 Berlin, a bland, gray city, without opportunities. But hey, you still can slack off in life and party while I still live in Berlin right? Wrong. They see a city where they can party, nothing special, just like any other city, so when it comes to pay the bills and have a real life with some meaning well forget about it, everyone will prefer another city. But the hipsters who live here!!!!!! well be grateful, they are injecting some real cash into your city. Because frankly, I don't know why they don't live in a nicer place.

"Yes, Berlin is dysfunctional, dirty, aggravating, but I still prefer it to Shiny Town UK where I ...cant say "live", but exist. "

Your call man, enjoy the cheap hookers. Plus there are more in life than that y'know, that the worst about Berlin, it blinds you to the nice things in life that can be found elsewhere so what you see in Berlin is all that there is. So that's the worst thing about Berlin, not professionals coming to your town. You think that people in Berlin don't give a fornicate about how much you own and that's the reason you feel comfortable even though the rest of the world do. I mean, seriously? Germans (even Berliners) are extremely superficial and greedy, now we can talk about “assholes with attitudes”. If they don't have dough they will act as if they don't care (hurr durr I'm an artist, imma punk...) but when they get it, oh man it gets ugly, so much so that they make fund babies look like the most cultured and educated people around...

The self-assurance of a health insurance official at a major, major office in Berlin who informs the line of non-natives, “In Deutschland wird deutsch gesprochen” (“In Germany, one speaks German”). Right... For anyone who attempts at German, even advanced speakers, mind you, you are likely to be humiliated, corrected, shouted at more often, so you might as well resort to English and save yourself the bitter cultural learning lessons.

most overrated and boring place i lived. one of the best life changing decisions i made. There is nothing to do on the mostly rainy cold days culturally unless you pay for it. And on the sunny ones where do you go apart from to a pooping outdoor techno event. Everyone moans and smells, and the food places and bakeries are laughable. Slowly the sheepish party tourists and djs will leave in the next couple of years and local berliners will be left with high rents as the previous tourists will have put the price of everything up. Come to visit for a few days but dont live here the fotos here do it justice.

You must have such little imagination or ingenuity!! Like all the gay people who have to stay in Schöneberg because it's the 'gay area' then complain that there's not much to do once you've visited Mutscmann's and bought their little 'must have' items from MrB.

Think a little and investigate. Open your eyes!! I'm not saying it's perfect. Yes the “In Deutschland wird deutsch gesprochen” (“In Germany, one speaks German”) thing does exist but only by those with a chip on their shoulder, those who think it's their right to live forever in someone else's apartment and pay 95€ a month for the privilege FOREVER or until they decide to move on but won't because rents have risen (it's 2014 folks!!!), (wake-up!!).

Berlin is changing, yes but it's not the rip-off hell-hole like London is. Lets all hope it doesn't end up like that or even worse, Paris, Rome!!

The 'Category 3s' as I call them (previously mentioned earlier), who have lived here forever and are secretly pissed-off that the wall came down and now have no reason to be miserable are gladly dieing out and taking their bad taste/fashion (and bad breath), with them - “In Deutschland wird deutsch gesprochen” my freaking arse! Gladly, a new Berlin is developing. 'Category 3's' are becoming 'Category 1's' and a few '2s' making it a more tolerant place.
((They just need to adhere to the public smoking ban. What a farce that is Merkel/Wowereit..!
I really want to fill my lungs up with second-hand smoke and feel and small like an ash tray the next morning, don't I?!! - Stop!! I'm getting like the rest of the wingers on this site!))

Anyway, if you open your tired, bitter little eyes, you'll see Berlin as a refreshingly green, relatively unpolluted, free, safe city, a bit rough round the edges but still avoiding (in the main), to rip everyone off!

Enjoy Paris my friend...! ;-)
