Over the last couple of months I became a victim of a clever Eastern European scam while out shopping.
Simply dropping into Lidl for a bit of shopping has turned out to be quite traumatic. Don't be naive enough to think it couldn't happen to you or your friends.
Here's how the scam works: Two seriously good-looking…
If you are new in Berlin, or live in Berlin and are new to this forum, feel free to post a message here to introduce yourself to the rest of the TT community.
Note: Posting to say "send me a message" is not the way to meet people here. It's not how it works. This isn't a contacts board. Instead you need…
Here ya go, giullietta
I found a "bucket shop" (Eimerzentrale) for you by searching the food industry wholesale suppliers and manufacturers directories.
Go to the URL shown on the pictures and you'll find that it's a wholesaler with prices quoted netto - ie + 19% MwSt!! There are links on…
It really depends on the size of the apartment you are looking for (in terms of square metres). Also, a two room apartment here is literally a two room apartment (plus kitchen and bathroom). If you want a two bedroom apartment with a living room as well then you are looking at a three room apartment.
Anyhow, I rent a 34…
Naturalisation as a German citizen
German citizenship may be acquired by naturalisation by those with permanent residence who have lived in Germany for 8 years. Additional requirements include an adequate command of the German language and an ability to be self-supporting without recourse to welfare.
Bit of a long shot here...
I'm expecting a baby boy in April. And I'm Jewish. We've decided not to circumcise him but would still like to welcome him into the community with a brit shalom or similar naming ritual. The rabbi at my synagogue is not open to such a thing (I had a third party ask anonymously for…
Jesus! I wasted 30 seconds of my life reading the post of someone who hasn't trawled through thousnds of other posts written by opinionated, grumpy farts whose drab existences are made briefly more interesting by the possibility of attacking someone on an internet forum.
To the OP: Berlin is no longer cool, there…
I've lived here for nearly 25 years and I'm on Weiner Strasse a few times a month (ancestral pilgrimages to the Morena); to the last weed-salesman who "accosted" me I smiled and replied, "Thanks man, but I'm cool for now," and he smiled back and that was it. Treating him like a human involved…
I used VPMK, and, while they did a good job, I wouldn't use them again. I paid 50/60 euros for the first meeting and about 3/400 in total. However, I had to constantly nag them to keep on my case and do things which I felt that they should have been doing without me having to remind them. However, I have found this…
Hello Berlin Toytowners,
Has anyone ever thought of having a regular group for folks planning to stay in Berlin indefinitely?
1. Most of the english-speakers I meet at Toytown events seem to be in Berlin either for just a few months, a year, etc., and it's somewhat annoying for people staying for the "long…
Actually I posted because there have been a number of requests recently that could be answered through looking here but also at the websites of the schools as I said above. Some of the recent requests appear to want to have an individual general answer served to them about the various schools when the info has often been…
There's a contingent of only 10,500 issues destined for the German market which will be delivered to stores on saturday morning. This contingent will be in French.
Try at newspaper shops in train stations, and go extremely early because distributors expect it will probably be sold out extremely fast. I wouldn't…
After the success of the best ever Pop Choir performance at Christmas with the 40 choir members singing versions of 'Toxic' and '7 Nation Army', Berlin’s Pop Choir begins a new course and preparation for an Easter performance at Monster Ronson’s Ichiban Karaoke.
The new 10 week Pop choir spring course…
VAT, SCHMAT. In Germany there still exists the concept of "quality of life" (and even quality of residing), and living in a neighborhood or on a street where half of the people don't call the place home can and often does reduce your overall quality of life/residing (perhaps especially for families with children,…
Ah, Storkow's not so bad--I used to teach classes out there regularly. It's a bit quiet but not much of a hotbed of Nazi activity that I could tell. Of course, everywhere looks scarier at night, so who knows how I would have felt about teaching evening classes rather than morning ones.
Justanne's pretty much…
I'm in love with the Neukölln Stadtbad ... dull hetero me never knew about the FKK swimming weekend nights
I like it for never being full and being absolutely gorgeous. the fact that its just 5 minutes from my place makes it perfect for swimming after a long day - great for the perfectly deep sleep.
