Pfft. Berlin. That's why I spend MY time in an Azerbaijan village carved from a single perfect piece of pre-war limestone that gives superior acoustics when I listen to my wax cylinders of Benjamin Disraeli speeches -- I doubt *you* have heard of it.

If hipster drinks local beer in Germany

is he still a hipster?

If you're in Germany, wouldn't a good deal of that imported beer be American (not counting other EU countries' beers as being imported)?

Didn't you read the sign? NO HIPPIES IN OUR COUNTRY!

Singlet? Since when did THIS become traditional hippie attire?? I may not have been alive for the 60's and all, but I read the Time-Life Book series.

/deported immediately because of silk pants?

I've heard of a similar tourist-hate in Greece. "Give us the money and get the hell out of here."
 
2012-09-18 04:32:18 AM  
The Germans were hating hipsters BEFORE it was cool.
 
2012-09-18 04:32:48 AM  
But it was a party. We were invited. Punch was served. Check with Poland.

If only there were some way to sew some type of symbol, on their clothing, to identify these hipsters.

We don't want them either. Time to find a small island in the middle of the ocean for them all to be shipped to.

Doesn't Greece have the world's worst economy, short of most of Africa?

I wonder if they have any more permanent solution to the infestation of their glorious city by hipsters. A final solution, as it were.

Damn, I can't believe I went there. Maybe they should just require permits to wear flannel and limit the permits issued daily.

Greeks can't afford to not allow German tourists.

So they'll just pout or look unhappy when accepting German tourists.


Of course, Germans love in when people pout or look unhappy, it reminds them of the happy WW2 days.

See? Smarmy and "everything is a reference to something else" really IS annoying.

I used to live in Berlin. It's a city that couldn't be more diverse, inclusive and welcome of different cultures, so the article strikes me as one-sided hyperbole.

But if the article were true, it would be highly ironic because Berlin is Europe's hipster capital.
 
2012-09-18 04:43:15 AM  
But let's not mention your German tourist hoards that invade Majorca and Spain's coasts every year. As much as the tourists annoy you, they are spending a lot of money in your country.

beeing unfriendly is just a part of Berlin mentality, this is older than hipsters.
Now, I doubt the people who are making this stickers where born in Berlin, you can wander around Kreuzberg for hours without hearing a genuine Berliner (there is a typical accent).
In fact, the "genuine" Berliner I know don't care what kind of tourist you are, and hipster are no more annoyinng than others.

I wouldn't let them in, either.

Berlin is an interesting city- what I imagine Paris was like in the 1920s. You know, a lot of people claiming to be artists really just going around getting drunk.
 
2012-09-18 04:56:16 AM  
Oh yes, because German tourists aren't infamous for doing annoying things like, say, going nuts while reserving poolside chairs with towels....

Berlin is a big pile of stinking shiat. If you're not into techno or hipster douchebaggery, there's no reason to go. The whole city is grumpy, they have the rudest waiters on the planet, and it doesn't seem to occur to them not to hate the very people who provide an economic lifeline (since their economy is a failure). That goes not only for hipster tourists, but also for everyday normal German taxpayers who might be inclined to visit the black hole into which our tax Euros disappear every day.

I can think of 100 European cities I'd prefer to visit.

Somebody should then wake-up at dawn to throw all those towels in the pool.

Oh God YES... I once made the mistake of going to a beach resort in my travels and all the spots around the pool were claimed all day by German towels. Seriously, those people would leave for lunch and an afternoon elsewhere and leave their towel there, and then get all pissed when you had the audacity to move it after they were gone for an hour even if you hopped up the second you returned.

The other German thing I didn't know about until I moved to the Netherlands (well besides a penchant for invasion) is how they like to dig GIANT holes on Dutch beaches to deter against wind- like so deep that you can't see out of it, which defeats the purpose of going to the beach cause you can't see where you are. When I asked some Germans why they don't just dig a hole in the back garden and sit in it they didn't appreciate it though.

Apparently in Italy they just set them on fire, to the cheers of British tourists. My sorta-brother-in-law runs a motel in Lake Isabella, CA that is apparently some sort of German tourist hotspot and he assures me the towel thing is no myth. Supposedly they also don't know if they trash the room they should leave a tip, or maybe he just gets rude guests.

Kind of this. It didn't help that it was overcast and/or raining when I visited, but it's pretty damn depressing for various reasons.

A while back I saw people in Oregon doing that and was SO CONFUSED. Apparently that can get you in deep shiat there because people have a tendency to fall in the pits at night and get maimed/die on a quasi-regular basis.

Berlin suddenly got popular? As far as I'm concerned, it's been the international capitol of cool for at least 4 decades. It's not like Velvet Revolution-era Prague, where it vaulted into the consciousness of hip bohemians. It's had a reputation for years and years.

But now I guess I am sounding like a hipster. "Pffft...I knew Berlin was cool before Top Gun."
 
2012-09-18 05:40:57 AM  
actualy, I even know people who LIKE tourists.
Because some are single, and they are gonna leave the city in a couple of day and never come back
 
2012-09-18 05:42:57 AM  
I'm a Berliner and got out of that cesspool of people who are up their own asses and condescending as well as rude beyond belief. Which is what most real Berliners do- either that or they hang out in Brandenburg by lakes, eating sweet pickles.

Let the hipsters have it for all i care.

I hope the backlash includes tearing the lesbian librarian glasses off their heads, breaking them and shoving the jagged pieces up their asses.

Fark you.

The only plus sides to hipsters is where they show up, amazing food (and beer for the non-PBR guys) usually follows, and sometimes they even gentrify shiat like the gays do.

Tourists visiting Berlin can come from other parts of Germany, too.
So it's entirely possible that it was a group of German tourists who pissed someone off who then decided to make some stickers.
