“We sourced Europe to find the most current, independent-feeling neighbourhoods. The destinations on the list are exciting areas, unspoiled by commercialism, where locals love to hang out. They offer an eclectic range of food and entertainment away from more established areas”.

“You’ll be pleased to know that we didn’t base the ranking on beard-to-face and pints of craft beer ratios. Instead, we looked at everything from independent coffee shops and vintage fashion outposts to the local creative culture – the things that set a hip destination apart from the rest of the pack”.

How does it work?

We rename subway stations after the Instagram hashtag which is most popular around them. So you get a pretty good picture of how the city is photographed and what is going on where – especially for travelling, shopping, drinks and food.

Best Cities to Live as a Struggling Artist

Quote:
Berlin – Rank 1
We dug around for weeks and Berlin consistently came up on top. Designers, artists, photographers, entrepreneurs, this is the single best place in the world to be right now if you’re not rolling in money, need to be in a world class city, have access to top of the line funding, be in the heart of an incredible creative community and be surrounded by beautiful people who love to support new fashion designers. Berlin has it all. No other city quite compares to Berlin’s characteristic mix of cool, accessible and affordable. And did we mention that Germany is among the most socially supportive countries in the world. The country itself is structured so that no one falls through the cracks, not even a starving artist like you. What we’re trying to tell you is, pack your bags right now and move to Berlin. You won’t regret it.

QS Best Student Cities 2017

Quote:
Germany has been growing steadily in popularity as a study abroad destination, and its capital city is also on the climb – rising three positions to rank 6th in the QS Best Student Cities 2017.

Having flourished into one of the world’s coolest urban hubs – a major center of design, fashion, music and art to rival even New York or London – Berlin offers both unbeatable culture and a hot financial market, making it as perfect for history buffs and art aficionados as it is for budding financiers.

And to sweeten the deal even further, all undergraduate degrees (and some postgraduate programs) are free at public universities in Germany, even for international students.

While the German capital is not an academic hub on the scale of cities like London, Paris or Boston, three universities in Berlin feature in the QS World University Rankings® 2016-2017. The highest-ranked of these is Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin at joint 121st in the world, closely followed by Freie Universität Berlin at joint 123rd.

Berlin’s growing appeal as an international study destination is also due in part to greater provision of courses in English, particularly at postgraduate level. With a high quality of living, affordable costs, a liberal atmosphere and a happening party and music scene, the German capital has a huge amount to offer international students of all backgrounds and interests.

The 10 Best Party Cities To Visit When You’re Broke And Paying Student Loans
Elite Daily


Quote:
1. Berlin, Germany

Berlin has long been known as a city filled with artists and musicians. Therefore, it should come as no surprise it has a carefree attitude toward partying — not to mention booze that fits the budget of a starving artist.

Berlin is home to a wide range of epic bars and nightclubs that keep the party going well past sunrise.

Plus, you can also find warehouse parties, rock venues and underground techno clubs that will have you raging harder than ever before. Just make sure you bring your dancing shoes and prepare to be hungover AF during the daylight hours.

I should preface by stating that I am no longer living in Berlin. You’ll excuse the length of this rant but I just need to vent.. I managed to escape before losing my sanity, and now I proudly live in a city somewhere in the southern hemisphere.

Berlin seems to me like the kind of place you go to to do whatever you want, as long as it is degenerate and abnormal. It’s not a place you move to if you want to make money, friends and enjoy life.

If you’re gay (or LGTWZKLP1249), a vegan hipster, a drug-addicted loser, a leftist who doesn’t want to work or generally a person who doesn’t like doing anything productive, you belong in Berlin. The aforementioned people are usually quite empty and damaged inside, so their emotional state remains unaffected by the city. If your brain is unable to entertain truly deep, alternative thoughts, you are welcome in Berlin. If you’re an angry, frustrated racist person who blames foreigners for everything wrong in his life, you’re ironically also welcome in Berlin.

If you want to become the ugliest, most despicable version of yourself, move to Berlin.
Get face tattoos, tunnels, nose rings, dye your hair red or blue, develop an addiction to that awful-tasting Berliner Pilsener, shower once a week, listen to pooping techno…that’s what people believe can be considered “alternative lifestyle”. Being an emasculated tree hugger who drinks Club Mate all the time, is vegan, left-wing, “tolerant” and is proud of being a cuckold stuck in an open-relationship is not being alternative, it is the rule in this godforsaken city.

