>were you born here or moved?
Actually similar to the dutch. Born here, then moved to the Speckgürtel as a child (suburbs), then moved back when I got older.
>what do you love about it?
Easily public transportation. You can literally reach any part of Berlin with it and I find that quite amazing. Also the variety of shops and stores, there's everything you need here.
>what do you hate about it?
>your Berlin pro tips?
Best coffee shop in the city is Café Aedes (it's Italian) near Savignyplatz. Serves the best Tramezzini Berlin wide. There are so many good restaurants that I can't possibly name them all. But I would recommend going down Kantstraße and grab something to eat there. Other than that: if you are poor or just need a cheap stay, avoid the city centre and choose the most outer boroughs.
>anything else I forgot
Rents are expensive, city is indeed kinda dirty as the dutch mentioned. But it's a diverse and welcoming city where you can experience and do anything you'd like.
