German Newspapers
Interesting And Diverse

German newspapers and especially Berlin ones are various in types and are an interesting source of information about this great city and Germany in general.

Some information about them could be useful for you to explore more of the capital of Germany and probably you will find something of interest for yourself.

In general Berliners are politically engaged and always try to be up to date about the World and local politic developments.

It is normal that guests can spend half of the evening discussing serious political and domestic issues. It might happen that they turn out to be from the different political sides but it does not matter usually for the relationships. They continue to be good.

It means that Berliners are not only tolerant in regard of sexual orientation of people but the political one as well. But the most important thing is that they are open to discuss in public their point of view and share or disagree with the opinion of the other side. The only thing Berliners will not like to discuss is the amount of the salary they earn (some little secrets we can share with you).

So let's shortly go through the overview of the most popular German newspapers in Berlin.

We should also note that population of other cities and especially villages like to read about Berlin and other German news.

Of course, some newspapers can have very local character and will not be usually interesting to people if they are concentrated on issues of very peculiar character.

Such newspapers locals receive free of charge. And many ungrateful citizens even have a notice on their post box that they do want any newspapers and advertising.
