It is trying to be something, and I have absolutely no idea what that something is. This is why most of us are frustrated and angry. Most cities proudly boast or at least blatantly accept what they stand for ("We are all about IMMIGRANTS BRINGING IN MONEY" or "We are all about TOURISM" or "We are built on TECHNOLOGICAl INNOVATION" or whatever) but Berlin? Pretending to be something it is not. And I have no idea what that something is. That's the most enraging, and embarrassing part of living in that city. Their try-hardness is so transparent--they want to be some kind of 70's-era NYC if the grunge era happened during that time...or something?--and apart from the WW2 guilt memorials, what the everloving feck is Berlin all about? Bunch of posers, desperately attempting to turn it into an artistic / cultural mecca. Emphasis on desperately. If everyone there could just relax and be themselves, it might actually be a city worth staying in, and one with all the potential in the world.

Sorry about the War Thing, Berlin, but you are overcompensating so hard you have become self-parody.

Had to go into the city the other day by S and U bahn to a meeting - my car in in the shop :( I had truly forgotten just how disgusting and smelly this place is and how hard people try to look dirty and broke. I walked a bit around Kotti, it was a bright sunny day full of activity but still people were scowling and tons of drunks and beggars and people selling garbage... or art, sorry, on every spare piece of dirty bottle cap covered grass.
I took a long shower when I got home.

Come to Berlin. You will have fun as long as you are trashy and white.
"We will have equal rights for all. Except blacks, Asians, Hispanics, Jews, gays, women, Muslims. Uhmm...Everybody who's not a white man. And I mean white-white, so no Italians, no Polish, just people from Ireland, England, and Scotland. But only certain parts of Scotland and Ireland. Just full blooded whites. No, you know what? Not even whites. Nobody gets any rights."

Cant really singlemout a location. Each and every part has its own unique reason to be loathed. From top to bottom it is really the worst place I have ever been too. I have been to dirtier places but they were located near natural wonders or had interesting architecture. I have been too poorer places but they had friendly people or some ,ind of community feeling. I have been to colder, darker places but they had interesting cultural ways of passing the dark days or, as said, some sort of shared method of getting through it together. This place just sucks

Modern Sodom and Gomorrah. Filled with lust, laziness, self-destruction. Fragmented and injured city. Germany's prostitute. bruised hussy of modern social-capitalism. It can really give you a nice slap into your pretty face and make you see how useless humans can be, if of course your pupils still function.

I posted something similar some time ago in this very website, Berlin is so awesome, haters're gonna hate yada yada. So I've been following this site ever since, lurking once in a while... so this one is my second post here yeyy. The problem is that I've seen myself morphing from a Berlin lover to a Berlin hater. Berlin has its appeal to newcomers one cannot deny that, tho I'm still not sure what that is, it's not the bright lights that draw you in like in New York or Vegas. Maybe it's because it is aestheticaly pleasing to some extent... and drugs, I dunno. Now I can confidently say, Berlin you suck; people, leave as soon as you can. All the reasons are already here in this website there are some others I know will appear here eventually. So my 2 cents about the city are: even though I hate generalizations, here is one. There are only two kinds of people who like this city and stay, foreigners who come from a worse place (those who think a 2E doener makes Berlin a great city), and Germans who were born in small villages and who just started partying like a teenager at the "ripe" age of 29. So, don't mind me, carry on with your lifes, nothing to see here, leave Berlin.

me too.... but i think it's a reasonable reaction, the people here are an unpleasant mix of arrogant and pretentious whilst being incapable and worthless. Selfishness, laziness and ambitionlessness are all encouraged and branded as Berlin being cool and relaxed...
everyone says get out...
i can't, I'm too far in, but maybe you still can?!

As a true Berliner, (Berlin family roots trace back to the early 19th century) I now start to absolutely loathe my once beloved city. I don't even know where to start my rant: the agressive Middle Eastern youngsters, the local "getting-dirtier-and-trashier-every-year" German chavs, the annoying anarcho-hipsters with their "anti-capitalist/fascist" and "refugees welcome" attitude (but then they are all the offpsring of elitist doctors, lawyers and only spent time with other "Aryans" etc.), the lousy politicians and civil servants, the self-righteous attitude of "Berlin-place to-be" New Berliners, the desire to always be "against anything mainstream or conservative"... thank god for the last true(West-)Berliners who are left, the young and open-minded foreign and local students I deal with on a daily basis and all of you international and educated travelers/expats/good immigrants on here who make that place still liveable to me within that jungle of provincial Krauts, scummy immigrants and political extremists of all sides...

Because they are agressive. Ever been to the Columbiabad or Prinzenbad? Marvelous experience! I mentioned the German chavs (=Prolls in deutsch) and I don't like them either. Eastern Europeans are cool. I'm fine with Polish and Russian people.

Every place I have lived before... when I get up at 5:00 in the morning to go sonewhere... the streets are peopled.. intermittently with bleary eyed individuals sipping their morning coffee and trying to awaken from their dreams. Berlin is also full of bleary eyed people but the coffee is replaced by pilsner and I doubt very much they qre interested in departing the dream.
