honestly, i prefer berlin over all other european cities i've been to so far (paris, london, lyon, munich, milan, amsterdam, ...)
the history is intense and you feel and see it all over the city.
the street graffiti is more akin to art in a lot of places--and in some parts of the city there are random store fronts that are art installations. in short the arts scene continous to be amazing.
museums are great...bars and such are very reasonable and good.
the kinos were cool and since i'm english-speaker and i was on the continent for a minute i really appreciated the first run english-language cinemas or offerings in english/with english subtitles.
the ppl that live there are pretty diverse.
the city is massive, has an excellent public trans system, and the ppl are helpful enough.
and it's a really affordable city (lodgings, food, drink) with excellent hostels or rents.
