Thank you, friends. Unfortunately it's too late to change my destination as I'm going there for work and decided to take some days off and prolong my stay to see Anna von Hausswolff and Swans live.

To be fair I really just enjoyed walking around Berlin without a real idea of what to do. It's that kind of city in my opinion. Apart from the East Side Gallery, Fernsehturm and Brandenburger Tor there aren't really massive tourist landmarks (though I'm probably forgetting something) like in Paris, London and NYC.

I was there last year, but I'm european so Berlin is not that unusual or special for me... But still, I love that city. It's very relaxed, it's never crowded, you can easily avoid tourists and touristy places.

The people are very cool, they're all always dressed really well.

And as far as what to do... well, Berlin is a perfect city to just be in. Get a bike and ride around, and you'll see all sorts of interesting shit. There are a million little places to eat with all sorts of food. There are amazing street musicians everywhere. And at night hang out in Friedrichshain and Kreutzberg, get drunk with somebody, do some drugs...

That's the whole point of Berlin - do whatever the fuck you want.

>Everything is grey.

Funny thing, when I was a teen, I got obsessed with the idea of "average-ness" for a winter or so. I bought only grey jackets, grey sweaters, grey turtlenecks, because I had this idea:

Everyone tries to be special in some way, but in the end, that just leads to everyone trying to be different in the same ways; this is what I suspected where fashion trends come from. So what if, instead of trying to be super special, I just try to dress in the most average, flat background character manner possible?

Never really went anywhere, but could be worth a think.

I went there to visit a long time friend.
Rented a Ferrari 458 for a day, which was sweet as fuck, took my friend along and he got pissed that I was driving too fast, so I let him off at some gas station and told him I'd be right back, came back after 15 minutes and he was pissed off and crying and told me he was gay and in love with me.
Hung out alone for a bit and went to some clubs, honestly I loved the vibe and music in most of them but a lot of them felt very try hard and aimed to lure tourists looking for that Berlin techno chic.
I came back to the apartment buzzing hard and friend convinced me to let him suck my dick. Museums were amazing, the zoo is also visit worthy if you're into animals and such.

Timing

Group
>No bigger than four people, at least a 50/50 gender distribution

Clothing
>Look like you made an effort. Black on black is a semi-sermious meme, not really that necessary. Just make sure you don't like a normie that shops at H&M. Look like youve been drinking/doing drugs for a while now. Wear shoes to dance on.

I liked Sisyphos, Kosmonaut, About Blank and Renate.
