I came to Berlin for a job in a startup. No professionals, just some average bit entreprenorial darlings that think they're hot shots. Not generalising, but most of the startups are bullshit. A lame ripoff and stolen ideas brought to this Sillicon Valley wannabe city. Also, the angel investors are the new gamblers. I cannot believe that people are funding crap ideas and execution without being infected with some sort of microbe. Also, "everyone is unique, just like everyone else" seems to be the best way to describe Berliners. Same style, same artsy fartsy concept. Overly vegan, overly feminist, overly gay, overly cool. Everyone is trying to find themselves & shit. I am still giving it a chance for now... let's see. If not going back to EasternEurope, man. They're genuine there!
Came here for the hate. Thank you

"Genuine". LOL. Berlin has substituted half of the population within the last 20 years. One third of population are from foreign countries or have "migration background". Growth of 50,000 people each year.

Your LOL does not make sense, because that is exactly what "genuine" in this context means. There is no migration background in the past 20 years in that part of Europe I was talking about. Conclusion drawn according your statement.
Try again and LOL back later when you make sense on the topic. Cheers!

You stated "genuin" as a thing you like in other (eastern Europe) cities. If you wanted to find authenticity, Berlin is the worst city in Europe for this. Not only because of the Fall of the Wall and the last 20 years, also the history before, starting with the Gruenderzeit in the mid 19th century. In the mid 19th century the population of Berlin doubled within 20 years and 4-fold until 1900. Only 40% of population in late 18th century was born in Berlin, similar to the situation now. Than the WWII and the cold war. A place of continuously change and challenging developments.

With the start-up scene you are right. Overrated and pampered by politics. Maybe also typical of Berlin...

That sounds about right now. I assume it was misunderstood in the first place as I meant exactly what you explained now. No people "authenticity" here... only a bunch of "liberated free spirits" that militate for a "fast-forward" thinking. Try to go in a club and ask people to piss on you like in Berghain somewhere in EE. They will "fast forward think" the poop out of you until you find Jesus again. Exagerrating now, but maybe it's a more sane not to leave everyone exercit they dark deep desires in society under the Berlin label of liberation. My ass!

Honestly the concept and definition of Migrationshintergrund is just thinly veiled propaganda the left can use to talk about how diverse Germany is and how hard working "foreigners" are while the right uses it to lament about crime and unemployment statistics (people with Migrationshintergrund also get to fill out a nice, lengthy questionnaire from the job center if they ever collect ALG1). It includes everyone who has at least one parent who wasn't born in this trash hole. Even if one of their parents, whom they have never even met, moved to Germany from Austria when he or she was three years old. Really strange of destatis to collect statistics like that, especially with the much espoused free movement of people. But we all know you can never become a German, even if you literally become a German (through naturalization).

Yeah, no matter how you use the term Migrationshintergrund it ends up really discriminating. For instance - at the university, you have this standard phrase for applications for student jobs, that people with MH are favored, especially women. In a way, Mh sounds like being disabled. What about the competences of the applicant?

Berlin is a psychopathic lover who keeps dragging you back with empty promises, she will take away your self respect, your money, your optimism and positivity, run, NOW, don't stay, because you WILL regret it. In five years time you'll look back as say to yourself "WTF was that all about".

Berlin is my hometown and growing up in this city really shapes who you are as a person. I lived in many different places like Melbourne, New York or Mexico City and none of these places touched my heart as much as Berlin did. I always thought it is because it is home and I would never love another city like I love my place of birth but reading this article and the comments shows me that my love for Berlin is not only feeling home but really feeling the character of Berlin.

Don't let them define your beliefs. The ones you can identify are more a subculture and you're right about having to fit their image and attitude to be accepted. There are probably many more who believe in more decentralized decision making but don't strongly align as "anarchist" and don't advertise their beliefs in their appearance. You would never know unless you had a deep political discussion with them and they trusted you.

Just think about humans outside of current civilization, which is a very tiny spec in our history. We evolved making decisions as needed in groups. The top down structure we live under now is not at all in tune with how we evolved, which is why there is so much political and related tensions. If we made decisions as needed without interference and political parties, we wouldn't be talking about people as "far right", "leftists", "anarchists", etc. Of course, there will always be disagreements and wrong choices can be made, but that still happens the way things are now and the division among people is far beyond that.

