Despite there being so many women in Berlin, the information available about what it’s truly like to live in the city is outdated and the support networks are spread out amongst several platforms. Many move to Berlin with an idea of what it will be like to live, work, and build relationships in the city but shortly after arriving they realize things are vastly different. Berlinerin aims to change that.

By covering well-known and not-so-common information, highlighting the wonderful women making their mark on the city, and providing a platform for women to connect this blog is dedicated to discussing the reality of life in Berlin. Started by two women drawn to the city for its creative spirit and the uniqueness of its inhabitants, they hope that the topics covered on this site will enrich your Berlin experience. Read about the women of Berlinerin below.



Katrin Ziegler is originally from Southern Germany and lived in Silicon Valley before she moved to Berlin. As she is crunching numbers at a big IT/fashion company during the day, she loves being creative in other areas in her free time. She is hosting her own blog and is part of different blogger networks. She also loves reading books, taking pictures and fries. As a true Bavarian with a Californian heart, she stills feels a little lost and overwhelmed by Berlin. Thus, she wants to connect with other women and provide a platform to share personal experiences.


Serita Braxton is an American expat who relocated to Berlin in order to focus on her writing career. Since arriving in Berlin she has written for an editorial periodical, written copy for a fashion website all while hosting her own blog and finishing her second book. While everything that drew her to the city – the endless activities, supportive creative community, and celebration of different cultures – still rings true, her desire to connect women through storytelling and to expand an environment where all women feel heard and supported is what keeps her in Berlin.
