Hi there, I’m Max Strauss, the face and voice behind BerlinTales! I’m a 31-year-old Berliner living in the vibrant neighborhood of Neukölln, though my roots trace back to the beautiful city of Hamburg. Ever since I moved to Berlin a decade ago, I’ve been utterly captivated by the city’s unique energy, diverse culture, and thriving art scene. My passions for food, coffee, and Japanese denim have only grown stronger over the years, and I’ve become something of a connoisseur in these areas.

BerlinTales is my love letter to the city that’s captured my heart. Through this blog, I want to share my knowledge and experiences with both locals and tourists alike, showcasing the very best that Berlin has to offer. From hidden culinary gems and artisanal coffee shops to the finest boutiques and cultural events, BerlinTales covers everything you need to know to make the most of your time in this remarkable city.

When I’m not exploring the latest restaurants, sipping on exquisite pour-overs, or hunting down the perfect pair of Japanese denim jeans, you can find me cycling through the streets of Berlin, camera in hand, capturing the essence of the city through my lens. I’m also a proud member of a local theater group, where I indulge in my passion for performance and storytelling.

I believe that the true beauty of Berlin lies in its ever-evolving nature, the seamless fusion of old and new, and the remarkable people who call this city home. My goal with BerlinTales is to create an authentic, informative, and entertaining resource that inspires you to explore and fall in love with Berlin, just as I have.

So, join me on this journey as we delve into the depths of Berlin’s rich culture, uncover hidden gems, and celebrate the very best that this city has to offer. Let’s create unforgettable memories in the city of endless possibilities. Welcome to BerlinTales!