I could maybe slowly adapt to the grey dreary weather, the psychopathic German psyche with it’s ww1/nazi/ww2 and communism hang ups, while slowly dying inside over the years. But when you add the international hipster crowd to the mix, it just becomes too much to tolerate. I can’t deal with both alcoholic xenophobic schizoid middle aged/old Germans and also young international hipsters pretending to be poor and/or creative because they enjoy the gritty ambiance/degeneracy of Berlin.

Think of the douchiest, most pretentious hipsters and fake creative types in Brooklyn, London, Paris, San Francisco, etc and transport them to Berlin. I’m talking about THE most annoying of the annoying. Make them even more pretentious and annoying by giving them a "new city" to use as their hipster playground, since they seem to think they are special for living in Berlin. Make them yet somehow even more annoying, by having them either constantly complain about gentrification/rising rents (which they somehow think they are not a part of) and/or about how cheap Berlin is. They have such little self-awareness, they can't see that the Germans despise them. Especially the working class Germans in poor areas such as in Neukolln. You can see Germans nearly spitting on them as they pass them by on the street in Neukolln. Even the Turks in Kreuzberg look like they want to spit on them, yet the hipsters either ignore it or have such little self-awareness, they cannot see how unwanted they are in the neighborhoods they take over. These hipsters are typically far left types yet they think the poverty in Berlin is just fashion/part of the ambiance of Berlin. Many of them have never had a real job or worked a day in their lives.

I think anyone who stays in Berlin is either a) a German who doesn’t know any better and since infancy they have been trained to be an obedient, robotic, soulless German who can never think for themselves, so it’s no problem for them b) a brain dead, soulless hipster who never had a mind or a soul to lose or c) someone who once did have a brain and soul but they lost both slowly, after living in Berlin for years.

Random but wanted to add:
If you want to “test” how robotic, obedient minded etc Germans are, ask them about the EU. Almost all of them think the EU is basically god, and anyone criticizing the EU is immediately viewed with extreme suspicion. Ready to call you a nationalist, fascist and so on. i’m not even talking about discussing the UK leaving the EU or other countries leaving etc. I’m just talking about being critical of the EU and it’s policies. Even for that, they cannot have a discussion or talk openly about it. They have a very scary totalitarian type mentality which has now spread all over Europe because the EU keeps expanding and let’s face it- the EU *is* Germany/is a vehicle for Germany. I do think there is a possibility Germany will cause another huge war or even WW3. Keeping so many countries in an undemocratic union against their will, when they are economically and socially suffering, will not have a good end result. Germans will NEVER learn from their history.

You can't instantly find friends due to not being like the normal masses when so many others are just as edgy or even more so. The ones you think are like you see you as an outsider since they were there before you and that's all they really have to distinguish themselves. If you're that type of person who needs to feel special just by how you look and the fact you're into art and certain music, I suggest moving to a smaller or non-western city.

Clearly this person hasn't spent much time in a real city. Most of the so called "creatives" in Berlin all dress, look, act and are the same. There is very little diversity in appearance/personality/style/etc. Must be a German, since they seem to think Berlin qualifies as a big city and thinks Berliners are edgy.

Germans simply live in harmony with nature. They exress anger like nature exresses thunder. This way there is always sunshine and fresh air around. They don't have to bite back with their anger, they know it gotto be purely expressed. Cause what would be the point of trying to cause harm with it when the pure expression does everything and when causing harm does actually bias such expression. I mean they're not stupid, to cause bad karma, atst they don't try to be perfectionistic about it cause it is what it is. Really common sense people.

Just that often it also matters the perception. When instead of anger there would be then relief. Or lets say through expression often comes change of perception.

I also don't think anymore the world is full of morons, i know for sure that's not really it. You know some thoughts...I don't really have an opinion on it.

I'm from Paris and i wanted to escape the grumpiness/rudness/awefulness of Parisians by moving to Berlin. What a joke. I started to come here twice a year, all seasons to see if i could move here. As i saw people less worse than Parisians(and less expensive obviously, because the life in Paris is as pooping as here, but in a different style), i moved here.

