This site just socks as much as the city. People who have nothing to do but complaining about things you find in every bigger city around the world. Boring and dirty places with cold and unfriendly people.

People need a space to vent their frustrations and disillusion about the most hyped city of the 21st century. Nothing wrong with that. Nobody hypes Prague that much anymore because everyone is now hip to Prague's bullcrap. People are just starting to wake up to the overwhelming negative energy and fraudulence of Berlin's "culture," which really died decades ago. Now the city is just running on hot air, smoke and mirrors--take all that away and Berlin's "scene" won't last another week.

As someone who has lived in major cities throughout the world (New York, Tokyo, London and Toronto) I can honestly say that Berliners are most definitely a very special breed of cold, unfriendly, xenophobic people. So much so that even Germans themselves have name for their disgusting behaviour: Berliner Schnauze (The Berlin Snout). This site is actually quite fabulous as it not only allows people to vent their frustrations in a safe environment but also shows new visitors that they are not alone in their negative experiences of Berlin.

This site also warns potential newcomers about what they might encounter in the city. That is mainly the reason why I keep checking this site from time to time, to help others not to make the same mistake I did. Some would say that "Berlin isn't for everyone" but how I see it is more like "you will end up hating the city sooner or later, just give it some time."

My talk with a local guy:

the guy: Berlin is certainly the best place in the world!
me: how do you know, have you ever lived outside the city?
the guy: no, I was risen in Stegliz and live in Wedding.
me: so how do you know? And why you drink now with me so heavily? Are you happy in your life?
the guy: no. I'm depressed.
me: so how can you say, that Berlin in the best city to live, when you are not happy self...

Pretty much everybody on this site had such conversations with local people.

Dont you just love how Wedding is trying so desperately to become the new Prenzlauerberg? But only for the broke assed Berliners that cant afford to live in Prenzlauerberg. Which happens to be MOST native Berliners.

I'm growing to love the City more and more as I no longer set foot in Kreuzberg, Friedrichshain or Neukoelln but at the same time, there are still gripes that get me on a daily basis.
1) In this sweltering heat, I don't give a poop if it hurts your neck. I am opening the freaking window on this pissing S-Bahn train whether you like it or not.
2. People (and usually self proclaimed Left Wing tolerant people) from other areas of Germany complaining about Gentrification. You are Gentrification you absolute Fotze.
3. Left Wing Tolerant people defining who is a good and a bad foreigner. White Middle Class professional bad, refugee good. I'm all for open borders but this notion should apply to everyone.
4. Right Wing/Conservative bellends defining who is a good and bad Foreigner. White working good, black asylum seeker bad. fornicate off you ignorant Dummkopfchen.

Their silly little might games. If you run and hurry to catch the bus, they wait until you are nearly at the door to take off. Getting angry knocks at the door and a yelled insult is their satisfaction. At least made one person pissed angry already that day.

There are many places worse than Berlin. Trust me,I'm 53 and have lived many places round the world. What's bad about Berlin is the attitude of people coming from elsewhere trying to alter it to fit their preconceived notions of what it is. If any of you were my age,and I suspect very few of you are,you would've known a very special city years ago that was unique in the world. It's now a mere Disney version of itself with an invisible wall of stupidity replacing the former real one. I still like certain natural aspects of the city,ie.parks,lakes and nature. The hipster bubble was predictable ever since the speculators started buying everything up and raising rents.....many years now. I highly suggest to anyone who doesn't enjoy the city to leave and find their ideal city somewhere else. I myself have a family here so I shall continue on here in some fashion. Try looking at the beauty of past history here and more nature. Stinky penner on trains exist in all populated cities and they aren't really all that unusual here. Ride a bike,take a walk....avoid clubs and nightlife if you have problems with party people- best clue: go out on a weeknight and leave the city on weekends.

Your opinion of Berlin really depends on your situation & location. Living in a predominantly foreign (or at least accepting of foreigners) area where your native language or accented German may be easily understood makes a massive difference to your experience of the city and the locals.
I am in my 40's, married to a German and have lived here for 7 years in both the West & East areas of the city. I can honestly say, that although not the friendliest people on the planet, West Berliners are absolutely more pleasant than those in the East...and by East I mean the areas past the cultural & language melting pots of Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg & Prenzlauer Berg.

I look like a stereotypical German: blonde hair, blue eyes, pale complexion (but with an always pleasant expression) - I speak German - I married a German (not a Berliner) - my child was born here so is also German...I am polite & pleasant yet, in the 7 years I have been living in Berlin I have been treated rudely on a near daily basis: everything from the typical German heavy sigh & eye roll for no apparent reason to being shoved with shopping carts while waiting in line at the supermarket because I didn't move into the 1cm of 'empty' space in front of me. I've accepted the fact that living in Berlin means dealing with the above crap every day. It saddens me that rudeness/coldness seem to be an integral part of German culture. (and it is absolutely awful when it is directed at my young child.)

I've been here a year and a half now but can't wait to get out of this city. There is no solid jobs-even for Germans, not cheap anymore especially when it comes to rent... And lots of people take drugs and judging me that I am narrow minded person who doesn't take drugs. Weather sucks, even summer this year is not a summer. And I don't get most of Germans I met here think Berlin is the best city ever! Of course they never lived in other countries... People in ubahn are miserable, ugly and sad. Service in General is the worst ever and German guys are super weird to date. Cheap city, cheap people. I will leave soon. I can't take it anymore.

Happy to see mor people are finally being honest about the reality of what berlin and germans are like. As club culture has now almost finally burnt itself out most clubbers who live there wont be there in 10 years time and with it all other artistic people will leave, its already now now different to other cities in terms of rent in europe and you cant compare berlin to london or paris its a fooqing joke.

The terribly terribly dull buildings the vast majority inhabit. They seem intentionally designed to be as miserable looking as possible, and the desperate attempts some go to to brighten them up with jaunty colors seems to emphasise the featureless architecture

I occasionally come back here to read peoples comments now that i left and hopefully will never live there again. It just gets worse, the latest influx of inhabitants are Aussies "Boiler Room Kids" with little or no level of Artistic culture or exposure to other races, these are the next ones to run Berlins creative music circle of whats now left of it. The bubble burst a long time ago, its now cheap butt tourists and the next dregs of hopefulls from shittly places like Australia, there are no decent cheap places left to live and fornicate all to do apart from drink beer and go to an pooping boring club playing house music.
