You really have to hate strangers who angrily yell at your kid for doing something kid-like.
-At 3 years, my son was loudly berated for walking off (6 meters) with a cheap-ass synthetic pillow on display outside of a Matrazen Direct store. The workerin just came up behind him, snatched the thing away from him and started screaming. I hadn't noticed he'd taken it, but she insisted I was teaching him to steal.
-At 4, he was walking on a path through a little garden area at Upsala Kinderklub. A worker started yelling at him because he assumed the plants would get stepped on. I had my bilingual son translate what I wanted to say back to the guy, then I did some yelling back. My boy said, "You sure told HIM something" xD
- At 6 he pulled one of those levers that send a loaf of bread down a chute at Edeka's bread-o-mat. Only after the lady there realized I didn't want to buy that loaf did she start squawking at my kid. Can't people pick on someone their own size?
I visited this site not to tell these stories, but because I wanted to share my methods for turning my hatred for Berlin into a kind of acceptance. I am stuck in this city after all, because I can't take my kid back home (deutsch mother, divorced). I got distracted by other people's stories. And I think maybe I don't accept it. I have no method. I think I am just becoming numb.

Yeah, this really goes up in the winter. I guess it's because it's dark, cold, and miserable outside. Of course, no german will ever confirm this, they'll stick to "Im honest and direct" even if you put a gun to their head.

Look in the mirror, the genocide happened under European colonists/settlers. Quite a bit of it may have been accidental, such as spreading illnesses the native Americans were less adapted to. German ancestry is the largest European ethnic ancestry in the US and at one time German was the second most commonly spoken language in the US until it was forcibly removed from public use and discouraged due to WWII. Also, keep in mind European settlers did the same throughout the Americas, including Canada and all of Latin America.

The reason a large percentage of Americans are obese has to do with the way the cities are structured, requiring a car to get around, and the prevalence and low cost of junk food (an issue other developed countries, including Germany, share as well), not thanksgiving. If you spend time in NY, a city more similar to European ones where most people walk and take public transport, you'll notice most people are not obese and look healthy, eat healthy for the most part, and dress well.

This is what really hit me - why are Germans trying to steal all the worst parts of the US culture? Like sure, they'll steal black friday which is freaking awful, but they won't steal stuff like being pleasant to people or getting to know your neighbors, which is really nice.

So, you don't want black friday? Then stop trying to imitate it! You know what I hate about you berliners? When you use english phrases like "Ah, ok!" or "Ah, wow", or "ah, oh my god, das ist...". Just stop, ok? It makes you sound retarded.

Oh, also, I really like your usage of "dumb americans". I have never met a culture that is so "besserweisser" or however you call it. You've got Berliners that have spent a week in NYC (shopping, because they are cheapskates) talking about the USA as if they spent 20 years there, traveling, meeting people, learning. They know all about it - how the education system sucks, how the healthcare is bad, police brutality, etc. And their favorite: everyone is fat!

Great! Then stop coming over, do your shopping in the UK or China. You know, one thing I dislike are the dumb german tourists. See, they've been coddled up until being around 30, so they biologically they are adults, but mentally they are about 15-16. Sure, they have phds and masters degrees and are "herr engineer" or "frau doktor" and all that stuff, but here's some childlike stuff that I've seen dumb german tourists do in nyc:

- try walking from manhattan to brooklyn because "how far can it be?", then calling 2 hours later and crying "vee are lost, vee are scared, vee've run out of vater, help us!"
- unable to comprehend sales tax (it differs from state to state, even from city to city)
- unable to comprehend leaving a tip ("but I left them a 25 cent tip, why did they throw me out!?")
- being terrified of everything - I once saw a german family holding hands (for fear of getting lost) and refusing to let go even when going through the subway turnstiles), approaching food vendors as if they were lepers, etc.
- just standing in the middle of the sidewalk, eyes upwards...
- ... then getting pushed to the side by someone in a hurry...
- ... talking about how rude americans are. Jesus christ, just don't stand in the middle of the sidewalk, people are trying to get somewhere, you're blocking them.
- being smelly. I poop you not, but germans don't like using deodorant. It's hard to catch this outside, but if you get on a plane going to germany that's full of germans... getting ready for some major stink.
- doing the whole german noise thing - snuffling, sneezing, gurgling, farting, burping, just being disgusting. Especially visible (audible?) in restaurants.

But it's all ok because these people all have PhDs! They're "smart"!

