The Germany Experience

Life in Germany, as seen through the eyes of outsiders. Featuring the stories of foreigners who moved to Germany - either temporarily or permanently - and tips and advice for life in Germany. Get an inside view of the joys, the frustrations, and the quirks of adapting to the culture and learning German. New episodes every Wednesday.


episode 117: The Berlin episode (recorded live @ PodFest Berlin 2022)

I've always felt a special connection to Berlin. But what is it like to live there? I am joined by three foreigners living in Berlin who discuss their stories, what they love about living in Berlin, and various other aspects of life in the city. 

My guests: 

  • Olivera, who hosts a YouTube and Instagram channel
  • Alex and Geoff from the Americans in Germany Drinking Whiskey podcast 

Some things we mentioned: 

  • The story of Tempelhofer Field:
  • The Tempelhof Sounds festival
  • The donut place Olivera mentioned: Brammibal's Donuts
  • Previous episode featuring AGDW: How Germany changes your identity

Recorded live at PodFest Berlin 2022 on July 16th, 2022.

The Germany Experience will be on a summer break until later this year. In the meantime, reruns of 2021 episodes will be posted regularly.
