  1. Berlin has an unbelievable amount of financial debts, so the richness of this metropole are/were always the diverse people coming here from everywhere in order to engulf in this maelstrom of life(s).

  2. Have been in Berlin many times since 1983. My feelings for and in the city has changed extremly. A prison, a zoo, the home for those who were not quite comfortable in west germany. An adventure, music, punk and drugs. History, capital, goverment, a home for the rulers. Trendy, colorful, art, music again, metropolis. Love to come to berlin and expecting something new… every time.
    Not so much Berlin on my blog https://ansichtsplattform.wordpress.com/2014/06/07/ansicht-2014-073-eben-typisch-berlin/?preview=true

  5. I have never actually been to Berlin but the city and Germany have long been on my list of places to travel to. So I’m keeping an eye on this post. I should find great recommendations on what to do and what make the city great πŸ™‚ Maybe I’ll finally manage to go next year?

    My contribution is not exactly mine… but rather is from Mary from Bright Pigments (https://brightpigments.wordpress.com/). She wrote an excellent tour of the city for my blog. It’s so big I divided it in three parts. Part one can be found here (with links to part two and three): https://besteglatisant.wordpress.com/2015/12/07/guest-post-a-brieg-introduction-to-berlin-part-01/

    It’s a very personal guide filled with recommendations and tips on what to visit, where to eat, and other useful information that are not always found in traditional guides.

  6. So far I’ve been to Berlin twice, and I really appreciate getting the chance to see it from various points of view. The trips were two radically different experiences: in summer 2014 I went to see all the important sights, and I distinctly remember dedicating one whole day to walking around East Berlin, and another one to visiting West Berlin. Even nowadays, the difference between the two parts of the city is striking! It was extraordinary to literally walk through the city’s history, especially the communist history; and it happens to be my history as well – in a way – because I’m Czech. My second trip actually happened less than two weeks ago when I was visiting a friend who is currently studying there. It managed to prove that Berlin is an amazing cosmopolitan city where you can encounter so many different cultures in just one day: I was going for Asian, and now I know that it’s not the least of a problem to have a Japanese brunch, do your shopping at a Vietnamese supermarket, drink Taiwanese bubble tea and eat a traditional Korean dinner in places which are just a few metro stations away from each other. And if anything, I feel a strong need to go back again to discover more of the city’s beauty.

    1. Thank you, Olga! It’s a great place indeed. But I don’t actually feel such a difference between East and West Berlin. It’s rather that each district is different than the other, because Berlin was made of all these little regions in the 18th century. So even nowadays, each district has its own style. Go from Mitte to Kreuzberg for instance and you’ll step onto a different planet:))

  7. I love Berlin for many reasons. I have to say it’s not so beautiful like other German and European cities but it has a strong personality, a soul that not any city can brag about it. I love the history related to World War II, a sad episode for mankin but full of reflection about our human condition.
    I was lucky because I had a friend in Berlin and therefore the experience was better. My favorite places are the Fernsehturm, the Brandenburg Tor and the Berlin Wall. Another great feature of Berlin is its public transport, it’s just superb!
    In general I admire a lot the German people, and German cities are a reflection of all this I’m saying. A must for every traveller!
    I talk about my experiences in Germany and other awesome European cities on my blog, kind regards πŸ™‚
