Hi, I am a single guy from New York City moving to Germany to enjoy life for a few years. I cannot decide between Berlin and Hamburg, and because of my budget, I can't afford to try out each place. I have to pick without having visited either one. A few people told me that Hamburg has LOTS of beautiful girls, a very attractive city, and a really exciting nightlife. In other words, a perfect place except for the bad rainy weather. They also said that Berlin is big, dirty, filled with ghettos, and not recommended. But other people said Berlin is the most fun city in all of Europe, and it does have a lot of beautiful women as well (just significantly worse than Hamburg). They also said the people are more open and into partying, with a lot of "leftist" / "liberal" young people...so it's much easier to have fun and hang out. What do you guys think? I know these things depend, so I am just looking at it from the perspective of a single guy (you know, we like pretty friendly girls, good parties, lots of cafes & affordable restaurants, etc).
