Worst five cities/places you’ve been to


#322

That’s the 5th time someone’s mentioned Paris.

I LOVE Paris! Weird ennit.


#323

my glaswegian friend who’s lived in Leipzig for a while is unfortunate enough to have the accent :wink:


#324

Whenever central casting in Germany needs a stereotypical thick over-officious cop/prison guard character, they cast someone with that accent.

Also “Man from Saxony” is the German equivalent of Florida Man.


#325

In general, Hanover is the equivalent to “the queen’s English”/RP right? Which would kinda make sense as its the royal city


#326

This is basically the milan/paris thread

Never been to milan
Like Paris


#327

Yes exactly.

Cologne= chatty daytime tv host
Berlin= I’M WALKING HERE
Hamburg= a sailor who is also too cool for school
Black Forest= neat freak workaholic but sounds like Dobby from Harry Potter
Switzerland= are you sure this is German
Bavaria= loud jolly Santa like beer swilling lederhosen wearer who is somehow also a rich engineer
Tirol= awww cute Heidi
Vienna= I go to the opera but also know a guy who has got a load of TVs that fell off the back of the van if you’re interested
Styria= ha ha ha fucking hicks


#328

i really like Glasgow a lot. and Edinburgh. have really enjoyed every visit to both.

Manchester seems nice but i’ve had quite bad luck both times i’ve been, which i now associate with it and hold it responsible for despite them being my fault. therefore, MANCHESTER.


#329

ah yes, my gf told me about how TV tend to use people from Köln to present stuff cuz they sound the friendliest/warmest.

Berlin rudeness/shortness is very funny, I’m not sure if many outsiders like me and even really aware of how specific to Berlin it is.


#330

In German it’s called the Berliner Schnauze. The Berlin Snout.

Vienna has the Wiener Schmah. Using over polite phrases to be snide and sarcastic.

I’m not sure if I want to go to Vienna to be honest, heard loads of weird shit like that about the people ha


#333

:smiley: so true. Alemannisch is so fucking hard to understand if you have limited German.

It’s like the most obscure parts of scouse and geordie colloquialisms and strongest accents started speaking German.


#334

Yeah born and bred Viennese can be like that for sure, but there’s loads of people there from other German speaking areas and Slovenia/Croatia who aren’t like that.


#335

Same as Berlin/any major city then


#336

I remember the waiters in Vienna being of the old-school snooty variety. Hardly any would serve me given that I was a scruffy backpacker at the time. Saw an altercation between a waiter and one customer that nearly ended in an actual fight


#337

actually that sounds kinda funny, let’s go!


#338

Haha yes waiters in Vienna see you as a nuciance infesting their lovely restaurant.


#339

It was actually full-on slapstick. The air-conditioning leaked all over one of the diners. He went to complain and the waiter flat-out ignored him, so he emptied an ice-bucket over his head


#340

WHOA :smiley:


#341

Can’t think of anywhere I’ve hated but I wasn’t over the moon with Barcelona
Just didn’t like the layout
