Yes, Berlin is full of tourists and often unfriendly people, lots of cars and dirt BUT you never want to miss that again when you experienced living in a rather empty sleepy town in Bavaria.
I live in an area called Moabit which actually is an island, it's completely surrounded by water. As you may have guessed now, I live directly by the river Spree. I just get out of my house, cross the street and there it is! I love how central Moabit is, it only takes a 30-minute walk or less and I'm in the government district, at the central station, the shopping streets or at other sights.
Follow me as I'm walking alongside the river from my house to the central station. (Oh and be prepared for a touristy picture overload.)