Job-hunting in Berlin and in Germany 101. Questions like age, picture, multiple phones are illegal in America and in many other places so expect a lot of discrimination depending on what you look like, your age and what they think you are even if you're the opposite. Expect people saying wow you speak great English/French/Spanish/German, even if you're a native English/French/Spanish/German speaker if you don't fit the stereotype. In practice you need to be part of their network going back to college and even high school to even get a glimpse of their company. Their impervious network only can accept you if they are in dire need of people i.e. IT and healthcare to a lesser extent. But if you go into these fields you may make some money (not a big amount in most cases) and most important forget about promotions and career progress, don't expect to be manager, lead anything, etc. I hope you are in just for the same pay that you will get for years to come and probably doing the exact same thing in the exact same position forever. That is your place in Berlin, so pay taxes so all the worthless people in Berlin can still survive and be edgy.

The thing that makes me laugh is the openness with which these people can express heated bigotry, especially hatred/mistrust/discomfort with other Western nations. I once had to meet with a professor for an interview at a certain technical university in the depths of East Berlin and discovered on a wall an experience board detailing student's impressions of an excursion to San Francisco. One German's thoughts pondered (paraphrased) whether Americans are capable of realizing the problems of homelessness in the Bay Area. It went on, in fact, to plagiarize the adage that anti-Americanism is the only form of bigotry that increases with higher education.

That's Berlin.

Hello,
I know this page is committed to express anger, hate, negativeness or bad experiences. However, i will try to evaluate very objectively.

I used to live in Germany ( not in Berlin) two years. I have experienced almost everything which were written here. I was master student and i am not living in Germany right now but will be back very soon. So, i am living my favorite place in the world currently and it will be hard to go back to Germany ( Berlin) definitely. This time, i reckon, i will be not as depressive as previously because i am considering myself as Germany immunized. Not in a bad way actually. I will be justifying myself.

Number one obstacle for foreigners is being alone. You probably expect to build a new social network ( including partner ) as soon as possible because social network can boost your integration process. According to my observations this is extremely hard in Germany. People tend to stick their existent social network and closed to new interactions. I had my birthday couple of days ago. I have been working at the company since 6 months and i have invited couple of colleagues to my birthday party. The fact that ,they have attended even tough, we do not know each other well. In Germany, it would take at least one year to be able to invite someone for going out. ( I do not know why ) The invite should not be spontaneous in Germany by the way, i have invited my colleagues spontaneously. So, random interactions or invitations are almost impossible in Germany to take place. When it comes to communication, i would say Germans ( sorry for generalizing but i have not had reverse example ) have very weak communication skills. They only talk about work or school. Okay, minority of them are exceptions but seriously, i could not have progressive conversations with Germans. Can i have problems in order to communicate ? ( i was assuming this in Germany )Since i have been living in my favorite place, i have noticed that i can actually communicate with people progressively and meaningfully. This is like endless loop. You can not communicate, you feel lonely.

The biggest challenge in Germany is understanding German culture. German culture is based on pragmatism utmost. Yeah, this sounds mainstream but believe me " utmost " is the keyword. Unless, there is no benefit to talk to you for German person, you will be ignored. Is this rude or just cultural thing ? You can decide. Please, make yourself get used to this fact. This is the milestone of living in Germany as foreigner.

So, Germany is definitely not suitable country to live for foreigners from social aspect. It's better to build your social network with other foreigners to have joyful life in Germany. I personally do not believe that having German partner ( male / female) would change anything because, it means you will be dealing with German culture more and more.

There is a "coaltiion" of Berliners, a group of berliners who have confused activism with group sociopathy - they Use Whats app to follow around people they choose don't "deserve" to live there, and they treat them with disrespect and rudeness. So, if your photo is on their whats app "list", and you go to the same cafe each day, there will always be one of the group members there to ruin your day by stepping on your foot, pushing you while walking away, blowing smoke in your face... the group thinks it's so funny. My bike was vandalised every time I went to a cafe or for lunch in Kruezberg, hundreds of times. They never damaged it - but I would come out and the seat would be adjusted, or handlbars moved... just, stupid pranks, over and over again. Eventually, my front wheel was loosened and i ended up in the hospital with a broken arm. They follow me and my girlfriend around and photograph us constantly lately. Its really annoying, but not illegal, and I can't complain to the police because it sounds crazy. Finally though, I managed to ask one of the people why they are hassling me all the time, and he was kind enough to let me know about this group, that has felt their need to "protect" Berlin from gentrification, by singling out foreigners they dont like (Americans) and adding them to the whatsapp group. Once the person is marked, there are people all over the city that will come out to harass them It's like a neighborhood-watch group gone bad. Very bad.

