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.

As someone who has visited Berlin many times and actually stayed in Kreuzberg for many of those visits- L.O.L.

Berlin is the biggest hipster capital I've ever seen, and that's just the Germans. Honestly, I don't think tourists are the issue.

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

Hipsters, you are what is wrong with America. Greedy and self important little imps.

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.

Andromeda: Fell In Love With a Chair: Oh yes, because German tourists aren't infamous for doing annoying things like, say, going nuts while reserving poolside chairs with towels....

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.


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.

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


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.

If only there were some sort of simple badge that could be worn instead, to mark you...

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.

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.
