A Guide to Intersectional Solo Travel in Berlin


As expats or tourists, it’s easiest to latch onto each other than onto fully-fledged locals. The latter like to "mind their own business, period", says Rüzgar. Berliners, whatever size or colour they come in, are generally rather introverted. "They’re just not as interested in others. It’s not really a place where you would just walk into a pub and make friends, regardless of whether you’ve been here forever, just arrived or moved here, or come on vacation.”

So, to bring someone along on your trip or know someone who lives in Berlin already and can be your tour guide is your best chance at creating a redeeming (social) experience here.
