Sidestory

The place where it all began

It’s like a story straight out of a movie: a young man leaves his home behind him to try his luck in the big city. And for Julian things did go very nicely: first, he found a super job; then, after several attempts, a super apartment in his favourite district Kreuzberg; and finally, to top it all, a girlfriend! Sounds like a story straight out of a movie. Only it isn’t...

From town-life to city-life: how a newcomer became a Berliner.

Julian has lived in Berlin for four-and-a-half years now. Before he moved to Kreuzberg he lived in Schöneberg and Neukölln. For him Kreuzberg is not just geographically-speaking in the middle: there are nice quiet places just as there are places buzzing with life.

Julian didn’t only come to Berlin because his family and friends live in the capital; he also came because of the career prospects. Being a web designer, he quickly found a job. And privately things also didn’t go too badly for him either – shortly after moving to Berlin he met his girlfriend.

One of the things he likes most about Kreuzberg is its cultural offerings. And the neighbourhood he lives in – he is quick to contradict all the clichés surrounding Berlin: “Some people say that people in Berlin are unfriendly and that neighbours like to keep themselves to themselves. But that’s just not true.”
