Discussion forum overview
I'm in my mid-40s and have a 6-year-old son. I'm anything but a hipster, although I admit to being a work-from-home freelancer. I have been doing so for over 20 years and could do it anywhere else in Germany (or most of the world, for that matter, give or take a few time zones). We moved to Berlin in 1997 for…

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 youngest was 17 the oldest…
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…
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…
No need to drag your kids all the way to JFK from Sophie Charlotte area - the Charles Dickens School, a bilingual (English/German) state school is near the Olympic Stadium, which is, while not around the corner, just a few U Bahn stops away. There is also a bilingual state high school (Europaschule) in Charlottenburg,…

While you can pay with credit cards in some places and shops, just make sure that you always have cash on you. You will be much happier that way.
Don't be like the two women my husband had to rescue the other day who were visiting for Berlinale from NY and got stuck in Döner Kebap place with just a credit card and…
We went there yesterday evening and it was bloody full and they were scolding everyone who was trying clothes out of the changing rooms (everyone does it when possible in other Primarks in Germany). I saw how an employee scolded really bad a customer for doing it and I hesitated to do it when I wanted to try a t-shirt,…
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…
Most cities require street musicians to have a permit - mainly to regulate noise in public areas. There are usually strict conditions for "open-air" music - you are typically limited to a maximum of 30 minutes per hour in one area, must move at least 200 metres between performances and can only perform between…

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…
Hmmm... do you go to the Turkish and Asian shops in town? I find the prices to be ideal for buying the items you mentioned and you can easily buy bigger bags at most of them. For example, for rice I would hit up the Vinh Loi at Wittenberg Platz. [Edit: I just noticed you wrote "brown…

The comments made my the.frollein are completly an appropriate response to your query. The fact of the matter is if you or your spous are not an EU citizen, you will only quality for a 90 dasy tourist visa, unless you have secured a residence permit via an employer - that is a fact…
Fully agree. Watch them and make sure they're not a threat to others, but trying to curb their usage is futile and a waste of (limited) police resources. Seems like the best way to deal with the situation.
The area around FFM HBF and Kaiserstrasse is pretty bad though. I thought…