Yes, that's how people act in Berlin. I don't believe one have to be specifically marked though, it is enough that you are not German. Though I wouldn't be surprised if they have a WhatsApp group where they add all the foreigners. That is actually quite novel and interesting explanation why we keep meeting such vile Germans all the time.

They think they are 'protecting' Berlin. There are many people in this group. its sadistic and really sick, and it is the actual reason some people come to berlin and have terrible experiences, and some people come and feel good about this city. I have been yelled at "pig" on the street, can't go to any cafe or yoga class or bar without an incident, it took years to figure all this out, and a hidden camera, but it didn't all make sense until the two guys explained it to me. They still try to follow me around all the darn time but it is a lot easier to keep calm at the pervasive rudeness now that i know it IS directed at me, and that Berliners actually are sociopathic sadists.

I know for a fact that club owners, music producers based in Berlin and in adjacent cities have profiled and harassed journalists, artists and musicians that have spoken out negatively about Berlin and its scene. They do this to defend their interests and investments obviously and they go as far as harassing and even hacking their victims. Just think for a second, why do they have such a brutal figure as the icon of the most famous club in the city if they didn't have equally brutal PR and marketing people working for them. To me it's just another example of their "it's our way or the highway" mindset. Just another reason why I moved far, far away from there.

I am lucky because I am a sensitive person, and I was able to notice pretty early on this sick sense of joy each person was getting out of simply sitting next to me and blowing smoke in face, for example. I was SHOCKED when it was explained to me. So, there you have it- now you know why Berliners are cunts to some people and lovely to others.If you are on their shit-list, you're gonna have a bad time. Anyway, the cops aren't going to do anything - you go to the cops and say there is a group of people who "decided" I am unwelcome in Berlin, they are gonna throw you in a nuthouse. And so what if you can prove they are following you around photographing you day in and out, strictly to annoy you- thats not really illegal. I have other videos of these fools. One day I will put them all up. (If I make it out of this city without being framed for some crime or killed) Wishing you the best of luck- one dis-enfranchised Berliner to another.

Everything smells like piss again. I wonder why does everyone here just piss wherever? You got public toilets and restaurants and whatnot, but people just excuse themselves, walk 1m away, and start pissing. Bus stops, parks, buildings, cars... nothing is sacred.

Reminds me - I got a a new coworker. Guy came in January and I've jokingly mentioned that the gray season has started. He tells me it can't be that bad, can it? I told him yeah, cause you only saw the gray season between january and april, while there's three more cold and dark months preceding it.

He laughed it off. That was in the beginning of October. Now he's asking me about cheap air tickets to spain and if I got any hacks to last until April. Poor guy.

Well, I'm outta here before April comes around. It's really uplifting. Just got my one way ticket last week. Once I got that, I no longer feel so depressed. Got a smile on my face everyday now, which makes the Germans even angrier.

Coming here was a real eye opener. I didn't know how depressive and just plain negative people could be. Of course, I'm just not a good fit to live here. Not saying that people here are. It's definitely a great place to live if you only care about money, beer, getting drunk like a pig, cars. There's probably some upsides, but out of all the places Ive lived in, I just can't find any here. I wish I could say something nice about the people, I really do, but the amount of negativity is just staggering. You get hit by it like 20 times a day and you maybe see one good thing once every 2 weeks. Few days a go someone held the door open for me and I couldn't believe it happend!

It takes a special kind of retard to piss at the ceramic tiles in the ubahn, in elevator, in an underpass, in a doorway. just wtf

Underpass and doorway pissing! I forgot about that. You know you're going near an underpass before you even turn the corner. I heard that in Munich they are using special paint that reflects the pee back at the pissee, supposedly to teach them a lesson.

This reminds me of people spraying water at cats to teach them not to do something bad. I just didn't think the same applies to people.

These savages somehow think sinking ungodly amounts of money into anti-piss paint will change anything. Here's an idea dumbasses, fine the miserly underbelly of this godforesaken hole. Obviously worked for jaywalkers and alcopos. Stop playing stupid already.

You know that feeling when you try to describe Berlin to someone who hasn't lived there? They are staring at you in disbelief, trying to figure out why you suddenly became so agitated. And why are you telling to them things that doesn't match their expectations at all. I swear to you, few of them even had "this guy is clearly a kuu kuu head" look in their eyes. And I can't really blame them. The stereotypical image of Berlin / Germany and the reality differ so greatly.

