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.
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…
I am an experienced Yoga teacher offering beautiful classes through English in Kreuzberg.
I also teach privately and am flexible to teaching also in Prenzlauerberg & Friedrichshain.
As an ex-pat myself, I completely understand your desire to connect with like minded people and find a yoga class to…
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 haven't tried it myself and don't know anybody who has, but maybe you could give Heimwegtelefon a try. I've read an article about them some time ago. The concept is simple: You call them up free of charge - except for your basic fees – tell them where you want to go and they talk to you while you're…
Welcome to Toytown, Marama
It sounds like you're going to have to get someone to turn off the building's supply at the water main overnight to prevent internal flooding from causing building damage and/or requiring the fire brigade to pump out the cellars in the morning.
Berlin Wasserbetriebe probably don't…
Welcome to Toytown, Charlie3000, and good on ya, mate, for doing the right thing.
If you didn't arrange to pay the bill then, if inquiries via the hotel fail to help them, it's possible the hospital may eventually seek assistance from the Australian Embassy in Berlin in tracing you. So, in order to save unnecessary…
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…
doesn't common sense apply? it's essentially a single ticket for one trip from A to B.
120 minutes is just the max time it should reasonably take for going from one end of the system to the other allowing for a currywurst break and the odd delayed train. it is not a 2-hour version of a day ticket.…
Unsure if this is a little too late for your needs but if you have had no luck then you could contact a local printing press / printing company (Druckerei would be the German word) and have them cut paper for you to size. I have worked with a lot of printers and they buy their paper normally in large format…
Reminds me of the guy hitch-hiking on the Autobahn.
A truck stops - and the driver asks the hitch-hiker where he's going.
"Oh, I'm heading towards Berlin."
"Ah, well, I can take you as far as Ludwigslust."
So, the hitchhiker gets in and away they go.
"Why are you going…
I went to the Praxis Ost clinic mentioned in Friedrichshain and they were very nice and inexpensive, no appointment needed from 9 to 1 PM, only a 30 minute wait.
BTW someone has asked for medical advice; it baffles me that people would answer with snide or cruel remarks! We don't belittle sick people,…
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.
My husband is a Project Manager here in Berlin. He is in Finance / IT. Without German it is going to be tough to find a position. Right now the company he works for is downsizing and there are 15 Project Managers including himself who will be in the Berlin pool of PMs shortly. Arvato (call center area) hires…
