Content of the Academic lessons


“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”.
