I'll be visiting Berlin after leaving there 1year ago. My rules for having a good time is as follows:
1) Dont talk to any Germans.
2)Ignore the stares...and often stare BACK.
3)Only let my non-German friends know Im in town.
4)Decline all meals offered by my German Host.
5)Get to Prague as SOON as possible.
6)Be kind to/Help as many Tourists as possible in English!
7)Never ask a Berliner how they are doing. For it often ruins my f**king mood.

The worst being the people making those comments while they actually LIVE HERE. Fuck!ng hell I get this everyday "what??? You don't like living here? But it is so cool!"
And I'm always like "im not sure we're living in the same city"
In a nutshell, if you aren't a soulless drone addicted to drugs and alcohol, and if you actually value real warm human beings, this place isn't for you.

And that's only because it happened in the metro and it made it to the news. There are tons of similar incidents unreported that people simply ignore because you know, racism and xenophobia are normal in Berlin.

Berlin is THE worst place in the world. I hate everything about Berlin and Germany. I feel cheated by the cretins who told me it is an amazing city and I'll learn so much! No one freaking tells you jack crap about all the paper work and restrictions and taxes before you arrive! I just hate it so much. I'm currently home visiting for a week but I fly back tomorrow and I just keep crying knowing I have to go back but I have no where else to go. My amazing partner is in berlin so I can't leave but as soon as he's finished uni I'm leaving and taking him with me! I CANT TAKE IT ANYMORE! It's nothing more than a shallow dark cesspit. Local people are rude and ignorant, the "expats" are mostly rich hipster kids freelancing as an artist voluntarily living in squalor because it's "cool" but still getting money from daddy back home, or immigrants who look at us women like we are nothing more than a piece of meat there for their sexual entertainment! This city is broken and if I have to live here more than one year I'm going to lose my shit! I CANT TAKE IT ANYMORE!!!!!!!

This City is like a big Madhouse,with many disgusting,filthy rude Bastards and dumb women and Berlin/Germany is not a western european city/country its pretty much East Europe not only because of one third of the residents in Berlin coming from eastern europe Countrys and from Balkans.

From a vice article:
"Ayahuasca has become quite popular in yoga circles and, even though it embarrasses me a little to put these three words together, the "Berlin meditation scene." For late thirtysomething affluent vegans who don't go to clubs anymore and who spend Christmas in India so they don't have to visit their parents, it's about as hip as partner swapping."
I cringe everytime.

They don't understand the principle of meditation and yoga, I go almost daily to a yoga school in Berlin (i used to do it in my home country for 10 years). They keep looking around during the class, to check if someone can do the poses better than they do. They can't understand that yoga certainly is not about competition. They just do it to show off and brag about it. As for veganism, yeah it's amazing to care about animals and be receptive to their suffering, they miss a huge point though, veganism is about compassion, yet they show absolutely no compassion to their fellow human beings that they have no problem to treat like shit.
Useless pieces of crap...

Berlin is a poor, boring, dysfunctional place - in fact it is the place that comes to existence when you re-unify two separated halves: one having been ruled and ruined by Socialists for 40 years, and the other one having been a heavily subsidised (therefore equally inefficient), corruption-ridden outpost of the Western world. Putting the two together certainly won’t get you a positive balance. In the meantime, these conditions have become deeply engrained into every aspect of Berlin’s social, economic, and political existence. Just think of ineffective and inefficient public services, the expectations of entitlement of many Berliners, and its useless political class (I am talking about Berlin’s own politicians here, not the national parliament or federal government). However, it seems that no German politician ever considered that appropriately - instead, they thought making it the capital again was a good idea… Former chancellor Kohl still deserves to get his wheelchair punctured for the epic historical failure he has caused.

Important note to foreigners: Berlin is luckily not reflective of Germany. Go somewhere else (e.g. Hamburg, Munich, Frankfurt) to see what this country is all about - and why it is a lovely place to be. Berlin is just a failure in German history, again…

Important note to Berliners: No, you are not living in a great city, certainly not a true world city. You cannot compare yourself to London, New York, Shanghai, or Tokyo - because your city simply cannot compete with these places. While these places are true alpha cities, where future is made, where creativity resides, and where the economy is buzzing, your place is a gamma city at best. Anyone who says the opposite is caught in a misconception trap (read about Plato’s allegory of the cave to understand the philosophical underpinnings of this issue). Yes, your city is cheap - but you know what they say: “Cheap city, cheap people!”

Needless to say, I cannot wait for the moment when I am going to leave this city. I also might write a book: “Berlin - Streets paved with shit”

I just wanted to share this. Why Berlin is not an alpha city. Berlin is a Beta +, although it seems a little overrated because it shares the classification with the likes of Hamburg, Düsseldorf and Montreal. But it also shares it with Cairo and Beirut so what do I know.

I have read a crazy bunch of posts from here, and sadly I can related to pretty much all of them.
I hate this ridiculous city and I wonder if the "Berlin is awesome" bullsh*t is ever going to stop.
I totally get with the posts are anonymous but it's too bad we have no way of getting in touch with each other. I always get the most suspicious looks ever whenever I say that no, Berlin is not cool and that no, I don't like being here. Like I'm the only one in this sh*t city to understand what's really going on. It's impossible to make friends here, or even acquaintances, I am getting lonely and depressed as sh*t. Therefore I think it would actually be awesome to hang out with the people who are expressing their feelings on this website.

What do the germans always f*cking stare at people like this? Don't they know that it's not polite?
I am sick of being stared at like I'm a f*cking strange animal in a zoo.
In any other countries, this sick starring would initiate arguments and fights, but here it's just normal. They stare because they have NO IDEA how to interact with people, they are too f-cking stupid to understand the most simple and basic rules of politness. But wait, to understand this they should be human, to my point of vue they are nothing but disgusting robots.

Normally you expect that being motivated, self-driven, hard working & polite will make you appreciated in many places. This is not the case in Berlin, it's better to be a bum living out of the government than working hard, you only need to be alternative, or an artist, or a DJ.

The "people" living in this country are like mosquitos. They probably are needed in the biosphere, but still, they are ugly, freaking annoying, black (like nazis), they just want to suck your blood, they love lakes, they make a very annoying sound and you just want to smash them every freaking time they are around.

I hate when Berliners say:"Oh, you don't like the city, so why don't you just leave?", ignoring the fact that in my home country I would have no chance whatsoever (I'm Italian), that I had to leave the city that I used to call "my true home" (Madrid) because of lack of jobs. Do they really think we are all coming here to freaking Germany by choice? If I could choose I would live in a place full of human beings, not this filthy idiot full of brainless robots. Stupid, useless, annoying filth. I hope that one day you'll go on holiday to South Europe and every time you order food people poop in it. They wouldn't even see the difference anyway, they love eating shit!!! Oh God, I hate these people so much...
