Berlin’s expat community is diverse and far-flung. Because the city is so spread out, it can be difficult to find one central point for English speakers. But this is changing with the appearance of the Toytown Germany online community.
A longtime expat fixture in Munich, the Toytown site has expanded over the last year to include Germany’s capital. The site offers online news and forums for English speakers to discuss life in Berlin. Toytown’s weekly Thursday night meetups are especially popular, open to anyone who wants to hang out with fellow English speakers over drinks.
Locations change each week, and the mix of attendees is also variable. Travelers are welcome. These meetups are a great way to get insider tips on the city from people in the know—and maybe even find your own personal tour guide.
