Berlin: Poor. But sexy.
The city of Berlin is one giant sea of eclectic, swirling, shaking, skint neighborhoods surrounding one dull, boring, bombed-out-and-rebuilt-in-commie-concrete centre. Artists and students came for the cheap rent, developers came for the quick buck and whilst gentrification is slowly creeping in, you will still discover the beating heart of Berlin in different districts of the city. Berlin is a magnificent, almost non-German 24 hour place to be. Inspiring around the clock, with a fantastic breakfast culture, 24 hour public transport in the weekend, a start up paradise.
