Berlin Expat Guide
Make the most of your Berlin expat life
Over a decade ago, a former mayor of Berlin famously coined the phrase “poor, but sexy” to advertise the city’s appeal to creative people around the world. As things stand today, it’s safe to say the ad worked. The capital's 3.5 million inhabitants – many of whom qualify as expats – make Berlin the second most populous city -proper in Europe. Yet Berlin is also known as a city of contrasts. Nicknames such as the “Venice of the North” and “Europe’s start-up capital” hint at the variety of scenes and attractions you’ll find here.
Shopping lovers will also be able to entertain their hobby at luxurious venues such as those along the imposing street of Kurfürstendamm. Last but not least, folk festivals take place every autumn to celebrate the Tag der Deutschen Einheit – a unique chance to immerse yourself in the local culture and society.
Tapping into the resources put forward by InterNations ensures that you will make the most of your time in Berlin. Our members have already encountered many of the issues and dilemmas you are faced with as a new arrival. They are consequently in a good position to answer any questions you may have, from “Which are the best start-ups in Berlin?” to “Where can I buy a cat?”
