So it’s your first day in Berlin, you hear the noises and the people, the new buildings and transit route confuse you.  You walk into a restaurant and everyone is staring at you and you feel as if you are in the spotlight, you have a feeling of panic and anxiety – what have I gotten myself into!? 

Don’t worry, we all feel like this.  Although, Berlin has a special vibe and makes everyone feel energetic and full of life, it can also be intimidating and hard to adjust to.  There are many people who come here searching for dream jobs, to make a networking connection or love. Some things will surprise you, others will make you sad. Just enjoy the ride!  If language is also something you are self-conscious about I suggest signing into an intensive course at Deutsch Akademie, in just one month you will learn so many tools to help you build your German language, it is never too early or late to start! 

Viel Spaß und viel Glück!

You simply can’t visit Germany without testing one of their national specialties, bread (Brot)!  With hundreds of different varieties, yes hundreds, it is easy to find your favourite variety, perhaps one you had never heard of before!  The traditional breads include: rye, wheat, spelt, whole grain, nut breads, barn bread, and pumpernickel bread. There are also Brötchen, pretzels, croissants, cakes and pastries that are sure to sweeten your meal. There are countless speciality bakeries in Berlin waiting to serve you a load of fresh Brot!

Practicing for your new German course in Berlin

For those of you who started a new German course in Berlin and find the winter months to be too long and depressing, I suggest you use those long nights in to be studying your German!  After living in Berlin for a few months, one thing you will begin to realize is that the weather is not always sunny or consistent!  Instead of tuning into your normal Netlfix series, I suggest you open a German language book or switch your show to Geman subtitles. There are many ways to get a head-start in gaining knowledge before your upcoming Deutsch Akademie course!  You will impress your friends and teacher when you show up for class already speaking, maybe even impress yourself 🙂

Since Berlin is the largest and most multicultural city in all of Germany, there is no doubt that it is home to some of the best international cuisine!  There are many Turkish and Arabic stores to make sure you have access to the best Baklava or dates, Asian restaurants which carry every variety sushi or Ramen, and some of the best falafel sandwiches can be found in Berlin, and usually for under €3!  It is also popular for food trucks and stands to pop up over summer, especially during a festival or outdoor market.  I personally love all the Middle Eastern Restaurants, truly like eating a home made meal! 

Although, many tourists and locals will rave still about their local Döner or Currywurst stand, don’t miss out on trying non-German cuisine during your stay.  There are lots independent and undiscovered restaurants waiting to be explored!

Any environmentally conscious individual will know the best way to lower your impact on the environment is to take action yourself.  There are lots of ways we can all be proactive and take advantage of what we already have access to in order to cutback on our daily waste.  One example, is by using public transport, walking or using a bicycle instead of taking your individual car. 

There are many public transportation options in Berlin, such as U-Bahn, S-Bahn, bus, tram, train (Zug), and countless walking or cycling paths.  There are also countless companies offering rental or cheap bicycles for you to use during your stay.   Many bike lanes in Berlin even have their own traffic light which is great for ease and safety.  Though, I still recommend using your helmet since Germany is known for their fast drivers!

Although Berlin has so much to discover and explore, don’t remain stuck on only traveling inside the ‘Circle’ of Berlin, go and see Germany!

There are so many historic, scenic and picturesque towns/cities in Germany.  From the northern cities and islands of Hamburg and Rügen to the far south such as Munich in the mountainous Bavaria.  There is so much of this beautiful country to explore!

There are many options to travel inside of Germany; either via train, bus, the famous Autobahn or flight.  I have traveled to the world famous Schloss Neuschwanstein, south of Munich.  A must see if you are a fan of real-life fairytales!

City living can be cramped, crowed, noisy and often smelly.  At times, you often need to get back in touch with nature and with yourself, thank goodness Berlin has numerous Parks and forests for us to bath get back to Mother Earth! 

Most neighbourhoods have one or two small parks which equipped with benches, trees and children play accessories, but Berlin also offers large open spaces and walking parks where, you and your dog can escape into nature.  Some of the larger parks include: Tempelhof Feld, Schlosspark Charlottenburg, Mauerpark, and Grunewald Forest.

The music scene in Berlin is one of the best in all of Europe, even the world.  Over the year, thousands of bands/artists visit the city in hopes of spreading music to their fans.  Berlin is also known for their incredible DJ and techno scene, but Berlin also has a progressive Jazz, Indie and Rock influence.  During the summer, it is common to hear a quiet guitar in the distance as you are strolling home watching the sunrise over the TV tower.  Since Berlin’s club scene lasts well into the following morning or day, to me, it is truly the city that never sleeps!
