German women listen up:
Unless you have the firm supple body of a 19 year old (not to be confused with that of a malnourished Berliner skank), an androgynous look, and a cute twinkle in your eye, you probably don't want to choose short hair.
It does not make you look more professional, just horrendously unattractive.
It is possible to be taken serious, whilst maintain the appearance of a woman!

I don't get it, the people are in far too much of a hurry to waste time on niceties such as smiling, chatting or please and thank you, yet they walk so freaking slowly on the streeys , constantly stopping. And why the hell do they bump into one another so much.... I blame it on their lack of consideration for (or plain awareness of) others

Life amongst germans is as miserable, humourless ,agressive and unfriendly as films and TV led me to believe... quite why I'm so surprised that its true escapes me, but I really am amazed that the majority of the population actually fits the stereotypical german role perfectly... including the laughable evil accents....

Loving the recent comments here all reminds me of how i felt when i lived there. It took me 2 years to finally pluck up the courage to pack up and sell up and get out after last winters miserable illegitimate child berliners, counting my blessings iam not there again this year. Good luck guys and spread the word to any other gullible people who still think that berlin is the coolest most cultural cheap place on the planet.

Berlin is just a collection of Villages. They dont ever want real growth. why else do they cling to their pathetic History? Why else would they all run to this little city? Its because they dont want change...they cant handle their OWN tradition, they want to live in their insipid and marginalized Island of Dog crap and Nettos. Even their language is a joke. The Russians should have finished the job and wiped them out.

The speed of train ticket machines has to shock anyone.
Simply the paramount of the German engineering standard, they must have been so poop German-deep in details that they must have forgotten all the machine needs to do is to fuckin' print. And it never came across their minds that the bills might change in the future.
It will take another quarter of a century for them to get here or will never;

the most dismal grim humorless joyless city i know... i am here way too long going on 5 years. thank god for my foreign friends here, you save my life with your humor and wit, sensitivity and common sense. terms germans/berliners have yet to be acquainted with.
why are there no all night supermarkets and why is everything closed on sundays. the counter argument to which that prides itself on an anti-capitalist stance is as bogus as the anarchist punks begging for money in the subway.
most restaurants suck too. berliners indulge with greedy eyes when they are served large portions of tastless slagged slosh you would not serve in a gulag.
and why is the only semi decent fish you can buy here salmon?
this is a rant, i know. thank you for bearing with me and thank you for this website.

Nothing cool about living in berlin being a cultured person I felt culturally starved and unstimulated, very disapointing place.

The stimulation here is much more desperate. Debauchery, drugs and bad art rule the roost. Plenty of stimulation for those who don't know the difference.

I hate that people hate Berlin. Come on: the rent is still cheap, you can get a Falafel im Brot for 2.50e, the weather isn't arctic, and if you actually ask the cashiers how they are going, 3 times out of 4 they turn all smiles after being treated as more than a Lebensmittel dispenser. Sure, life is harsh and poor here, but if you get your own bubble of good things going, always look downwards to avoid the dog faeces, and avoid the haters, life is surprisingly excellent.

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. In the 6 years I have lived here I have moved 4 times, each move taking me further East. I can honestly say, without a shadow of doubt 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 6 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 have lived in major cities in N. America, Japan, Greece & England and in my experiences as a 'world-liver' I found the Japanese to be the friendliest & most welcoming followed by the Brits, then the N. Americans & Greeks, which unfortunately leaves the Germans sorely lacking in smiley faces. If cheap rent & falafel are it takes to make you happy then by all means enjoy your stay here. However, before you condemn others for disliking Berlin (on a site called BerlinHater) it might be a good idea to realize that not everyone has the option or opportunity to create a "bubble of good things" around themselves...
