I always thought of Berlin as a really cool, hip city – and, for once, I was completely right. Berlin met my expectations and preceded them in many ways. Upon stepping off the bus I immediately blended in, despite my quirky outfits which are met with utmost confusion in most places.
If Berlin was a person, it would be that cool bearded guy from your arts class who listens to vinyls and takes photos of garbage with a Diane F+ camera, but somehow manages to come off as sweet rather than insufferably pretentious. It is a city where the old and the new coexist so harmoniously that they blend into the kind of organic cultural smoothie hipsters so enjoy. You know who else enjoys it, darling? I do. And I think I’m as far from hipsterdom as can be.
So, are you ready to follow me into the vortex of grand history and daring novelty that is Berlin? Read on to have a look at some of the best hipster street art in Berlin!