I fully agree, I meet so many people throughout the world that still think Berlin is a wicked cool place to go. When they find out I lived there for 10 years they say "OMG... wasn't it awesome?".... my pulse rises immediately and I try not to be too negative about it but I can't help it... After my ten minute rant they are pretty sorry for asking... I try to end with " It an OK place to visit but I strongly advise you not to stay too long as it will suck the soul right out of you."

(So 1st commentator) to whom wrote it:

Firstly I write fast, and we do not have a spelling competition here.

Secondly no I am not the mayor of Berlin.

Thirdly love the city or hate it, nobody from the "real world" gives a darn about your silly opinions. You do not have any qualifications to discuss economics or politics or philosophy for that matter. Of course you are entitled to your own opinions, but trust me nobody in the "real word" cares much nor do they have time to listen to someone like you. Your critical thinking is in the same stage as an embryo in the mothers womb. You need 10-15 years to form any personality or character first, in other words you are just a kid on a nice warmly lit trip of self discovery, take your time, I believe in you one day you might not end up being a complete moron you are now. Bless you.

sorry mates you got a long way to Monty Python level, the simplistic backstabbing your word against mine, this reminds me of someone who might have read a bit of transgressive poop, but never beyond that, would be surprised that you can actually read 3 pages in a row without touching your mobile phone in hopes of finding a new tinder date.

I used to get the same feeling of uneasiness when somebody talked about Berlin and how they would like to go live there. Luckily it's now eased off but eventually I still get triggered. " It an OK place to visit but I strongly advise you not to stay too long as it will suck the soul right out of you." is the advice I also give.

I left Berlin during the summer after many years and I struggle with that feeling in my new country, trying to explain the complexities of living there without being too negative...

Luckily the struggle with that feeling in your new country will vanish eventually, I've been in you position. Wounds are still too fresh and it will take time until you have re-adapted to a real society. Even so you might experience flashbacks but you just have to remember that you're no longer in hell and no one is going to attack you for no reason.

I can deal with this shltty rude attitude, so endemic to this city. HeII I can play this game too. You're bltching at me? I'll bltch right back. You're trying to put me down? I'll put you in place in no time. You know what gets me every time though? How people react when I'm kind. When I'm smiling for some unknown reason. Mostly when I return from somehwere else, anywhere really. When I care to help my fellow man. People react like you have some sort of disease. They get suspicious or something. Hard to put a finger on the definition of it but this hurts most, nonetheless

Exactly my attitude since recently. They act berlin, I will overberlin them with my own ignorance. They want things be just formally correct, I will act beyond formal until they throw up. I might be wrong, but I’m so fed up with this place, I cant help it.

Yeah I only need to remember in time to turn off my Berlin personality and turn of the human one when I travel abroad. Otherwise people think I am the worst jerk ever and never talk to me anymore. The Berlin way of interacting will bring normal people to tears

- London Heatrow - P : Police Officer M : Me ( I was returning from my home country to London )
M : Hello sir. Here is my passport.
P : Hello. How long have you been away ?
M : Since couple of days i was visiting my family.
P : - Smiling face - It must be nice to visit your family i hope it was nice visit. ( He has given my passport back )
M : - Smiling face - It was. Thanks sir ! Have a nice day !
P : - Smiling face - : You too ! Welcome back to London !

- Berlin -
M : Hello sir !
P : No answer and facial expression. -Given my passport back -
M : Thanks have a nice day !
P : No answer and no facial expression.

Number one rule of living in Berlin. You should forget about your humanity and kindness.

Wow, I have to share this post I made 3years ago regarding the Hipsters in Berlin: "Privilege is a b**ch. How in the hell can you complain about anything when your Government literally wet nurses your existence from Uterus to Soil?! (*Speaking of the Locals) Your Universities are essentially FREE, you purposefully refuse to develop any Business acumen, Basic Social Skills or Talent. Standard rent OUTSIDE of the Neukolln/K'berg/P'berg/Mitte bubble is LESS than 10euro per Sq Meter!! You speak the Language...yet STILL can't find a job?! You can organize a Protest...but can't seem to do anything Philanthropic. You're no more of a 'Feminist' than...Oedipus. You love to preach Individuality & Growth, but anyone that challenges you intellectually..."is being Negative."