If anything, being conservative and normal here is being alternative and counter-culture. Getting a job, going to church, being committed to another person in a monogamous relationship, being polite, kind, virtuous, traditional, respectful and well-mannered is what will set you apart from the average Berliner, and they’ll hate you for it.

People here want to drag you down to their level. The whole city is like a giant crab bucket.

But of course, these people like to talk about “freedom”. They’re “free” only because there is a nanny state that caters to your needs, so it’s fine to be in your late 20’s or even late 30’s or even late 40’s and still be dependant on social welfare for everything. They don’t know what it is like to pay for school and university or for healthcare. These “free” Berliners are also dependant on their cigarettes, cheap beer, schnapps, and anti-depression meds. That’s not freedom.

There is no real freedom in Germany, because a nation that is so dependant on rules and “Ordnung” is void of the freedom of thought required to guarantee real freedom. Germans hate Americans because they know within themselves they can never reach, much less surpass the success of the USA, a success that is most likely the result of a mix of freedom of thought and a constant strive to innovate.

Good luck with your innovative ideas, and free-thinking spirit in Germany.

Some of you think that the unfriendliness, rudeness, lack of polite manners and in general awful behaviour is a Berliner problem, but I dare to say it’s in general a German one. German behaviour is for the most part childish. Yes, “childish” is the word that can best describe the way a lot of German adults behave. Throwing temper tantrums for petty reasons (“NEIN, NEIN, NEIN! DAS GEHT SO NICHT! ) is the kind of thing you’d expect a spoilt, badly raised child to do.


I am 29 and child-free. Several frustrated expats on this website are tied to the city due to the fact that they made the mistake of dating a German woman, and even worse: impregnating her. It never occurred to me to date a German woman. Most of the ones I saw in Berlin were either:
-Overweight
-Downright ugly as per own personal choice: unnecessary accesoires such as piercings, tattoos and tunnels.
-Single mothers (never date one, really)
-Too dumb to be alive
-Not feminine
-Had an awful attitude


The only good-looking ones had unrealistic standards, and were caked up most of the time. No, thanks. I’ve had better when I was travelling across the Eastern side of the world.

It’s no wonder Germany has such a low birthrate. Most men are passive-aggressive, emasculated vegetarians who absolutely lack charm and a confident sense of masculinity. Most women are passive-aggressive, repulsive career-obsessed creatures who lack charm and real femininity.

The German obsession with cleanliness (Sauberkeit) is also something I never understood, but even more puzzling is the fact that a lot of the people who have been to Germany (and not just the ones on Berlinhater.de) complain about the Germans lack of personal hygiene and body odor.

By the way, currywurst with fries is not a delicacy. It’s just a stupid sausage swimming in ketchup with some curry on top and fries to go along with it. If that’s the signature “dish” of your city and you’re proud of it, you should consider suicide. But living in Berlin is just a very slow, ineffective way to kill oneself, anyway.

These days, muslims are the public enemy number 1 in Germany yet, ironically enough, some of the few normal, friendly people I met in Berlin were muslims. You can’t blame them for not wanting to integrate into modern German “culture”, which is a bad copy of the American pop culture: being a single mom, having body modifications, being miserable and a slave to whatever TV tells you to do. If I were condemned to live in Germany, I’d probably just hang out with non-Germans. Or I'd kill myself in the end.

The two years I spent in Berlin felt like an eternity and trust me, it was enough. I felt such a relief as I was sitting on the plane on the way home. I felt truly free once I landed on American soil. I saw people genuinely laughing, being polite, being alive. I almost broke down after embracing family members. My body and my soul had forgotten what it is like to feel the warmth of another human being, warmth that is genuine.

Germans think that their rudeness, lack of manners and politeness is just them being “direct” and “straight to the point”. Maybe one day they’ll realize that you can be direct without offending other people. It’s not just one or two expats or tourists who complain about that awful behaviour. It’s almost everyone. That says something.

Fu*k Berlin. And fornicate you if you think it’s the best city in the world.