My first 2 months were great (even if it was in January), i found the next week i arrived, a beautiful wg/flat on Rosenthalerstr, with an adorable berliner girl (there is some exceptions) who is the nicest/joyful berliner i've ever met, so i thought yeaah Berliners are the most amazing people! Then in the same week i found an amazing job in an expat brand working with only expat people, i'm still working there, and this place is my little heaven of everything-except-german place. I love to go to work.

The whole "holy poop this place is a nightmare" popped up out of my head, when a night i had a dinner with 2 spanish guys i met the day before, this night, i felt so happy, so much warm, joyful and i had an amazing time with these two guys, and after the diner that's when i realized that this feeling was almost sucked out of my soul by these grumpy/evil Berliners.
From this day im counting the days till i'm escaping this hell. I'm only sad about leaving my work, because i love my job, i'm lucky to work in a so chill and creative,optimistic and happy environnement with super cool people, without that i would become a soulless berliner!

When i arrived here i was optimistic, joyful, wanted to integrate with germans, started to meet german people, they all have now disappeared from my life (their friendship was fake obviously), i hate taking the u8 to go to work everyday, having 10 same beggars a day asking me money for their fix or booze. Dealing with grumpy people everywhere, cold as ice, and this fake "creativity" with pooping art everywhere. I love culture, books, architecture and arts in general coming from this background, and all i can say is here it's only pooping galleries or "conceptual aweful exhibitions" or this ugly TASCHELES which is above ugliness and hopefully doesn't exist anymore. I also can't stand the dirtyness of this place, it's dirtier in Paris so i let you imagine my city...
This place is a joke only for loosers and lost souls.

I'm a person full of joy, optimistic, beyond happiness, friendly, nice, clean and extremely polite to people, really open minded and open in general, i love meeting new people, i have ambitions and projects in life, have a large background and studies, i'm curious and love cultivate myself with a bunch of books, documentaries, travels and so on, this place is not for people like us. i repeat. THIS . PLACE. IS .NOT. FOR. US. AT.ALL.

An advice still, if you need to stay in Berlin while waiting to escape this place:
-only stick with expats
-avoid germans the most that you can
-stay at home with nice books/movies/wine
-keep treating yourself right
-do diners at home with expats
-think about the fact that you could be in place much worse than that (even if it looks like the bottom of hell)
-and do not give a fornicate about everything beside your own happiness, to save your soul from this doomed place

And what about doing a Berlinhater hangout somewhere someday? I would love to meet my fellow berlinhater like me :)

We gonna survive this place till we escape, we must stay strong!!!

because i think first, a lot of berliners/germans speak french, i don't know why, but it seems that a lot of berliners learned french at school when they were younger,(half of my berliner friends speak french) maybe germans in general? i was last week in munich and a lot of munichers tends to speak french too, so it might be the reason, but it's just for practicing their french that they talk to us nicely sometimes... and i know that french people tend to stay discreet and low profile in the city (speaking of partying all broken up in the streets for exemple), so maybe that's why germans tolerate us more than other countries... French people tend to have a behavior a little bit close to germans for the "what people gonna think of me" for everything, so they know how to fond in the berliner mass... it's just suppositions, except that i don't see the reasons...

But this is also the case in English sometimes. I would never meet people in my leisure time, with whom I have to speak English. My need for English is satisfied enough in the daily office work , with my colleagues, the clients and the HQ in the USA.

I totally agree that they need to reorganize childhood education in Germany but not by taking away toys. What a bunch of nut cases. The goal should be to prevent more automatons and blind rule followers. Allow them to compete, teach them to see things from other viewpoints and help out the weak from a standpoint of compassion.

It's funny - as an expat, every inch of you gets judged by Germans who lack the capability to live outside of Germany.

Here is the best line ever from Maria's post below, actually, it's all brilliant:

Politics - mostly they are deranged wannabe anarchist pseudo leftist types who think they are “free" while being dependent on the German government, alcohol and drugs. Lots of SJW, 5th wave feminist type of brain damaged morons who find Berlin to be a mecca for their ilk.
