Reasons Why I Miss Berlin #1 – Anything Goes (Pony on the S-Bahn)

I haven’t even been away from Berlin 48 Hours yet and I already miss the city. Where else would someone take their pony on the train?

Pony on the Berlin S-Bahn


Reports that a ticket inspector spotted the pony and told the owner ‘Hay, you canter ride with that on here’ are as yet unconfirmed.

Berliners it seems are almost immune to the idiosyncrasies of their fellow citizens.  Amongst other notable things I’ve seen on the U/S-Bahn in Berlin that no-one has batted an eyelid at: a man with a Fridge/Freezer balanced on a shopping trolley; a man sat in an armchair; a man dressed in stockings, suspenders, a top hat and tails.

    But why is there snow on the floor inside the carriage? Has that question been raised anywhere?
    Perhaps this video is a fake?

      It’s not snow. It looks like it, but the dark part is just wet.

      And no, it’s not fake. I live here too, you cant fake that. It’s Berlin 😉

      It’s not snow, just dry and wet S-Bahn floor.

    You aren’t even allowed to have a cat IN A CAGE on Sydney trains. This is a breath of fresh air. Well, possibly not so fresh.
