KIEZ & SCHNAUZE
OUR TOPICS.
OUR CITY.

Do you know what a “Späti” is and that Treptow is pronounced with a long E? Do you know that Kotti, Görli and Boxi are not boy bands and “nothing is more Hertha, than Union”? What you may not know about Berlin, you can now listen to. In the podcast Kiez & Schnauze we show you Berlin in all its facets. A city full of colourful contrasts. A city that we love and question. As diverse as it is traditional. A metropolis, like a village.

Take a look behind the scenes of Berlin with us and discover exciting topics about the latest trends, developments in the future and share your views with us.

STREET SURVEY

“I think this issue is being spoken about louder in Berlin these days. Freedom and tolerance, on the other hand, are being lived better and better, but there is still room for improvement.”
Melis, Topic - LGBTQIA+
“I think there is a strong sense of togetherness in the interest groups, but as open as Berlin is, it can often be just as intolerant.”
Sebastian, Topic - Together in society
“A few days ago I had a conversation with a refugee from Africa who had previously lived in Rome and Vienna. He said that Berlin is the best city for him because it is so multi-cultural.”
Bela, Topic - Internationality
"A lot has changed. People who have lived here for a long time have to move away and more new people are moving in. Many want the old Berlin back, which is the reason why they actually moved to Berlin.“
Stella, Topic - A changing city
“On the subject of car sharing with e-cars, I think Berlin was one of the first cities to do that, which is why Berlin is definitely a model city and a pioneer.”
Felix, Topic - Sustainable mobility
“There are favourable conditions for innovation due to the many young international people. However, everything is still very bureaucratic.”
Alex, Topic - Innovation
“I love using the BVG app. The fact you can do everything via the app instead of having to go to a ticket counter is definitely progress.”
Ricci, Topic - Digitalisation
“Integration isn’t a one-way street. Berlin’s colourful. It’s the same with graffiti: it doesn’t matter what colour you’re spraying - the main thing is to make a difference.”
Baris, Topic - Integration
“I think the start-up scene is unique compared to other cities and is growing in Berlin. Something’s created that you might not be able to name yet exactly, but which is unique.”
Peter, Topic - Start-Ups
“We separate our rubbish very carefully. We don’t have a car - we cycle or use public transport. We’d like to see the number of cars on the road in Berlin reduced.”
Ursula & Dieter, Topic - Sustainable Berlin
“I think young people in Berlin are very important for shaping things. They draw a lot of attention to important issues and that’s why young people in Berlin are simply an important part of the overall Berlin culture.”
Felicia, Topic - The youth of Berlin
“Berlin is a very free city that accepts people. That’s also reflected in the culture. I often find this in the galleries and museums, as well as the city’s cafes and bars.”
Maki, Topic - Berlin as a creative stronghold

- grown up all over the city

“For me, Berlin is like a bunch of unsupervised children. Loud, chaotic, wild and sometimes really exhausting.
But when it smiles ❤”

MONA BIEMANN

Mona was born in Nuremberg and after going to the much smaller city of Passau to study, Mona had to go out into the big, wide world.

If you are going to have a fancy host job, then it’s best to get one in the city of labels, music, media and artists. The best decision.
