I don’t know.
But I’ll continue to say it.
There’s just something special about the city. There’s definitely a lot of hype, but much of the hype is actually true. Berlin is home to apartments for every budget. There are hundreds (if not thousands) of green spaces and public parks. The city is stuffed with some of the most creative people in the world. And for tourists, there are easy apartments to rent if you can afford a holiday rental.
With a nightlife that would rival any other city in the world, and even an up-and-coming food & culinary scene, Berlin has more to offer every day. And as a growing and developing city, it’ll only become more and more. More of what? I don’t know. But the city is going up, that much is for sure.
I love Berlin for its atmosphere. The city feels so alive and so full of energy. With such an array of international expats, the city has so many amazing things to offer. It’s not perfect, but nothing really is. There are certainly problems—financial and demographic—but every great city has had its problems. Hopefully Berlin and its millions of residents can make it work.
Is Berlin the coolest city in the world? Maybe not for you. Maybe even not for me every day. But today, right now, I feel it’s one of the most amazing and most interesting cities of the world. And if you’re planning to visit, be sure to check out my personal travel tips & suggestions.
But if you ask me if Berlin is the coolest city in Europe, I’d probably have a more difficult time answering. There are bigger cities with as much hype and just as many cool things to do. Berlin is certainly one of the coolest, most hip cities in Europe—and yes, the world, too—but it’s an enigma as much as any city can be.
