I seriously love Berlin, don't get me wrong, but gosh it is ruined by vandalism and graffiti.

I agree. While I don't think Berlin should completely ban street art as it is one of Berlin's signatures, I also think there should be better regulations, like securing special surfaces for street artists (this is probably implemented by now) and heavily punishing the ones that just write and paint some nonsense for no purpose.

Even though there's still a lot of graffiti, I don't think it's as bad today as it used to be a few years ago.

That's good to hear. I haven't been to Berlin for a couple of years (I'm overdue again, as I absolutely love visiting it), but even then I was shocked by the amount of graffiti.

It had reached new lows in my opinion when I saw cafes and bars and houses with graffiti on the windows.

The vandals had obviously either ran out of space on walls, or decided that walls didn't represent enough damage to private property, so had started on windows as well.

I am glad to hear it is getting better. As for street art, there is a simple rule: If the owner gives permission, then it is street art. If not, it is vandalism.

Anyway, I don't want to dwell on this, as as I said, I love Berlin outside of this, and just writing about it - even about the negative side, it makes me want to visit again soon
