Discussion forum overview
I lived in Mitte for 6 months and loved it. I was in a huge flat which I shared with a german and a spanish girl. I paid 300 euros a month with everything included! I was in the heart of the city, with trams opposite my flat, buses on my street and 2 U-Bahn stations and 1 SBahn station all within a 5 minute…
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…
Hi Amanda, I hate smoking in bars as well, but the people on Tuesday nights are so awesome that I attend anyway, more often in the summer, and I will definitely be heading back in the warm weather when they open the doors and windows. Must be soon huh?
Just wanted to say that thanks to BlueCow and the awesome Tuesday night…
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.
It's Saturday; the sun is shining, the air is clean & crisp, and it's a beautiful day. And to make it even more beautiful, we're going to tackle everyone's favourite aspect of German & English ... hmmm, what could that be? This afternoon, a 3pm start, The Exchange.…
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…
look for schwarzer Tee or Klassik Tee or Traditional Tee.
Germans don't normally add milk so images are not what you'd expect.
Black tea can be found in every supermarket inc Lidi who stock three kinds of black tea (above). Weather it's worth drinking is another question.
Dolores is OK. And by "OK", I mean, Just OK. If you've lived in Germany for a while, you're happy to get a burrito sans remoulade and corn, but if you're fresh from the States, you'd still much prefer Taco del Mar. I am of the conviction that I make a much better…
We've put our disco shoes back in the closet after an incredible first party on Saturday night. If you missed it, no worries, the next event will be in May or June. In the meantime, we're going back to basics again this week. Beer, beer, beer, vodka and tonic, beer, vodka shot, vodka…
I'm trying to organize a Berlin basketball group for people of all levels and ages.
I used to organize a basketball group in Rome and in three years we got to have about 100 people join us. It was all levels (from complete beginners to some folks from NCAA), all ages (the…
Although this thread is somewhat dated I would like to share my experience with a fertility treatment in Berlin. After I had interviewed several of the clinics mentioned in previous posts, I chose Dr. Temme in Tiergarten (www.ivf-berlin.de) based on a personal recommendation by a co-worker.…
As a note, unless you or your spouse is American, you can't go JFK: by Senate rule it is only for Americans and Germans, no other anglophones.
We put our kids in a German school and are very happy with it- we were accepted at another bilingual English school and looked at JFK but we actually…
I've had minor problems with Deutche Bank but I think they were more German banking procedures than DB things that I was running into. All that aside, I think this can be said about Deutche Bank: They're known around the world and have lots of connections. I don't think it's…
Hello nice people!
Next Saturday we're organizing our 12th Homeless Veggie Dinner. Lately the word about our humble event has spread greatly and these dinners turned into big, community events averaging on about 150 guests per dinner.
Our small team, joined by an extremely enthusiastic…
Well, Berliners? How'd you do at the marathon today? Fantastic weather!
I was shocked to get a time of 4:07. I was hoping for 4:40. Ran without a watch as always, and due to starting in group H approx. 20mins after the initial gun, had no idea how I was doing. Passed the purple 4:30…
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…
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:…
