About Berlin

Learn German in Berlin - German Courses in Berlin - Study Abroad - Summer Camp

Few cities have gone through the kind of dramatic transformation that Berlin has experienced over the past 30 years and the result is a city that is trendy and unexpected. While very little physical evidence of the Berlin Wall's existence remains, there is a still a duality in the layout of the city that sets it apart. When you study in Berlin you can expect to see the alternative side of Germany - modern museums, post-modern art, punk rockers and more. This a city that is evolving, historical, and cultural. It is a big, modern metropolis full of artists and musicians, mixing and marching to the beat of their own drums (or synthesizers).  Berlin has a very young population and plenty of students, so its a great place to live and study abroad with other young, international people! 


The school campus consists of 5 beautifully updated buildings in Kastanienallee, in the heart of trendy Prenzlauer Berg, in what was formerly East Berlin. This is an extremely lively neighborhood with fashionable boutiques, art galleries, and dozens of restaurants and cafés. Since the fall of the Berlin Wall, this has become the "go to“ neighbourhood for young people, hip locals, and visitors alike.
