10 months later im making a response because I like this site
>were you born here or moved?
born, then moved to suburb at 10
>what do you love about it?
relatively affordable "world-city" with diverse cultural things to enjoy, and good flight connections. its in the middle of nowhere, with tons of forests and lakes surrounding it. unlike london, the city clearly ends at some point. Berlin is pretty green for a city that size, with plenty of parks and trees along the streets. public transport is expensive but diverse and good.
>what do you hate about it?
It does not feel like berlin anymore (migrants). annoyingly hip students. politicians of berlin shy away to deal with problems assoctiated with migrants (drugs, problem-schools, clans)
>your Berlin pro tips?
depends what you are into, night life and museums are great. berlin has a unique history as divided city and symbol of the iron curtain. currywurst hype is a scam, no berliner is actually proud of it. the zoo has highest species diversity in the world. also largest dinosaur skeleton + archaeopterix. bust of nofretete is truly beatiful if you stand before it. possibly no real pro tips, but i dont know your interests.
>anything else I forgot
berlin is poor and dirty. it is not an idyllic swiss city with flowers at each balcony and clean streets, and its architecture is not en par with other german cities. its one of THE places to spend your youth in europe though, if you are outgoing type of person.
