Ich Bin Kein Berliner
The majority of Berliners were not originally born in the city. The Berliner Morgenpost's new interactive map, Zugezogenen Atlas, allows you to explore where these newcomers to Berlin were originally from.
The map shows locations around the world where at least 100 Berliners were born, based on the population register of June 2015.
Hamburg, Dresen and Leipzieg are the top three German cities where non-native Berliners were born. When you rank cities around the world by the number of people now living in Berlin who were born there, then the top foreign city is Szczecin (Poland), followed by Wroclaw (Poland) and Moscow. Paris is ranked 82nd, London is 96th and New York is 123rd.
