People, Berlin: 14 reviews and 7 photos

Others have written on this site about the dangers of pickpockets, then when you read the comment it says "like any other large city....". Yes, Berlin is a large city and I've no doubt has people you'd rather not meet. I want to say though, that in coming to Berlin every year for the past four years I've nothing but praise for the friendly, laid-back people who more often than not go out of their way to make you feel welcome.

Of particular note, I happened to lose my wallet the first night I arrived on my holiday two years ago. The hotel staff made phone calls to the bus company, to no avail. The next morning I went back to the airport and found it had been returned to the police, including every cent of cash and all my credit and debit cards. Frankly, I can't think of anywhere else that would have happened.
