Long-haul Berliners, Thurs. 24.4. meetup evening!
Hello Berlin Toytowners, Has anyone ever thought of having a regular group for folks planning to stay in Berlin indefinitely? Reasons: 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…

Drug dealing scene around Görlitzer bahnhof
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 I had seen it all until one day I saw…

Any Recommendable Companies who offer Internships?
As someone who as just doing this a few short weeks ago (I got an internship with a small media consultancy), I have a few pieces of advice and of course some links. 1. There are English-only jobs/internships in Berlin, but they are pretty competitive and tend to pay even less than those that require German-language skills.…

Cost of living in Berlin
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…

Berlin public transport tickets are for one way
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.…

Finding ANY jobs in Berlin
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…

Public transport tickets for tourists
No, you cannot, unless you want to be dense. An AB day ticket for EUR 6.70 is cheaper than nearly any other European capital - including Paris. It's also cheaper than a 4-pack of regular tickets, at EUR 8.40. If you take 3 full-fare trips that day, you have already gotten your money's worth. It's…

Received unfair BVG fine - Best way to complain
One thing is for sure, you should never pay the fine on the spot if you have any intention of contesting it later. If you plan on contesting, though--as I was told by the controller who ticketed me--you are best advised to do it the very next time you have a chance. Don't wait a week, do it within 48 hours…

Berlin to ban "repurposing" of living space
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…
