Study Abroad in Berlin

Berlin, the capital of Germany and home to over 3.7 million people, is the largest city in the country. As a thriving cultural, political, and economic hub, Berlin attracts numerous American college students each year, eager to experience its rich history, vibrant art scene, and diverse population. The city offers an array of museums, galleries, theaters, and music venues, providing a truly immersive cultural experience. Popular attractions include the Brandenburg Gate, Berlin Wall Memorial, Museum Island, and the Reichstag Building. Berlin's food scene is diverse, featuring both traditional German cuisine and a wide array of international flavors.

Berlin is generally considered a safe city for students, but it is still important to take common-sense precautions, such as being aware of your surroundings and not walking alone late at night. The cost of living in Berlin is relatively affordable compared to other major European cities, but students should still budget accordingly and take advantage of student discounts on attractions, transportation, and food. Berlin has an extensive public transportation system, including the U-Bahn (subway), S-Bahn (commuter trains), buses, and trams, making it easy to navigate the city. Students can purchase a discounted student ticket for travel on public transport.
