German in Berlin - DID

Programme Summary:

Destination

Language programme in Berlin

Berlin, also known as the European New York City, is an inevitable capital. Divided into two Germanys during the cold war, the city has unique history of the late 20th century.

Berlin has a rich history but also has a youth and cosmopolitan character. The ´city that never sleeps´ has always something to offer: from expositions about East Berlin to streetart to Opera « Unter den Linden »,you don´t have to be bored.

Akin to a construction site since the fall of the Berlin wall, the ultra-modern architecture of Berlin's 'Mitte' and Potsdamer Platz area are in stark contrast with the charming, alternative areas such as Kreuzberg or Prenzluaer Berg. With their young and hip atmosphere, they continually attract young travellers from all over the world.
