Streetlife – Experience and discover Berlin

Berliners are unfriendly and reckless, rude and bossy, Berlin is repugnant, loud, dirty and gray, construction sites and clogged roads wherever you look – but I feel sorry for all people who can not live here!” Anneliese Bödecker

Get to know Berlin, its art, culture and people directly on the streets of Berlin and see what makes Berlin so special. In communicative situations, we move through the city and practice our German at the same time. On the street we discover Berlin’s alternative and creative side through graffiti and street performances or experience the intercultural and culinary side of Berlin in the Markthalle 9 in Berlin-Kreuzberg (excursions: visit of Markthalle 9 in Berlin-Kreuzberg, visit of the Urban Nation Museum For Contemporary Art et al).

“If you get tired of Berlin, you’ll get tired of life.” You can always hear that in the German capital. But what makes Berlin so unique, fascinating, and attracts bohemians, students and many others from all over the world?

In “Zoom on Berlin”, we try to look at selected aspects of this phenomenon very closely. In many excursions we experience Berlin exactly where life happens. Explore places that wrote and are still writing history. Visit popular concerts and world famous theaters. Take part in interesting studio and museum tours and experience Berlin by individual excursions. In our introductory seminars, you will get the necessary background knowledge so that you can discover your Berlin.

This is how you can experience Berlin first hand and stick to the city’s motto “be Berlin”.
