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…
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.
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…
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.…
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…
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…
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.…
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…
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.
Just to let you know that Pop Choir starts again next week on Tuesday August 31 at Monster Ronson’s and Thursday September 2 at Friendly Society. We will continue working on our songs for the performance on September 28. You can see the schedule here. It will be great to see you again or for…
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…
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…
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…
Starting January 31, 2011, appointments at LABO - Berlin's foreigners' office - to extend visas can be made over the Internet by citizens of the following nations:
as well as students and visiting scientists from around the…
Spreewald is a good bet...there are many towns that are linked together on all these canals and water ways...you can rent canoes/kayaks relatively easily and inexpensively...great for picnics, day trips, big groups, etc.
Teltow-Fläming...many hiking, biking, skating/blading trails with lots catering to such…
Well, I had a school colleague with epilepsy and this was in a standard Bavarian public Gymnasium.
And she had attacks during lessons, and it was no problem, the teachers had been briefed what to do.
As long as your son has good enough school marks to get into and to stay in the Gymnasium, his place there…
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 shot. Then Chantal's!…
Thanks all for your input. Lots of food for thought!
@sandipg, I don’t have the necessary qualifications to apply right now. It will take me 1-2 years to meet the requirements for most Musikhochschulen. Otherwise I would have already applied.
@pog451, I’m definitely working my personal contacts (Vitamin…
