[quote style=”1″]Julia,Berlin should be my first name (well or the second..). I’ve come here every year since i was 13 and when i was 19, i moved here and i live here already 2 years. I describe this city as the love of my life- and after all i actually found my true love here.
I get inspired and motivated from Berlin, and i want more and more from it. i’ve shifted around through almost every district (i moved 6 times in 1,5 year), doing this and that, mostly learning german and getting to know the city and the people. From rock n roll dives to posh champagne bars , open airs, flea markets, bookstores, concept stores, caffes etc- i ve been (almost) everywhere. But the most exciting about Berlin is that it’s still more to explore! And i will try to present you as much of Berlin’s hype life as ill be able to. I promise you-it’s a neverending story.

[quote style=”1″]Alexander Seller had a good life in London but all that changed when in 2011 he received a phone call asking him to do a little job in Berlin, after some of negotiating he was persuaded to go. Leaving his life behind and traveling with just hand luggage of four white t-shirts and a pair of Levi’s he knew that he was in for an adventure. A few day’s turned in to a few weeks, which turned into months. Before he knew it he realised that Berlin was his home. Being an established but unprofessional bar tender with little care for rules, he soon made the most of the relaxed 24 hour lifestyle and went out of his way to get under the skin of the city. He is a professional drinker whom has honed his bar tending skills at some of the finest bars in London and Berlin as well as touring worldwide with an international car rally, organising parties and creating events. He set up a secret bar in the living quarters of milliners hat shop in Neukölln. A true speakeasy, which for two month’s caused a real stir.He is a boy about town with a nose for a good party and a taste for fine food. Alexander regularly entertains friends and friends-of-friends visiting him from London and further afield, he goes out of his way to personally show them the secret bars, best street food and underground parties. His contribution to True Berlin is just an extension of his hospitality.[/quote]

[quote style=”1″]I moved to Berlin from London 1.5 yeas ago, and now with a range of jobs under my belt from art gallery assistant – blogger – au pair – call centre agent and having lived in 12 flat shares to date, for better or for worse I can not imagine leaving. When I first arrived here I found, as when experiencing most capital cities, that it took me awhile to locate something that resembled the “true” city, and to permeate through the touristic sheen… I’d love the opportunity to share what I have found through up-to-date and relevant tips, so that you can attempt to fast-track your integration into this vivacious and perpetually fluctuating city… and save time trolling through endless out-dated travel guides (like I did).[/quote]

[quote style=”1″]Hi all, I am Tim, raised in the quiet east of Holland and currently inhabitant of the city that never sleeps; Berlin. Whether you are a citizen or a visitor, Berlin create’s a electrifying atmosphere that touches and satisfies the soul. For some it’s the feeling of freedom or the historic background, for others the booming club scene and the (street)art. Or a mixture of all those properties that make Berlin a unique city. To live, and to love.[/quote]
[quote style=”1″]Hello, I’m Eleanor, I’m 23 and I want to share my Berlin with you! I come from London, studied in Edinburgh and now live in Schöneberg in West Berlin. I fell in love with the city whilst visiting a friend a few years ago and that love has only grown since I moved here last January. I work part time in a Kindergarten and for a film company and I spend all the hours in between exploring the nooks and crannies of this wondrous city. Candlelit cafes with impossibly comfy armchairs and old French jazz, cavernous wine bars, bustling restaurants that spill out onto the street and into the night, every corner holds a new place and a new adventure![/quote]
