Berlin or Bust

curso-reisejournalismus-berlin-or-bustThe Berliners are, on the whole, a laid back bunch who enjoy the cosmopolitan vibe of their city. They’re quite relaxed when compared to other Germans, but if you’re expecting a friendly smile when boarding a tram or someone to hold open a door for you, you can pretty much forget about it. They’re not being deliberately rude, these are just small things that a Berliner wouldn’t worry about. The Berliners can also be incredibly blunt when talking to strangers. This is known as the “Berliner Schnauze”, and can be loosely compared to New York sassiness. Just try not to take it to heart.
